#33855 assigned defect

Don't use site's icon as window icon in Windows when in private browsing mode

When the browser is in site-specific browser mode the app browser icon is set to the website's favicon. This icon presumably is cached somewhere by the operating syste, so we should not expose the icon in this fashion when in private browsing mode.

This mode can be accessed when:

  • browser.ssb.enabled = true

This is only an issue if someone flips the hidden pref browser.ssb.enabled to true. The tracking bug for the site-specific browsing feature is:

If we are worried about someone playing with this loaded gun we could stub out the applyOSIntegration() function in browser/components/ssb/WindowsSupport.jsm but it seems okay to ignore this for now.
