Tangent: we currently have a bug where the mixed content warning is not 
issued if a favicon was downloaded in an insecure context, cached, and 
then displayed in a secure context. In practice this means you get a 
mixed content warning only the first time you visit a secure website 
with an insecure favicon, but never again subsequently, hiding the bug 
from website developers. That's bad!
