This weekend's discussion: What keeps you interested in Mozilla, and what expectations do you have?

"If it is not bad and not useless then why complain about it?"
I wasn't. Again, I was complaining about the fact that the icon is used in three different places in the UI, with entirely different purposes and uses for each (with the status bar one being essentially useless). That's all. I don't think I can explain it any better.
"To me, adding to an image is changing it. I understand your statement though."
The image isn't even added to. The lock doesn't appear anywhere near the little icon (unless the other side of the status bar is considered near).
"Following the same pattern, the icon in the status bar represents the status of the current document, which is a Webpage."
Maybe. Yet it doesn't change to the site's icon like the URL bar icon does. And it doesn't change for FTP sites (neither does the URL bar icon for that matter). I really think that it's just superfluous. If it did have a usefulness at one point, it seems to have lost it in 5.5
