Bug Description

When selecting a result in the bookmarks listing, it would be very nice to have the bookmark's favicon displayed instead of the HTML file image.

Unfortunately, this would look horrendous because favicons are very, very
small and will not scale.

How about a small icon, on the buttom-right hand corner of the HTML page image? Just so it's identifiable.

Showing the favicon on top of the default html icon could technically be possible. I'm not familiar at all with the way firefox stores bookmarks, but if the favicon is stored locally (ie, we don't have to query the internet to retrieve it) this wouldn't be so hard.

The branch linked by Félix seems to do the trick for me.
