Somewhere between firefox-0.10.1 and firefox-1.0 the support for
favicons in the tabbar vanished completely.

They never worked perfectly: in older versions, they were shown
sometimes and disappeared randomly. But in firefox 1.0 only the
standard bookmark icon is displayed.

Favicons are shown in the bookmark-list and URL bar (but not correctly:
sometimes they are shown, sometimes not (for the same side and the same
session (but different tabs)); I can not detect a rule behind this).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open multiple tabs
2. visit sides with favicons

Actual Results:  
standard bookmark icons appears in the tab

Expected Results:  
the favicon of the side appears in the tab

demonstrates the issue. Every page in the tabs has a favicon; both windows show
the same page: the upper one displays the favicon, the other one not.
I see from your screenshot that you are using a theme other than the default,
possibly with some userChrome.css thrown in, to move the tabbar. If you don't
see the same problem without either of those, please resolve this bug INVALID
and take it up with the theme/userChrome author.

I use the default theme and i have the same problem. 
Sometimes also, a bookmark in the toolbar get a favicon which doesnt belong to
this site. The favicons next to the url location and in the tabs are also
randomly displayed.
