Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10

When at the log in screen at
https://login.yahoo.com/config/login?.src=&.v=0&.u=327cuhd0kmi58&.last=&promo=&.intl=us&.bypass=&.partner=orion-andro1&pkg=&stepid=&.done=http%3a//plus.yahoo.com/
the security icon in both the address bar and the lower right hand corner of
Firefox show the padlock with a slash through it, implying that the page is not
secure.  However, when you view the page security info it shows the correct info
in that the page is secure.  This does not happen with any other secure yahoo
log in pages (ex. logging into mail, or my yahoo), but only with the Yahoo! Plus
secure log in screen.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. When not signed into Yahoo, go to http://plus.yahoo.com.
2. Click on Mode: Secure link.

Actual Results:  
The security icon has a padlock with a slash through it.

Expected Results:  
Display a security icon with a locked padlock.

Using default Firefox 1.0PR theme.

The slash through the padlock indicates that the page contains some insecure
items.  Page Info > Security should indicate that too.

This is also seems to be the case with
<https://ezproxy-authcate.lib.monash.edu.au/cgi-bin/authcate.pl?url=http://proquest.safaribooksonline.com/>.
 Unfortunately, there's no information on the tooltip, the padlock, or the
security page to determine conclusively if this is the case!

Granted this bug is older bug wouldn't this bug be a dupe of Bug 263182?  That
bugs has blocking-1.5+.  
Indeed, this was fixed in bug 263182.
