In Mozilla 0.9.9 build 2002030913, a favicon will be shown in the titlebar or tab if there is no <link rel="icon"...>, as opposed to simply having a favicon.ico in the main directory. In previous builds, it would be shown if there was simply a favicon.ico in the directory. To have it be shown in the bookmarks, I had to enter the favicon.ico's URL, bookmark the page, and reset Mozilla.
"a favicon will [not] be shown"
