The auto-show is still in development over in bug 102832. Good places to try it out are Bugzilla buglists, the W3C, htmlhelp.com and many machine-generated manuals or documents, such as the GNU Make manual."

That's exactly what it's for. <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32087>

It's basically MS's favicon feature with 2 important improvements:

1) It's optional for the user, so somebody who doesn't want servers to be able to track which pages he/she has bookmarked can turn it off.

2) The server can specify where the icon file is, or if there isn't one. So servers don't get bombarded by requests for a nonexistent "favicon.ico" file.
