Description

11 months ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0
Build ID: 20170705100303

Steps to reproduce:

Prob A) Dragging a URL from address bar into bookmarks will assign a 'favicon' icon based on previous drag into bookmarks.  

To reproduce, create a simple favicon-free html page
e.g. 
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<h1>My First Heading</h1>
<p>My first paragraph.</p>
</body>
</html>

Open page this simple page into a tab. 
In another tab, open some other page (e.g. I used duckduckgo.com)
Drag the 'other page' - click-drag the "i" icon in the address bar - down into the shortcuts bar and release it there. 
Now change to the simple-page tab, and drag it into the shortcut bar. 
The icon assigned to simple-page is the icon of the 'other-page'. 

Other problem (related?)
Problem B) Wrong title on Tab after the event of 'A' above (May have to close the simple-page tab and re-open it?) 
The simple-page's tab has a Title of the "other page"  (in my test case DuckDuckGo)

Problem C) Doing an embedded base64 encoded favicon doesn't seem to be working in nightly.  ie using form: 

<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="data:image/x-icon;base64,AAA.....characters....==" > 

placed in the <Head> section does not seem to be picked up by Nightly, yet works in Safari browser.  





Actual results:

As above A) wrong icon assigned to bookmark B) wrong title on tab C) no favicon picked up from an embedded data <link> tag.
