The green identity information little bar the ( verified bar ) on the left of the location bar doesn't work anymore, it appears at the beginning of opening a site and then it goes away and I'm on the gray one. It used to work though. Can you help me please getting it to work again ?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

In Firefox 4 and later you no longer have the Status bar that showed the padlock in previous Firefox versions.
The padlock only shows that there is a secure connection and doesn't guarantee that you are connected to the right server.
So you might still be connected to the wrong server if you make a typo in the URL and someone has claimed that mistyped URL.
The functionality of the padlock has been replaced by the How do I tell if my connection to a website is secure? on the left end of the location bar.
