The new win7 taskbar jump list supports custom tasks. Currently four tasks are supported in the working patch, three of which we hope to enable by default for the release: open new window open new tab private browsing mode profile manager private browsing mode and profile manager may be hidden by default due to some limitations in launching them when there are running instances, but custom icons for each would still be nice. private browsing we deffinitely be enabled by default at some point. These icons would most likely be embedded in firefox.exe. They should support the same color depths and resolutions as as the default firefox and firefox document icons.
Any updates on this? Also Chrome, Opera and IE8+ also use favicons for recently/frequent visited sites, Firefox uses default html-icon.
nvm, just discovered Bug 549472
We don't have 'profiles' anymore. The current tasks are open new window open new tab enter private browsing
(In reply to comment #3) > nvm, just discovered Bug 549472 I had hoped to get that done for the release, but I'm not sure I will. (We have a lot of cleanup work to do.)
Should there be another task defined for this for a graphic designer to make the custom images? I can do the rest for this task once I know which images to use.

Aww, you guys don't do anything clever with extracting icons out of theme PNGs at build time. That's what Tb does (bug 659788).
