firefox encryption lock icon missing

I noticed the lock icon in the bottom right corner of my FireFox doesn't show up anymore when I am in a secure sight. Does anyone know how to get it back? It's my security blanket; my teddy bear.

I wasn't aware that you could turn this off; there doesn't seem to be a setting in the interface. Try typing about:config into the location bar and pressing Enter; it may be one of these settings.

You may also want to look at for more security options.

Yea, as I have observed, in the config file anything that is bold type is a setting that is not default. I check all of those and either it's not in there or I missed it. I, also, searched the file for "lock" or "icon". All the other tells are there that I am in an encrypted page; yellow address wihdow and I turned on the warning popups on entering and exiting. But the lock doesn't come on. I know you can turn it off and on in IE; done that. I put this problem to the FF forum and so far no response at all.
