    the address bar is usually green when on Gmail (https) but recently its been red.

    the lock icon is open and when i over my cursor over it, it shows this message:
    I have Firefox 2.0.0.1. what could be wrong?

    Did you try going to Gmail in the Firefox safe mode and see how it reacts?

    I would check my extensions for starters. The only color I've ever seen on a secure site is yellow with the lock. Also, if using Proxomitron, try passing it on that site and see if it makes a difference.

    Hello,
    Yellow for me ... actually more trout-colored, but never mind.
