Errors in displaying site onion/HTTPS/HTTP icon and info

Hi. I discovered in the latest version of Tor on Android the protocol used and the associated icon used are wrong. I have produced examples for you.

This site and page is a .onion meaning it should have the onion icon

It uses TOR protocol but it shows as HTTP

Strangely when I use DDG onion site it displays the correct info? It looks to be misunderstanding all others

Hopefully this is just minor display issue and nothing more. Thanks.

Can anyone please confirm whether this is just an icon design error and whether its still safe to use like this. Thanks.

Its a known error which just gives the wrong icons, everything still works as its supposed to. I first reported the error here but its not gotten much attention


Thanks for reporting! Bug report for this issue: Onion Services show broken padlock instead of Secure Onion icon in the URL bar on Android (#41087) · Issues · The Tor Project / Applications / Tor Browser · GitLab
