Verified By Amazon
I've noticed there is a "verified by Amazon" icon in my address bar next to the FF shield. How did it get there, can, or should, I remove it and how. I don't trust anything Amazon does, so if possible I would like it to be gone.

Do you have any add-ons installed in Firefox?
It is a certificate info. That certificate has been verified by Amazon.
This is a very important info and you shouldn't remove it.
It's on every page. Amazon is verifying all certificates now?
Can you attach a screenshot?
- use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
Are you using a proxy or VPN?
You can check the connection settings.
- Settings -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings
If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.
See "Firefox connection settings":
The lock icon hover tooltip and drop-down report data from the certificate sent by the web server which sent the page. You can reach the certificates with a few clicks as shown in the attachment.
