This issue is split off bug 148797.

From Bug 148797 Comment #11 (by Adam Lock):

I might open a new bug to deal with <link> tags with a rel value specifying
shortcut/icon. This is something else we could be saving and should be easy
enough to do.

From Bug 148797 Comment #25 (by me):

Adam, just came to my mind when seeing this checkin in bonsai: what about <link
rel="icon" ...> (or "shortcut icon")?
Shouldn't that be saved with the page as well?

Enough said. Would be a nice thing to do, IMHO.

Note to self, various references to the not-very-standard-at-all definitions of
shortcut/icon rel types:
bug 32087

My thoughts are any <link> containing "icon" in its rel attribute and an href
will be fixed up. It is possible that some websites might serve a bogus mimetype
for .ico, it may or may not be possible to coerce the correct behaviour by using
type specified in the <link>

Boris, this is one of those occasions I emailed you about where sniffing the
mime type from the stream might be useful. I discovered during testing of this
feature (which was just adding an extra few lines to the persist object) that
some sites don't send the proper mimetype with the icon. This means the persist
object screws up the file extension when it saves it.
