Why not use a golden padlock? Reproducible: Always
that's why the yellow background in the location bar was added
I use both IE6 and Fx, so I look down to the status bar and expect to find a clearly visible padlock there. In Fx2 the padlock is grey and not golden (as it was in Fx1) and I always get a momentary feeling that the site is insecure, the cert isn't valid or the content is mixed (especially due to the yellow/black stripe across it). The golden reddish yellow padlock in Fx1 was much better than the grey padlock in Fx2.
I agree, especially about the "yellow and black stripes" bit.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
In addition, if the page has a mixed secure/insecure content then IE6 and IE7 will not show any padlock icons if you load the insecure content. (They will only show a padlock icon if only the secure content is loaded; Fx will always load the insecure content; see bug 321022.) In Fx2, by contrast, a locked padlock with a thin red stripe will be displayed in the address and status bars, although the address bar will not turn yellow. This striped locked padlock can easily be mistakes for a real locked padlock on a secure site. The red stripe was more visible on the padlock in Fx1 but it blends in with the padlock in Fx2. However, I suggest that Fx not show any padlocks on mixed content. Either the page is secure or it's not.
No padlock anymore, so this gets RESO INVALID.
