Fennec native uses 32x32px favicons when the site provides them. Otherwise we scale the icon up. This tends to look poor. It would be nice if Mozilla.org properties had favicons that looked great.

Who can provide this icon? Do any of our website have it yet?

Created attachment 623474 [details] 32x32px firefox logo.png The big size version (281x297 px) is here: http://www.mozilla.org/img/covehead/firefox/brand-toolkit/identity-logo-firefox.png You can crop it to a square and resize it to 32x32 px.
I noticed this on http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile as well, on Galaxy Nexus with Firefox Beta 14.0.
I created a new ICO file containing both the 16x16 icon as well as the 32x32 icon. I tested the new favicon on an Android phone running the latest Firefox Beta from the marketplace and found it was still using the 16x16 icon. As the 16x16 icon has been very specifically modified to look good at that resolution I believe it should be served for browsers that use that resolution favicon, however we can also just remove the 16x16 variant and only have the 32x32 version but this will not look as good (i.e. will be squashed) on browsers expecting a smaller icon.
Until they fix that issue with Fennec, let's just ship the 32x32 one for simplicity. The only other option I see would be to switch based on user agent detection and I would rather not do that.
