sketch of using tab icons

At some point, it would be great to have actual tab favicons (or thumbnails!) synced to the tabs list through Weave.  In the meantime, though, there's value to having some images in the favicon positions anyway -- they break up the otherwise text-only page and provide eye-drawing "bullets" so that the list is easier to understand.

Instead of the weave/cloud icons there at present, I'd suggest using icons that reinforce the idea that each of these rows represents a tab.  See attachment -- just a sketch of what the icon could be.  (we're also looking to replace the "new tab" button in fennec with something that looks more like a tab - we could use the same visual)

Use the new tab icon for items in the remote tab page.

light coloured tab favicon for page

This is a replacement favicon for the whole page, whereas the current dark ones are correct for each tab row on the page.  I.e. this one goes in the site button next to the URL bar.

Currently it looks like this:
