Attached video screencast

If you switch between tabs with secure and mixed content the position of the padlock icon in the address bar changes. This is a very noticeable regression in the user experience. I attached a screencast that shows both Firefox Nightly and Firefox 88 in comparison.

Yeah the new icon doesnt treat the warning state as a badge/overlay, it centers the lock+triangle in the 16x16 grid. I'll need to look to see if we use that anywhere else. In another context it might be important for the whole to remain centered. If not, this might be something we can fix.

Still happens on Nightly.

Severity: -- → S4

Still happens on Nightly.

Yeah this is by design currently. The question is if we want to change the design and what other ramifications that might have.
