First-run visit to Top Sites now lists (4) default bookmarks -- they each have a representative Favicon except for about:firefox. Eliminate this silliness.
This should be fixed for real when bug 709250 is fixed.
Depends on: 709250
I initially implemented support for a "default" about favicon in bug 709250, but removed it. There's some options here. Ship a default in Java, or extend the default bookmarks code to support a path to the favicon.

I intend to do the later, but needed bug 709250 to land first. It is now!
Just adding a comment here for comment #1, that this didn't resolve with 709259 (tested Nightly 03/28).

That's because the XHTML does not include a favicon:

Copy the favicon <link> from aboutHome.xhtml or aboutAddons.xhtml

This updates about:firefox to have A favicon, but also updates a bunch of our other about pages to offer high res favicons.

This just adds favicons to our android resources for about:firefox. Favicon is just a copy of favicon32.png. The default bookmarks code will pick it up and use it. Had to do it 5 times for each branding set we have.

This isn't needed for about:home because. Since we load it as our first page, we also load the favicon from the jar file soon after first start (although there is probably a short time where we won't have anything to show).

Simple patch

It took me a while to find it in my heart to feel OK about this patch. But I feel OK about it now.
