Created attachment 453001 [details] "m" favicon Currently www.mozilla.com serves a red dinosaur favicon. While it would be good for www.mozilla.org, it's doesn't fit www.mozilla.com or Firefox branding. There are no red dinosaur images on w.m.c except the About pages. A gray dinosaur on the footer is hard to spot. It's also difficult to identify w.m.c when users have bookmarked the site. Proposed change: A. use a Firefox icon site-wide; or B. use a Firefox icon for /firefox/ and its sub directories and a generic icon (see attached for example) for the other part of the site. See also: www.mozillamessaging.com have already used a Thunderbird icon site-wide. www.google.com/chrome uses a Chrome icon.
Created attachment 453004 [details] firefox favicon Here's a Firefox favicon used on mozilla.jp/firefox which is converted from the transparent PNG image.
Firefox 4 'nova' redesign replaces Mozilla with Firefox branding. So the favicon should be the Firefox icon.
Summary: Reconsider red dinosaur favicon → Replace the red dinosaur favicon with Firefox icon

As you know, favicons are cashed for long. It can't be overridden even with super reload (Ctrl+Shift+R). Thus it'd be good to replace it *now*.
Done in the nova branch in r76451.
