Notes:
"Remove this from your Reading List" has also an awkward placement, three small Close buttons are displayed instead of the desired one.

That the page's throbber is being used as a preview image is bug 1146348. We just shouldn't be doing that. 

But I'm going to mutate this bug -- if we end up using a GIF as the preview image, having it animate in the sidebar is a little lolwat.

Probably need to have a load listener on the image to call .stop(). Bug 653035 would be nice here too...

Uhh, that's weird. And on OS X I actually get two tiny close buttons (well, 2 images within a button) stacked vertically. Sounds like bug 1149136, let's move this part there.
