A shortcut icon for a site with framed layout should be declared in the main page
containing the <FRAMESET>, right?  So did I in our project's homepage (URL
above), and the icon appeared correctly in the location line.  And when I loaded
the page in a tabbed window, the icon appeared in the tab too.  Everything nice
so far.

Unfortunately, a click on a HREF changing the contents of one frame, has driven
the icon away from the tab, while it was still present in the location line. And
jumping between the tabs drops the icon comletely.

The naive workaround - inserting an identical <link> in all pages ever loaded
into the frame - didn't lead to success, as the <link> elements seem to be
completely ignored in the frames.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new tabbed window 
2. Load a page with a shortcut icon and frames in it, such as mentioned above
(see URL) or just the mozilla bug submission page (it has an <IFRAME>)
3. Follow an arbitrary link to another page
4. Switch to another tab and then back to this one.

Actual Results:  
After step 3, the icon in the tab disappeared, replaced by the standard book (is
this actually a book?) symbol.

After step 4, the same happens to the icon in the location line

Expected Results:  
The icons should not be changed.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not

This bug is still there, both in mozilla 1.7.10 and firefox 1.0.6
The only difference between the programs is in the appearance: while mozilla
replaces the icon by the standard grey bookmark image, firefox takes the favicon
from the neighbor tab (which is yet more confusing, as you get a web site
presented with someone else's logo!)
