'i' in a circle logo (Sits Beside padlock) For Drag And Drop website Link To Screen Icon Missing From Address Bar.

Posted

Don't like bookmarks. I drag and drop the website as an icon to my screen from the i logo on the address bar beside padlock. This logo has now vanished. How do I restore it? Thank you.

hi blenkarnie, you can also drag websites by the padlock icon itself - this should just work the same as before with the page info icon...

I really need that circle-i (information) icon back in my address bar! It disappeared at my last update (November 2019, I think) This is the fastest way to delete individual cookies. I could not care less about that "social media blocker shield" that replaced it. Please advise....thanks!

The padlock Icon did not work for me. Does anyone have a solution for this missing page info icon?

Hello Marlene LeSuer,

The "i" in a circle was not replaced by the shield icon : when you click on the padlock, you'll see at the bottom of the dropdown :

"Clear Cookies and Site Data".

When you click on the litlle black arrow next to "Connection secure" and then at the bottom on "More Information" (just like you used to do before) => Permissions tab => Set Cookies.

Nothing has changed, just the icon has been removed (less clutter).

Thank you for your reply, but I beg to differ. My drop down does not have the "Clear Cookies and Site Data" option....I wish it did! If I click on Protection Settings, it will take me into my settings, where I can clear cookies and prevent future ones for a particular website, but with the i-icon, I was not rerouted.

Your screenshot shows that you clicked on the shield icon instead of the padlock ......

Wow!! Thank you..... you are right....kept clicking on the shield! I don't believe I've ever noticed or thought about the padlock before, so it didn't occur to me to do so now. You made my day :)

@ Marlene LeSuer:

I don't know if you have a Windows keyboard, but if you do,
you can get to the Permissions tab even faster by pressing the
key with the three horizontal lines, and then (on the dialog that
opens) click "View Page Info"......

Please forgive my lack of computer skills, what is the advantage of "Clear Cookies & Site Data"? What does that do? Also, how can I put a shortcut on my desktop? That "i" in the circle logo used to allow you to drag an open website to your desktop, but it's no longer there.

dsumma03: I cannot help you with the second question, but I can tell you what the benefits are to Clear Cookies and Site Data (for me). 1. If one website is being wonky, you don't have to clear your entire cookie cache in order to fix it. (ie. I want my bank site, Amazon, and certain others to remember my login info whenever I visit....it would be really annoying to have to relog into everything if I did a system-wide cookie wipe) 2. If I don't want to be limited to "five free articles" on my local paper website, for example, I just clear the site data. I don't mind paying for a few select sites with good content, but I can't do that for every site I go to.

I am assuming there are also other reasons than these :)
