error pages should include user-recognizable element (img, text, color)


(Firefox :: General, enhancement)

As error pages replace dialogs, the line between browser-officially-provided and site-provided content blurs.  In order for the user to verify that the browser sandbox presented the content, the user could register something specific to them (a piece of text, an image, a color) that would be presented in the content of the error page for verification.

I think something similar could be done easily with a user chrome CSS override, but it'd be nice to be part of the UI proper, of course.
