This message, along with the "lock" icon, used to show-up in my firefox browser under version 3.6.13.

Now, under firefox 4 beta 11, I do not see the icon.  I don't even see the notification bar at the bottom of the browser.

How do I get it back, and how do I see this icon again?

Try typing in "about:config" without the quotes in the top URL. It will ask you to be careful after you hit enter. Say yes, and you should see some settings. The settings that have been changes will be bold type. You can right click on them and choose default to set them back to the default value.

If that doesn't do it, it is possible that the new FF doesn't see it as a threat anymore since the upgrade.

FF 4 v 11 got rid of the Status Bar. I'm not sure how they are displaying warnings, but you can get it back by installing an addon. I ll get you the name of it

here it is.
Status-4-Evar
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/status-4-evar/

However it looks like Firefox 4 removed the Warning Messages for some reason.  The Options under Tools-Options-Security- Warning Messages, is gone.

I really have no idea what direction Mozilla is trying to go. Less is Less, I guess.

Aha, this might help though
go to
about:config
as pointed out above,, find
security.warn_viewing_mixed
and make sure it's set to True.

You could also Filter for
security.warn
and set any of those to True if you desire, but I'm not 100% sure where you will get the warnings as they have disabled the Status bar.
You do have to restart Firefox after making changes to about:config

This worked.  

What's weird is that I have the FF 4 Beta 11 installed, but when I looked at the version of Firefox under Help it says I am running 3.16.13.   :::: confused :::::



My follow-up question is --- how do I make my page compliant so that the errors go away?


Is there a way to "audit" the page for WHAT CONTENT is not secure or not being encrypted.  I mean, if FF can detect it, then how is it doing it?  Surely I am not the first person to wonder this!



Thanks so much!

When u installed the Beta, did you create a new FF profile?  You might still have version 3 installed as the program is installed to a different folder but the Profile(s) might be used by both programs. You will get corrupted profile if u have both programs looking at the same profile.
