+ - Firefox Kills Favicons->

afabbro writes: "Favicons may seem harmless enough, but according to Mozilla, they can be pretty dangerous. Some sites set their favicon to a padlock. This behavior can trick users in to thinking that a site is using a secure connection when on an unsecured connection. Mozilla's solution is to drop favicons from Firefox altogether."
