Details

The favicon services matches by page URL. So if you wquery for a page, and it's not been seen, then it won't give a favicon - even if it knows of favicons for other pages on that domain. We should add a fallback, so that it returns a favicon for that domain if the requested page URL isn't in the DB.
I *think* the moz-anno protocol handler can just create a HTTP channel and return that. So it shouldn't be too difficult in that respect.

I'm hoping it'll be enough to just request /favicon.ico

Er, wrong bug, ignore comment 1 (see bug 573638).

This just needs to lookup alternate entries for the same domain.

This is pretty much fixed when there is a root icon.
