I use to have a secure email website (lock in the corner) with the Firefox there's none?? I switched to explorer and it has when I bring up the same page
When I use Explorer to bring up my webpage (westnet.com.au) to access my emails it has a padlock in the corner indicating a secure site. I noticed with Firefox there is no padlock indicating know security with my email log in details

The padlock icon has been replaced in Firefox because the developers found that it was misleading -- if you check for the padlock, it tells you that the connection is secure from eavesdropping, but it doesn't tell you whether you are connected to the correct site or to an imposter.
The replacement is the "site identity" button. You can learn more about it here: How do I tell if my connection to a website is secure?
