Activity stream should have a filter for pretty (rich icon) tiles only
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:63.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/63.0 Build ID: 20180724223402 Steps to reproduce: I opened a new tab Actual results: I saw really ugly tiles (the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th). Second row has also some ugly ones (1st, 2nd) Expected results: I expect either to filter out these ugly tiles by default or have some config option to filter them out. I have to manually remove them. If you look for example at Trello, Mozilla, HipChat, Reddit, Mastodon, Glitch, Hooktube, CanIUse, DigitalOcean they all look really nice. I expect only these pretty tiles to be shown and all the other ones to be filtered out.
Summary: Activity stream should have a filter for pretty tiles only → Activity stream should have a filter for pretty (rich icon) tiles only
Two things that I've noticed trying to reproduce this: We don't have Netflix in our tippytop database and if you add a google search result as a tippytop it will fetch a screenshot and not replace with the high quality tippytop result until you restart the browser.

That's interesting (about Netflix); I definitely used to have a Netflix rich icon without me manually altering anything but they must have updated their icons at some point because I don't have one now. It does seem like a good candidate for Tippytop though.
Can this be an easy bug for a new contributor? Since it bothers me, it would be nice if I could contribute. I'm guessing all the changes should be self contained on this page https://github.com/mozilla/activity-stream , right? I think it should be just a filter for sites with a tippytop icon, right?
