1.) Visit http://junruh , https://junruh and https://junruh/mix.html Note the three kinds of locks in the lower right hand corner. I am requesting a more detailed and professional set of locks.
QA Assigning non-confidential New/Assigned User Interface: Design Feedback bugs to Matthew Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Looks Netscape-specific to me (the URLs given sure are, anyway) ... --> elig
John, is there any easy way that this bug could be rephrased to use URLs accessible by non-Netscape participants? (The QA owner for this component is a non-Netscape employee.) Otherwise, I can be the surrogate QA contact. Thanks!
You can use http://www.yahoo.com for insecure (unlocked lock icon), https://www.verisign.com for a secure site (locked lock icon). I don't know of a mixed content site outside the firewall to show the mixed lock icon, but you can view the gif file by dragging it into Navigator from I believe \components\navigator\chrome\default.
Thanks, John! QA Assigning back to Matthew.
I'm no iconographer. Marking HELP WANTED.
I've attached 3 alternative icons. They're a little more colourful and (hopefully) more clear. What alterations did you have in mind? (if any) Regards,
I copied the files into Win32 build 2000051508 into chrome\skins\modern\navigator\skin. It is very difficult to see what they are a picture of, especially the lock.gif file. At least the old files were darker and clearer. I was hoping for a clear, detailed set of gifs, like the lock icons in the lower left of 4.X.
I'll make some more then :) Is 12x12 the sizelimit forthe .gifs? It's not very much to work with...
These are more like the NN4.x kinds (although I couldn't find the image for 'broken') Alternatively, I could make something more abstract with red-orange-green, traffic-light like. Apart from keys and locks there aren't many obvious desings..
If you don't mind, I would like four icons. 1- broken 2- low security 3- high security 4- no security
The style of the three new ones looks OK to me.
How about: 1- broken - question mark thingy or something? Does this mean security unknown? 2- low security - a dimly lit lock 3- high security - a brightly lit lock 4- no security - an open gate or door, or opened lock..?
Some new ones... Broken: greyed lock no security: red backdrop low security: orange backdrop high security: green backdrop Since the red-orange-green is pretty obvious for most people (IMHO)
The Key Icons that Netscape used in versions prior to 4.x were clearer than the lock icons that were introduced in 4.x. They also used a key with 1 tooth or 2 teeth to distingush between low and high security. Having different graphic symbols, rather than using different colors will also prevent accessibility problems for color blind people.
Chaning the qa contact on these bugs to me. MPT will be moving to the owner of this component shortly. I would like to thank him for all his hard work as he moves roles in mozilla.org...Yada, Yada, Yada...
Reassigning nobodied UI:DF bugs to me ...
Removing moving blocked bug. This is a button image, not an icon issue.
If the current page was not encrypted, I think the security area of the status bar should be blank. Anything else is unnecessarily confusing. --> Themes.
new lock icons are in.
