Hey all,

I've been more and more bothered for the last few weeks by the newtab intro's use of the Whimsycorn to introduce Sponsored Tiles, because selling advertising space in Firefox doesn't seem particularly whimsical to me.  Would you mind changing it to, say, the single-color Firefox image instead?

(The thing that pushed me over the edge was someone asking me on Twitter whether I was responsible for putting the Whimsycorn in the attached image.  I really wasn't, and that made it seem like a bit too much brand-dilution for my taste.)

Thanks!
Looks like bug 1183932 will be removing the whimsycorn.
Depends on: 1183932
