bug 695477 added the functionality to the favicon. Last I heard, there is interest in putting the functionality back into a 'lock' on the URL bar.

Attached patch WIP (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This patch changes the site security indicator from favicon to a new lock on the right.

We need better resources for HDPI and XHDPI screens. Also, I am thinking of reusing the same ImageButton for stop and site security. In which case, there needs more plumbing for this patch (probably would be fixed as a part of Bug 697726).

Attached patch Patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This patch takes care of the stop button. Though the site security gets updated, they are visible only if stop button is not visible.

I thought of coupling both the buttons into one, the same way as favicons. Though the images can be changed easily, there would be an extra overhead of adding and removing event listeners (as stop has an event listener which site security doesnt). Hence I am having two ImageButtons.

The assets in these arent final. They needs to be replaced with high resolution ones.
