Secure Web Browsing and Frame-Based Web Pages

Security may be operating without displaying any security icons (or Firefox may show the ""red-slashed lock"" icon) if only part of a frame-based page is employing security.

You can verify the security of a page within a frame by opening it in a new browser window. Both IE and Firefox allow you to open a link in a new window by right-clicking on the link and selecting that option from the pop-up context menu. When a secure page is open in its own window, instead of being viewed within a frame, you can then see the security icons provided by your browser as well as the ""https://"" secure protocol prefix in the URL string.

Another way is to right mouse click on the web page you are viewing and select properties.
