Hey

If you are using Firefox and if u go to http://www.paypal.com, you see a Green colored bar in your Address bar that says "Paypal, Inc. (US)", does anyone know how to make such?


Thanx

Sites that are Verified by VeriSign will sport that green icon. Read the following press release

Is that the new form of SSL I've been reading bits and pieces about that has some developers frowning on Firefox ?

Possibly. Not certain. I'd seen it before but had never been curious enough to look into it. I saw when you hover over the paypal one it has an alt tag that says "Verified by VeriSign" so I looked it up and found that article.

yep. That looks like that's it. As a matter of fact, FF displays that error if I attempt to open my Outlook Web Access in FF which uses SSL. (grrrrrrrrrrrrrr - however it did help me notice my security certificate expired two months ago).

It does however allow you to make an exception and accept the certificate anyway.

(as a side benefit of the exercise I just discovered I can finally use OWA on FF3 where I couldn't on prior releases - yippee!)
