Recently, I encountered an article on Heise Security (for the English version, click here) and found it very useful. The article recommended to change the property browser.identity.ssl_domain_display from 0 to 1 in about:config so that the area in which the favicon is displayed (left to the URL line) will also display the domain name. The change will make it much easier to identify a secure web sit before entering personal or otherwise sensitive information like passwords, so I also recommend it. You can find screen shots at the bottom of the mentioned article.
