JamesD ... I was going to mention about using the security lock icons from K-Meleon 1.5.4 since I prefer an "open lock" that looks unlocked. I got help from disrupted back in 2010 trying to figure out how to move the security icons from one KM version to another. I didn't mention anything about it since I can now make the change myself with the help I got from disrupted. It's no big deal and I may be the only one that likes the older icons from KM 1.5.4. I actually think the only icon that is different is the "opened - unlocked" icon. Here are the instructions I got from disrupted. The newer unlocked icon just doesn't look open enough for me at a quick glance when I'm checking "security". I think I got the "older" icons from KM 1.5.4 ... once I extracted them I just save them in a folder for future use with the instructions from disrupted. The icons are numbered: icon 7, icon 8, icon 9 with icon 8 being the "opened lock" icon. I did this back in 2010 so I am not sure about those icon numbers but that is what I have saved in the folder ... disrupted mentions "expand the folder called "Icon Group". Communication icons numbers are 183 (secure), 184 (nonsecure) and 185 (broken)". It took me a little time to figure it all out and actually get the icons into a folder since I had never worked with resource hacker before.
KM Icon Change (disrupted)

It's not complicated, the icons are compiled inside the kmeleon.exe itself and first you'll need to extract them from KM 1.5.x exe.
Open 1.5 kmeleon.exe in Resource Hacker, expand the folder called "Icon Group". Communication icons numbers are 183 (secure), 184 (nonsecure) and 185 (broken).
Select the icon you want to extract and right click and select "Save Icon Group"
You can also find all 3 icons in the kmeleon cvs inside the 'res' folder:
After saving the 3 icons, open 1.6 kmeleon.exe in Resource Hacker and expand the Icon Group, same icons have the same id numbers ... select the icon you want to replace and right click and select "Replace Resource", browse to the replacement icon you have extracted from KM 1.5.4 and open it ... click Replace in the editor dialog and when you have finished replacing all needed icons ... click on File > Save.
You don't have to change any icons for me unless you like them better ... it only takes me a minute or two to fix the icons to my liking.
