what is the new orange icon's purpose?

Posted

Firefox 25 now has an orange icon that appears in the urlbar for some windows. What is the purpose of this icon? What is it telling me? How do I make use of it? I'm looking for info on this icon and its purpose.

Here's a screenshot of the image: http://i.imgur.com/XbPUr2b.png

hello tjace, this icon only signals that the page is an internal firefox page: https://msujaws.wordpress.com/2013/10/29/my-contribution-to-todays-firefox-release/

how come all "internal pages" don't have it then? For example, about:blank does not have this icon. Does this mean about:blank is not a secure page?
