first of all, i saw bug 140837 (how can i link to it in a message?), and i think
this is not related to it (but i can be wrong).

go to a page with two frames, one is secure, and the other not.
the padlock shows that the page is insecure (open lock), but in my opinion it
should be the "mixed content" icon (am i wrong?).

additionaly, rightclicking on the secure frame, and going to frame info, shows
no security tab, even if the frame is secure.

Reproducible: Always

If you put this code on a secure server you will see a mixed lock icon. If you
put it on an insecure server, you will see a broken lock icon. This is as designed.

Right clicking on a frame and viewing frame info does not show the security tab
is as designed.
