    There were 2 userChrome.css files in my Chrome folder. I changed the .css extention of those 2 slightly thinking that the new one i dropped in might interefere in some way/s.

    Very easy to do, and only takes a minute for an extremely useful improvement. This is the type of help you can quickly give to everybody you know, oh and you.

    The color code behind the PayPal URL is #A0C8A0 if you want to tinker and make it darker.

    But yes excellent modification one of those things everyone should have, it could save a lot of people being phished.

    I wish i'd changed the title of this thread to -

    Make FF SSL address bar turn green

    I got the " web pages turn green " from the link. Actually it's incorrect and confusing, as it's not the web pages that turn green, just the address bar ! So if it can be changed by someone, i think that would help make it a lot clearer to passing eyes.
