Expected results:

Firefox Containers has a very limited set of icons to use. In order to solve that, why not let us use Unicode characters as icons instead?

The possibilities are endless:
* As simple as F for Facebook, G for Google
* Use colorless emojis for thousands of color-character combinations OR automatically use a colored emoji's color for the tab stripe
* Use a period, underscore, space to keep it simple/hidden
* Advanced or Asian users (because of hieroglyphs) would not need a container title at all in order to understand the meaning
* Could remove all built-in icons and suggest well-visible icons as a replacement
