Favicon not updated when going back/forward in tab with bfcache/fastback
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050504 Firefox/1.0+ after landing of bug 274784 browser.sessionhistory.max_viewers 20 1. New Profile, open firefox. 2. Open "Getting Started" bookmark into a new tab (middle click). Note the firefox favicon. 3. Go to www.neowin.net in the same tab. Note the neowin favicon 4. Click back. Note that the neowin favicon is now shown on the page that should display the firefox favicon.
I assume we need some way of saving the last validated icon into bfcache? Hopefully this will allow us to move some icon handling out of tabbrowser, thus fixing a couple of the other favicon bugs out there ;-)

I'm seeing something similar. I was viewing a blog, entered a search item in the search bar, went to Google, then selected a search item to view. I then went back to the blog page I was viewing. The icon in the tab was now the icon of the search item page. It hasn't changed in the bookmarks, only on the tab. I have the bfcache enabled.

Can bug owner, or someone with privs, set OS->ALL And I hope this blocks 1.1: this bug is too noticeable to go in a 1.1 release.
why not to add gBrowser.loadFavIcon(gBrowser.currentURI, "image", gBrowser.selectedTab); to BrowserBack and BrowserForward functions

The Live Bookmarks icon also suffers from the problem (Bug 297205). Therefore, the fix should involve a proper notification mechanism, rather than the kludge suggested in Comment 7. <speculation>There might be other parts of the browser that are similarly out of sync, possibly opening the way towards a phishing exploit.</speculation>
Summary: Favicon not updated when going back/forward in tab → Favicon not updated when going back/forward in tab with bfcache/fastback
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050616 Firefox/1.0+ ID:2005061606 Since (i think) the landing of bug 292971, this bug now appears to WFM. The tabbar's site favicon now matches the site it is showing, even with bfcache enabled.
Haven't tested Live Bookmarks but also WFM... Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050616 Firefox/1.0+

Not sure if I should open a new bug on this. The favicon's behavior is still not consistent. Half of the time, when you click on a link, you see the favicon rapidly switching between the site's and the bookmark's once, while loading. Also, if you open a new tab, and then close it, the favicon isn't updated, and falls back to the bookmark's icon.
