The security "lock" doesn't show on Firefox 4.o when I go to my banking sites?


When I go to my credit card or banking sites-a little security "lock" has always appeared and I have always checked for it before I put in my password etc; After upgrading to Firefox 4.0 it doesn't appear anywhere and I have gone back to my old Firefox and the security "key" once again has reappeared. If you can tell me how to re-instate the security "lock" I'll gladly upgrade to Firefox 4.0! Many thanks for a great site! Regards- Donald.
