Description

https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-browser-608-released#comment-224985 made a suggestion to make the current security level more visible, e.g. by indicating it on the Torbutton icon. I think the general idea is a good one worth thinking about.

I agree that making the security level more visible would be a good idea. If changing the Torbutton icon is too difficult or intrusive, we should at least put text in the Torbutton menu to indicate the current level (e.g., "Security Level: Medium").

This should be closed? Seems to be fixed in Tor Browser 8.5?
