I use the "drag favicon onto bookmark toolbar" approach to bookmarking, so I am upset about this.
If I'm bookmarking something on the toolbar I always drag the tab onto the toolbar. If I'm bookmarking it to a specific place, I just click the bookmark star and file it where i want it.

My mistake. Thought the star was the favicon. Guess I'm not up on their terminology. Anyway, it won't bother me as long as it's still on the tabs. Should still be dead simple to bookmark something. I usually just click the star icon anyway.

This is gonna be a major pain in the ass if this also removes the favicons from the tabs.. which I really hope it won't.

Reading the actual news source, it only talks about the address icon, which I can sorta understand. Currently it add's a huge bloat-button-like-thing when it's http's and that is really pointless. It should be a simple ON or OFF icon. So yeah. No panic after all ;p

It won't remove them from the tabs.
I kind of hate them on the address bar for a few reasons, but I find it amusing they're disappearing because people are savvy enough to look for the secure logo but dumb enough to mistake a favicon for one...

Is there some way to differentiate a favicon made to look like a padlock from the actual padlock icon? Other than looking at the address itself, I mean.

Yeah, I guess it's kind of ugly that there are 2 of the same favicon in such close proximity with each other.

Just drag the site icon (to the left of the url) instead, or just right-click->Bookmark.

Besides, I'm sure there will be some add-on available any minute now that puts it back for those that can't live without it. Add-ons are probably the best thing about FF.

I don't see how favicons represent prime estate in the URL bar, seems like a silly move.
