The page displayed by Bug 1421707's mechanism for blocking about pages is meant to be more of a placeholder than a final UI. This bug addresses updating that UI.

This is the icon to be used. It's a small update provided by Amin from what was in (he will also update the icon on the website with this new one)

Note that there's already a similar icon in the tree, used to show the "deceptive website" block page:

In order to avoid duplication, we should update that icon with this more modern one that was designed as part of the Photon effort.

Note that the existing icon has a white color built-in, whereas this new one supports defining the color through css, like so:
FWIW, the aboutNetError page supports providing a custom page title. Right now it's using the default "Problem loading page", but it'd be nice to reuse the "Page Blocked" label. (no need to create a new string for this, you can reuse the same entity as the big "Page Blocked" in the middle of the page)

See here:
Brian Jones provided the following string in the design doc:

"Your organization has blocked access to this page or website."

One thing I just noticed is that the page actually requires two strings: a _short description_ and a _long description_

However, I think this string is clear enough that we don't need to have two different ones. Maybe we can leave the long description blank, and use it to later add support for the sysadmin to provide a custom string.

What do you all think?
