Currently the Favicon for empty entries in the "Favorite Sites" area look like tiny checkboxes; they're somewhat indistinguishable.

Ian/Madhava, what say you?

Naoki, nope. Bug 705732 is more of a performance improvement.

Ian/Madhava, we should be prepared for the cases where the website screenshot is not available for some reason. We need a funny placeholder image for those cases.
Thanks Lucas, I will take a look.

FYI on a related note, I filed a bug yesterday about making website thumbnail placeholders too, for when screenshots aren't available (bug 706636)

We have a placeholder thumbnail image and we're using it now, aren't we? We're no longer scaling up favicons here.

Patryk's also created a bug to use higher res favicons on our internal pages and for external pages with no favicon.

Given that, I'm moving this to "fixed".
