Padlock Version History

10 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 0.5.0 29.7 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later

This new version allows you to configure where the padlock icon should be shown.

For sites with Extended Validation status (sites that have a green identity button), in addition to the padlock icon, a small passport icon will be shown.

It is possible to always display a warning icon (for example an open black padlock) whenever no security is being used.

It is possible to enable background highlighting for the location bar.

Version 0.4.3beta8 29.7 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later

Changed the preferences layout, the window now looks better on a small screen such as 800x600.

Version 0.4.3beta7 29.7 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later

Added option to display an anti-padlock, in form of either an open padlock icon or an eye icon. (The separate anti-padlock addon is no longer necessary.)

Added option to highlight the background of the urlbar. (The separate yellow-urlbar addon is no longer necessary.)

Added option to disable the padlock - this makes it possible to use only the anti-padlock or the urlbar highlight.

The default is still unchanged. If you install the addon, but don't change any of the preferences, you will get the same behaviour as in version 0.1.2 of the padlock addon.

Fixed a Firefox 5 compatibility issue.

Version 0.4.2beta6 24.6 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later

Added another configurable location for the padlock: In the tab bar, right hand side.

Also, from now on, for my addons created after 2011-05-26, I will SIGN my addons. That is, if you install my addon, instead of "author not verified", the installation dialog should display (Kai Engert).

Version 0.4.1beta5 20.5 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later

Changed EV icon. Showing padlock and passport icons, but removed the black "plus" between them.

Version 0.4.1beta4 18.4 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later

Version 0.4.1beta3 18.4 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later

Changed the EV icon. Instead of "+ passport", I found a wonderful "green Larry the passport guy" icon in SeaMonkey, which is now being used.

Version 0.4.1beta2 15.4 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later

Now showing an enhanced icon for EV (Extended Validation).
Assuming that "padlock" means "SSL with at least basic domain validation", I propose an icon "padlock + passport" for "SSL with extended validation".

Version 0.4.0beta1 12.3 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later

Added preferences. It's possible to choose out of 5 visual appearances.

Version 0.1.2 7.2 KB Works with Firefox 4.0b8 and later
