When you load a page that is only partially encrypted:

* Page Info > Security says "Connection Partially Encrypted - Parts of the page
  you are viewing were not encrypted before being transmitted over
  the Internet."
* Larry says, "Your connection to this web site is not encrypted."
* the Preferences > Security > Warning Messages > Settings > "Show a warning
  dialog when:" checkbox that governs whether or not to alert the user
  when the page is loaded is labeled "I'm about to view an encrypted page
  that contains some unencrypted information."
* the alert if that checkbox is checked reads "You have requested
  an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information
  that you see or enter on this page could easily be read by a third party."

But the tooltip on the lock icon in the lower-right-hand corner of the browser is "Warning: Contains unauthenticated content".  It should say "Warning: contains unencrypted content" (or something else consistent with the use of "encrypt" rather than "authenticate" to describe the status of the content everywhere else in the UI).
