Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6


From the current ATOM spec:

"icon	Identifies a small image which provides iconic visual identification for
the feed. 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">)
