I would suggest having something like a notification pop-up, like I have
modified one of your pictures into:
Yellow to emphasize that it's a notification that appears for like 10
seconds if one has that enabled - yellow is the colour for that in the
ajax-world as many may know.
The notification-pop-up from the URL-bar icon would show the more hidden
preferences of a website - like all the metadatas in the likes of RSS,
microformats etc. but it could maybe also if the site is secure.
If I click the icon - maybe I should get a pop-up-thing again or maybe a
sidebar or a dialog should open showing all of the info found.
Perhaps that would be a good solution and just to add - I made this
mockup, but I'm not behind making anything Firefoxy - I'm just a swedish
webdeveloper who's interested in microformats and the modern web ;)
