User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-UK; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20091123 Firefox/3.7a1pre (.NET CLR 4.0.20506)

The hover text for the address bar site info button and ssl lock icons differ. I think they should say the same thing, or at least be different enough to so as not confuse the user about how secure the site is.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit https://www.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_home&country_lang.x=true
2. Hover the ssl padlock in the bottom right, it will say 'Authenticated by VeriSign, Inc.'
3. Hover the blue (or green) button in the address bar, it will say 'Verified by: VeriSign, Inc.'
Actual Results:  
The hover text differs.

Expected Results:  
Both icons should have the same hover text, or at least not use confusingly similar terms.

It's true, the strings should be brought into sync. But I think bug 514475 might invalidate, here.
