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.

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.

Shouldn't bug 260500 be listed here ?  It has important consequences for the implementation of the 
favicon feature.
