I just updated to 4.0 and I no longer see the "lock" when I access my bank; where is it shown now?

Posted

On my previous version of Firefox when I accessed my bank account and other private websites an icon of a lock appeared somewhere on the pane. Since I updated to version 4.0, the icon no longer appears, and I will not proceed to access my private accounts without knowing the site is secure. Where does the "lock" appear on version 4.0?

Chosen solution

The lock was rolled into the How do I tell if my connection to a website is secure?. Which is in the address bar if the area near the site icon in the address bar is blue or green you are on a secure connection. You should make sure the site name in blue or green matches the site you expect to be visiting.

The lock was rolled into the [[Site Identity Button]]. Which is in the address bar if the area near the site icon in the address bar is blue or green you are on a secure connection. You should make sure the site name in blue or green matches the site you expect to be visiting.
