This will make shortcuts blend nicely with the rest of icons, and make better use of the provided high resolution icons where present. Current favicon-in-a-button style could be still used when the website doesn't provide a high resolution icon.
Do you have a screenshot of how it current looks?
It was for another bug, but here's more or less how they look currently in different versions: https://bug884848.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=764781
Hmm not sure what the issue is. I created a transparent .png for the homescreen/launcher icon. It seems to be adding in a background behind the icon? Here's some documentation: http://developer.android.com/design/style/iconography.html#launcher
Yes, it currently adds a background i.e. puts the provided icon in a button. My suggestion is to stop doing that, and use the app-provided icon without further modifications.
Created attachment 767841 [details] [diff] [review] Patch You ok with this mfinkle? I thought at one point we wanted to emphasize these are "bookmarks" and not "apps", but I could be remembering wrong. We should use apple-touch-icon as well, but that will require more work updating our favicon db to handle storing multiple icons (or at least the urls for multiple icons) for a single site.

Comment on attachment 767841 [details] [diff] [review] Patch The patch itself looks fine, but I think we need get Ian to buy into this idea. Some screenshots showing the difference might be useful.

If we can get bigger and better looking icons, we should. Some screenshots would be nice, though.
