User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.9.0.6) Gecko/2009022823 Firefox/3.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.9.0.6) Gecko/2009022823 Firefox/3.0.6

When opening Edit->Preferences->Applications and selecting an Action a list
of actions pops up. If this list contains URLs for websites, their favicons
are loaded even if browser.chrome.favicons is set to false.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rm -rf .mozilla
2. Set browser.chrome.favicons to false
3. Open Edit->Preferences->Applications
4. Select the "Web Feed" action and view favicons being loaded
Actual Results:  
The favicons are being loaded even if browser.chrome.favicons is set to false.

Expected Results:  
The favicons should not be loaded.

Here is the patch I use:

     // in the template replaced by the URL of the content being handled).
 
-    if (/^https?/.test(uri.scheme))
+    if (/^https?/.test(uri.scheme) && this._prefSvc.getBoolPref("browser.chrome.favicons"))
       return uri.prePath + "/favicon.ico";
 
     return "";
Should be "patch" and not "oatch" ;-)

Don't think so. They talk about expiring, I simply don't want to load
them when the pref setting is off.

I can confirm this bug,
making http requests while setting browser options is not a good idea.

Here is a patch which fixes the problem

This is fine, though I think what would ultimately be better is to figure out how to selectively fetch from the favicon service, but not download otherwise.
