I think this is a bug in the Mozilla build that Phoenix 0.1 is based on. I see
it in the same build on Mozilla too.

Tabs seem fine for me, but the URL bar quite often seems to grow to an amazing
size to accomodate the favicon.ico. I realise that often enough, this is because
the favicon.ico is not a 16x16 icon -- i can see this on some sites, such as
apache.org which seems to be using a 32x32, and somewhere else i went and got a
massive 64x64 icon which stretched my URL bar to an impressive size.

In the same way that long titles being handled badly by Enlightenment under
linux forms a vulnerability (titles longer than say 256 cahrs, which you can do
on a web page, and the browser then puts it in the tilebar, cause major havoc as
E tries to  shorten the title by showing the ends of it with "..." in the
middle), so this forms a "vulnerability" -- i can now have my access to a
website basically "denied" by someone dropping in a giant favicon.ico file.

Would appreciate updates on this.
