When the Firefox session is restored, the exclamation mark is shown. When I load the page normally (or reload the restored page), the padlock is shown.

Maybe the problem is related to the forms in the page?

I'm using Firefox Aurora (14).

Likely a problem with cached resources breaking the security state. IIRC we have other bugs on file for that. I don't think this is related to bug 742419 (though that may have made the issue more noticeable).
Bug 747090 if anything. But yeah, this just made the issue more visible, it couldn't really have caused it.

Bug 766985 should have fixed this, but I still experience the problem.

Well, actually bug 766985 makes the addressbar show the globe icon instead of the exclamation mark: it's still incorrect, but at least it's better.
