Turn status tool tip for URLs red if the destination is a known web forgery
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:6.0a1) Gecko/20110413 Firefox/6.0a1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:6.0a1) Gecko/20110413 Firefox/6.0a1 To combat spoofing I should be as informed as I possibly can before clicking. Can the tool tip turn reddish if the destination is a known web forgery? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Hover on the URL of this bug. Actual Results: The tool tip is white. Expected Results: The tool tip is red. From bug 632634, comment 1.
This sounds potentially confusing. Is the self-explanatory red page that you get when clicking the link somehow insufficient?
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:6.0a1) Gecko/20110425 Firefox/6.0a1 The specific page opened for web forgeries seems to be pretty clear in informing the user, but from what I understand the suggested red tool tip should appear before the user even presses the Enter key. Am I wrong? Also this bug sounds like a enhancement request - setting resolution as such.
It's not clear how this would enhance things exactly. The red page is way more informative than a red status panel would be.
