"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.

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.

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.
