[B2G] [Browser] Camera placeholder icons do not line up with video suggestions

When a list of suggested videos fail to load their preview pictures, the placeholder camera icons will be too large for the list and run into multiple search suggestions.

Repro Steps:
1) Update a Tarako to BuildID: 20140418014001
2) Launch the Browser app and navigate to
3) Select a video and observe the video previews in the Suggested Videos section.
4) If the previews do not show the camera placeholder icon, tap one of the suggested videos and observe the suggested videos for that video.
5) If the previews show the camera placeholder icon, observe how well the icons line up with the video entries.

The camera icons appear to be slightly larger than the preview area allows, causing the icons to run into multiple videos.

The camera icons are the same size as the preview area, so each suggested video has their own camera placeholder icon.

I'm having a hard time finding any videos with the placeholder icon any more. I know I used to be able to see them, but I've been browsing around for 20 minutes and I haven't seen a single placeholder video.

Perhaps YT made server side changes which give every video a preview graphic?

I will ask them about it.

Reproduction steps which include a video to search for which shows the placeholder graphic would also be useful.

There was no one video that always reproed the bug.  Usually selecting a suggested video a few times quickly would get the bug to repro.

I can't reproduce this after YT released their new layout. Please re-open if reliable STR are found.
