      Description

      User complains the new security warning appearance make their apps look "cheap":

      Quote from user:
      "I understand that the intention of the blue flash is for "security reasons" My view is that it's just silly and annoying and carries no meaning. I challenge you to test your design decision on real people out in the real world. Set up in the closest mall and demonstrate the blue flash to them and see if they think it makes Java more secure."

      This is discussed in forum:

      In addition to the flashing border design issue, the icon currently carries no meaning of the security concern. It will be helpful if the tooltip of the icon can be more expressive.
