I was wondering if anyone knew how to have it so firefox show the identity information on the left side of the url box without having the page be a SSL page. I have read about this and it would be desirable to have this information show up next to our url. I am just wondering if there is a way to do it without SSL since I don't need SSL on my site. I have understood there are three colors that appear depending on the type of identity.

Firefox already always displays identity information. You can check it by clicking the icon and choosing "More Information". I think you'll find that unless a page is SSL, most simply don't provide any identity information which is why it doesn't appear.

For more information about this, including a legend to the three colors, see this Mozilla page:

as souseran pointed out, the Identity is based on SSL, so if you want Identity, you need to provide  some (cash, that is).
