I recently upgraded to Firefox ver.4. Immediately noticed that the green download progress bar no longer displays. Also when accessing a secure web site the lock icon previously displayed in the lower right of the window is no longer there. Any suggestions on how to get them back?

The padlock has been replaced by the site identity button, for details on using it see https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Site+Identity+Button

If you want to add a padlock icon to the location bar, you can use the Padlock add-on - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/padlock-icon/


On Windows 7 the equivalent of the download progress bar is on the Firefox icon in the taskbar, you get a green bar going across the icon indicating the progress of downloads.

The status bar was removed in Firefox 4. You can use this two add-ons:

The Lock icon has been changed. Please read this article:
