Icon display works backwards

Postby loudorn » Sun Mar 06, 2016 11:25 am

This is a trite issue I know.
I chose to use the Lock & Unlocked icon set for display in my Firefox 44.0.2.
When I login to LastPass the icon displayed is the locked icon.
When I logout the icon switches to the unlocked icon.
So the icon display is backwards.
I tired all the little fixes like disable and re-enable LastPass, clear the cache in Firefox,
close and open Firefox but the icon display works backwards.
Just a petty annoyance, but that is how it is being displayed.

I very much dislike the icon changes that have been made in Lastpass
the need for fixing what isn't broken always amazes me with software companies.

Agreed, it's backwards. Please fix. Even the coloring seems backwards (red for locked? grey for "its OK it's unlocked"?)

Well now isn't this sweet.
I upgraded to LP 4.0 and the selection choice for icons
no longer includes the Lock Unlock icon set.

The only choices now are those stupid dots that don't help me because I'm color blind.
I don't care about your copyright issue as was explained.
You mean to tell me you can't design something better then these lame icons.

I'm going to UN-install 4.0 and see if I can downgrade to an earlier version.
I'm sure you won't bother listening to my complaint because you really don't seem to
respond to customers wants to often.
You folks are going to hose this up, I'm trying to hang in there with you but
I don't like the choices you guys are making so far.

Edit: Just installed 3.2.42 for FireFox and I have my Icons back.
I won't upgrade versions at this point.

I see the lock-unlock set in Chrome. It's the fifth choice. http://i.imgur.com/IUpRrPe.png

Well, I think I'll just sit on version 3. I like the interface better.
I turned off auto updates which has to be done in the FireFox - Tools - Add-ons - Extension area.
LP Auto update selection is not available in the LP preferences menu.

I was confused by this post at first, because the icons as they are make perfect sense to me. Then I re-read it and I see where you're coming from. You're thinking

Unlocked = My access to LastPass is unlocked; I can use it
Locked = Access to LastPass is locked; it can't be used

But the way I read it, which is what I think is intended, is

Unlocked = LastPass is not operating; your passwords and data may not be safe
Locked = You're logged into LastPass and it's at work, so your data is secure.

Does that help?

My perception has always been if I see a depiction of a unlocked lock (icon) that
LastPass is now available for use because I have logged into it, it is now unlocked & ready to go.
Obviously the reverse depiction of the locked Lock.

If I see a lock on a gate and it is opened I get the impression I can enter through the gate.
If the same lock is closed I cannot enter the gate it is unavailable.

True it may be a matter of interpretation as far as the LP Icons go, however ever since I have used LastPass it worked or was displayed
in the manner which I described above. It just recently started displaying in reverse, hence my original post.

Again, just a nit picky item but I liked it the way it used to be. :D

Locked padlock when logged on

Postby Beatnink » Thu Mar 10, 2016 5:15 pm

No issues with having new Lastpass icons as such, but for the browser there's definitely an issue that the padlock icon shows as red & locked when in fact I am logged in and should be show as unlocked. Also suggest to keep in mind colourblind people with designing these icons.

Icon Bug

Postby qwerty123 » Thu Mar 10, 2016 6:42 pm

I have updated my lastpass and selected the padlock icon.
When logged in it now shows the closed padlock and when logged out the open padlock. It used to be the opposite.
Not something major I know but.....

padlock icon is wrong way around since LastPass upgrade

Postby stargoo » Thu Mar 17, 2016 8:50 am

I use the padlock icon for my LastPass icon so that I can easily see if LastPass is logged in or not. Being colour blind the icons that differ only in colour don't help me at all.

This used to work fine, with a locked padlock displayed when LastPass was not logged in, and an open padlock when it was logged in indicating that the password vault was unlocked.

Since the upgrade to the three dots the icons seem to work in reverse:

When LastPass is not logged in I see an open padlock; then when I log in the padlock displays as locked!

Perhaps this is an intended change, but it seems entirely counter-intuitive to me, and a definite reversal of how it used to work.

Some insight into this change, and even better, a bug report and update would be awesome, thanks!
