Why are bookmarks pinned from Firefox android less attractive than ones pinned from stock browser

I want to pin the BBC weather mobile site to my home screen for quick access.

http://m.bbc.co.uk/weather/2643743

If I do this from within Firefox then I get an unattractive, generic bookmark symbol on the home screen. It works but doesn't look nice.

If I do the same thing from the stock browser the generic bookmark symbol doesn't appear. The symbol is a BBC logo pulled from the website.

Why is this? Is it a bug?

Hi eddyc,

I was able to replicate the same behavior you described. I'm not sure if this is a bug, or if there is a reason behind it, so I opened a bug which can be tracked here. I hope this helps.

Thanks!! - Ralph
