New Google Favicon for Firefox Search Bar

GoogleNewFavicon As we all know that Google has been using a new favicon for quite sometimes.  But on our Firefox search bar, the favicon is still that capital "G".  Here is how to make it a new one:
  1. Locate the google.xml file under %Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins.
  2. Open it and locate the line starting with <Image width="16" height="16">.
  3. Change the value of this tag (data:image/x-icon;...) to the text in this file.  
  4. Save it and restart Firefox.
