IE8 has a nice little status icon on the system bar you can double click to view the privacy report cookie stuff and of course from there can allow/disallow cookies, it shows whenever at least 1 cookie is blocked on a page. Is there a way to show this icon on IE9? even with a addon.

Hey there,

There is the little lock icon in IE9's address/search bar that gives you certificate information. Also, if you hit the ALT key you will get the full gamut of menu options.

Hope this helps!

Edit: If you hit ALT > View > Webpage privacy policy, you've got it.

Sure, Brink

hitting ALT means I need to use the keyboard, I am a mouse guy who only uses the keyboard to type never for shortcuts.

Now I can keep the menu always on, but of course microsoft in their wisdom decided to block the always on top tweak for it so it now is below all the other bars and looks odd.
