This likely wasn't intentional on our part, but it looks like favicons in the tabstrip are allowed to animate. This is super distracting, and doesn't really provide users with any value. Example: http://news.softpedia.com/
Another example: about:robots ;) Not sure how to display a still frame of an animated image. I know window.stop() stops the animation, but I haven't been able to decipher the content and docshell code to see how it does that. Would ignoring the animated favicon entirely be too aggressive?
How would Firefox know which frame to show the user? On softpedia it seems the correct frame (first or last) would work to show the user the 'S' but what about on other sites where the animation might first show nothing and then end with the logo or vice verse.
