how to remove firefox security certificate info from the location bar

Posted

I don't need messages like "Mozilla Foundation (US)" in my Location Bar. They take about 1/3 of useful space for URLs, even without Wappalyzer, or more than a 1/2 of useful space with Wappalyzer. If I want to see who issued a certificate,, I can click on a lock icon, right? So why should those words mess with my UI? That's like a spam for me.

PLEASE Tell me, how to disable them.

Thank you very much, Philipp! I found another option to do that. Set this instead of that string:

 #identity-box *:not(#page-proxy-favicon) {
 display: none !important; 
 }

That should guarantee that nothing except favicon will ever be shown there. :) Good luck!

hi aq21, this indicates that a site uses a Extended Validation (EV) certificate which not only ensures that the connection is encrypted but authenticates the owner of a website: How do I tell if my connection to a website is secure?

in case you'd like to hide that information you'd need to customize the browser interface with a userChrome.css file and put the following code into it:

/* * Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning */
@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
/* Remove the EVcert string */
#identity-icon-labels { display: none !important; }
