It would be nice if, on X11 systems, the favicon was used as the window manager
icon.  E.g., in the gnome-panel window-list applet, there is an icon next to the
window name.  Right now, that is always the Firefox logo.  Instead, that should
be the favicon of the page (if it has one.)

You do this by setting the XWMHints->icon_pixmap in XSetWMHints().

Why its only for linux? In windows it's the same. I think it's in OS-independent code.

This would be an awesome feature, on all operating systems.

Think Pandora, Last.FM, your favorite time tracker for BaseCamp, etc. etc. - having those icons show up in your window manager and system bar/dock/etc. would be incredibly useful, rather than just a whole bunch of Firefox icons, forcing you to read the text to figure out which window is what.

Personally, I'm on Windows, and I use a "minimize to system tray" app, which lets me minimize Firefox (or any other app) to the system tray... Being able to put web-based music players, time trackers, web-based instant messaging services, and probably tons of other services, in your system tray, would be great - you might even consider adding a "minimize to tray" button to the Firefox application window, so that we didn't need additional applications for that...
The Shell Integration code doesn't manage the process icons... not sure what component is best for this so moving over to Firefox -> General.
