Tracking bug for all issues related to site icons.
More bugs than I expected, although some are RFEs. I'm also seeing some potential dups, so someone with more privileges than me should help out hyatt by shaking these out.
What a mess! I'll try to sort some of it, but I might need some help. It seems that what wee need is a proper dependency structure since most of the problems that people see (even though they are different ones and should not be duped against each other), they all come from a much smaller number of the problems with the underlying implementation (some of them are not yet files as a separate bugs). Once the problems with underlying implementation are files as bugs and marked as dependencies of all those many problems that they cause, things might get a little more organized... Bug 113430 ("favicon caching problem") would probably become a "focus point" - I am planning to make it a dependent bug for all those problems that are caused by improperly cached favicons and make it depend on all the bugs that talk about ways of fixing it.
Removing the verified duplicates for a start. This needs some more cleanup, there are way too many dupes in the dependencies
Bug 113430 is a meta bug for tracking favicon cache-related bugs. This bug, bug 120352, is currently set to depend on a number of cache-related bugs. These bugs are: 109959, 111050, 113021, 113022, 113102, 114824, 117895, 118548, 120304, and 120466. I'm removing all of those bugs from this bug. Most of those bugs are already dependencies for bug 113430. I'll add the others ones to it.
favicons were just removed from the toolbar menus in bug 127349 :-(((
adding self to cc list
Cleaning out duplicates...
In a frames page, when you click a link that changes one of the frames, the site icon drops from the tab (wrong), but remains in the addy bar. All pages have the <link to the icon.
Favicons drop from Bookmarks and Personal Toolbar when the domain bookmarked is a subdomain. To reproduce: 1: bookmark both http://netbank.com and http://secure.netbank.com 2: both bookmarks should have favicons at this point. 3: close firefox 4: open firefox and the netbank.com favicon should be there, but the secure.netbank.com favicon will not.
A patch for a large number of these problems went in for bug 174265, for Firefox on the aviary branch; not sure how/when/if it'll make it to seamonkey.
Adding #262486 to dependency list
Shouldn't bug 260500 be listed here ? It has important consequences for the implementation of the favicon feature.
Adding bug 326896 to deps, but it seems that nobody uses this tracking bug anymore
