This is an engineering counterpart to bug 960940, which describes the user experience decision behind this behavior.

Currently, for images larger than pref (hereafter MS) and for PDFs with no available domain favicon, no image is shown in Firefox tabs.  

This is not useful to users and cannot distinguish one tab with an image or PDF from another.  Instead, let's show in the tab an MS-sized rectangle out of the top left corner of PDFs and images larger than MS and show that as a preview on the tab.  

Acceptance Criteria:
1. Favicon is shown on tabs with images and PDFs larger than pref, which is cut from the top left corner of the image or PDF if no domain favicon is available
2. Stretch Goal: Cut image from top right if PDF is written in RTL language
Note: Bug 988687 covers preview of images smaller than pref
Depends on: 960940
