when I updated to firefox 6 I lost my security lock on the bottom right of the page when I go into secure sites. Do I still have security ?? of

Posted

When you sign into secure sites there was a lock on the bottom right hand side of page showing that the site was safe and secure. If the secure site was not secure a red line would cover the lock. I do not have this anymore since I updated from 3.8 to 6. Are my secure sites such as banking etc still secure. Why have I lost this lock symbol???

Padlock is no longer part of Firefox; it was removed beginning in Firefox 4 The padlock shows that there is a secure connection but does not supply additional information. You could have made a typographical error and still have been connected to a secure connection. The padlock was replaced in Firefox 3 with the Site Identity Button. Familiarize yourself with the Site Identity Button at the left end of the Location Bar:
