HTML5 Custom Homescreen Icon + Mobile Web App

I've been learning HTML5 Game Development, and have a question about Firefox for Android: How would I get a custom icon for a bookmark added to the home screen? It looks like Firefox either uses a favicon, or a default star.

On iOS Safari, I was able to accomplish this using <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="image.png" />, and the functionality seems to carry over to Google Chrome.

I tried using this code for a custom favicon on a specific page: <link rel='shortcut icon' type='image/x-icon' href='favicon.ico' /> but it only works when I view the file directly on the computer. When accessing the page through Apache, there is no favicon.

My other question was about Mobile Web App functionality. In iOS Safari and Google Chrome for Android, adding "apple-mobile-web-app-capable" or "mobile-web-app-capable" lets the webpage run as a fullscreen web app when saved to the homescreen. Firefox just opens it like a normal bookmark.

Any help is appreciated. I'm learning from the book 'HTML5 Game Development for Dummies.'

Hi all, I'm a long-time Firefox Mac user, and I have a question about bookmark and tab icons. I just upgraded to a MacBookPro with Retina display running Yosemite, and now all of my bookmark icons and some of my tab icons are in low res (looks like 16x16). I've searched and searched, but can't figure out how to change the icons to a better res. Superficial issue, sure, but it makes my browser window look kinda ugly. Any suggestions?

Please reference the attached JPEGS. When I switch between tabs, the favicon image repeats behind the text. In some cases, the vertical scrollbar image is messed up, it clears up when I click on it. - Doesn't seem to affect performance, just annoying. Thanks!
