Favicons


[link to this post]
 
Running XP, just updated to FF8 and lost quite a number of bookmark favicons. Still there on my laptop running FF v7. Tried deleting and reinstalling bookmarks but no go.

Google suggest it's not an unknown problem, anyone here found a solution? smile

Favicons are still not saved with backups. Just open all your bookmarks at once to fix.

K, well export as json and then import again, and then load them all.

Thanks again, tried that too but no good!

I have logged a comment on support.mozilla.com as I am not alone with this anomaly apparently frown

Have you tried an add on?
eg. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bookm...

A bottle of white, a bottle of red
Perhaps a bottle of rosé instead.

I thought it was me.

I leave update of FF until they have been around abd bugs like that sorted. So, when it offered an update to FF7 which I accepted (fed up with the nag prompt), I was a little peeved when it installed FF8 which have been released about 1 hour before!

My bookmarks file has dozens of blank squares.

Okay, then rebuild your profile.
- Create a firefox shortcut on your desktop. Right-click > properties. At the end of the text in 'Target' add -p then click ok.
- Launch the shortcut and create new profile (give it a memerorable name), then launch the new profile. Close the resulting window as soon as it opens.
- Then open an Explorer window and copy-paste the following into folder location bar: %APPDATA%/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles
- Go into the old default directory and ctrl-select then copy the following files: extensions (directory), cert8.db, cookies.sqlite, downloads.sqlite, formhistory.sqlite, key3.db, permissions.sqlite, places.sqlite and signons.sqlite
- Go up a directory level and then into the new profle you created and paste/overwrite all the files.
- Launch firefox as usual and then import all your bookmarks as a backup.
