I don't want my browser to display such icons. I looked through tools->options... and a few other places, and found no easy way to turn off the icon search. This is one feature of IE that I could do without. At least give me a way to turn it off. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to any website, watch Firefox attempt to find favicon.ico. 2. Try and turn off favicon.ico search in tools->options... Actual Results: I found no way to turn off favicon search. Expected Results: Let me turn off the search and display of favicons.
This is something that's too obscure for users to wrap their heads around. Use about:config and filter on favicon, but this doesn't need UI.

I'm a user, and I managed to figure out that I don't like, or want, favicons. How exactly am I supposed to figure out what I need to change in about:config to get them to go away?
