Currently in the page info at the security tab it shows only if it's ciphered, the algorithm and the length of the key. I would suggest to add also the type of the connection, SSL3 or TLS 1.0. In the near future also TLS 1.1 will be supported so it will be even more useful. Adding it also in the popup under the lock like in chrome would be useful.
Other browsers show this information (e.g. AFAIK IE, Chromium). Please add this to Firefox.
Please take care of this issue.
This seems like a pretty significant hole in functionality.
This seems like a pretty significant hole in Firefox's implementation of encryption.
Indeed, and please add more important information as well: Currently it only says the name of the CA and cipher e.g. AES 256 bit. I suggest to add more details like AES 256 with CBC, SHA-1 message authentication and RSA 1024 bit key exchange, and also Perfect Forward Secrecy enabled or not, mixed content if applicable, insecure renegotiation if applicable, Strict Transport Security, verified by OCSP or not and lastly perhaps OCSP stapling.
Vote added here, this is something that needs to be fixed prompto.
Why is this still "UNCONFIRMED"?
It's a very reasonable request that is getting reported regularly, so I am confirming it as something to be addressed.
