Bookmarks and history pages imported from Safari do not have favicons.  Icons are an enormous convenience, much easier to scan than page titles.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Safari
2. Create some data to be imported: visit a few websites with favicons and create a few bookmarks of sites with favicons
3. Quit Safari
4. Launch Firefox
5. Import profile from Safari
6. Show Places
7. Select History from Places sidebar
8. Open "From Safari" folder in Bookmarks Menu in Places sidebar
9. Select a bookmark folder within "From Places"; e.g., "News"


Actual Results:  
Default, plain document icons appear next to imported history and bookmark items.

Expected Results:  
Sites' favicons should appear next to imported items.

This is the 20060131 Places build, posted as the 20060128 nightly.

This is doable (and done by Chrome), but not done by both IE and Chrome migrators.
