All the search providers shown in about:newtab by default have both low- and high-DPI logo images except for Yahoo, which has only a high-DPI image (landed in bug 1009299).  The reason is that I wanted to let bug 1009266 downsample the image instead, but there are a couple of problems with that: (1) the high-DPI image is on 31 but bug 1009266 is on 32, so on 31, the Yahoo image just doesn't appear at all, and (2) bug 1027791 points out that downsampling is a bad UX right now and may even hurt performance.

For the record, in addition to bug 1027791, Avi talks about the Yahoo logo downsampling problems in specific in bug 1019990 comment 16 and earlier.

Thanks. I was going to ask about the inconsistency in the past.

Tracking because it is a new feature and adding an icon should be low risk.

Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #):
Bug 962490 added a search field to about:newtab and landed on 31.  The logo of the currently selected search engine, if available, appears to the left of the search field.

User impact if declined:
On 31, when Yahoo is the currently selected engine, its logo will not appear if the user's display is low-DPI.  about:newtab gracefully handles missing logos, though.  On 32, the logo will appear, but the user may notice a slight flicker due to downsampling the high-DPI logo as described in bug 1009299.

Testing completed (on m-c, etc.):
manual testing, automated testing on m-c

Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky):
very low

Beta patch

Bug 998071 landed on 32 and changed yahoo.xml, which made the m-c/Aurora patch not apply cleanly to Beta.
