Icons should be square. <icon>/icon.jpg</icon>" It would be great if this was recognised and the icon loaded and used to label the feed parent item in the bookmarks side bar. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Locate or create an ATOM feed file with a correct icon element. 2. Add the feed as a live bookmark in Firefox. 3. Allow the feed to be accessed and parsed. Actual Results: No icon was shown. Expected Results: the relevant module should have parsed the ATOM file and understood that a square icon was available to enhance the representation of the feed in UI elements, such as the bookmarks folder tree. The ATOM specification does not specify a encoding or format for the icon and gives a JPEG file name in an example. The specification does state that icons "should" be square. As a consequence some image processing / validation may be required - if not already available.

I think the support to <atom:icon> SHOULD NOT be limited to Atom feeds. When it presents in an RSS feed, the icon should be displayed too. (I think <atom:icon> is equal to <link rel="icon">)
yes, we will support this in Firefox 3
The target milestone Firefox 3 alpha4 is missed.
