Description

12 years ago
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060615 Minefield/3.0a1 ID:2006061521 [cairo]

repro:
reload this page and look at the favicon in both the location bar as in the tab

result:
it changes from Mozilla to throbber to generic to Mozilla

expected:
change from throbber to Mozilla.
don't display the generic favicon untill it is clear the site you look at doesn't have one

Options: 
1.show the throbber until the final favicon (generic or from site) can be painted
2.show an empty space until the final favicon (generic or from site) can be painted

Option 2 is probably the more correct one of the 2

I'm not sure where this should go, location bar or tabbed browsing ?

An odd thing though, I'm not always seeing the same behavior.
In the latest build the sequence is
tab bar:  generic->throbber->mozilla
location bar: generic->mozilla

we still don't need to see the generic one though
