Firefox Favicons Disappear After Update

Post by LLS » Mon Jun 04, 2018 7:03 am

Mint 18.1 Xfce
Firefox 60

Yesterday I ran some updates and that included updating to Firefox 60
What I now notice is that some of the little favicons in my bookmarks are missing and replaced by a generic symbol. I've tried revisiting those sites and it loads the favicon but then when I close firefox and restart again they are gone.

Any thoughts on how to fix this annoying little problem?

Enter

Code: Select all

about:config
in the FF URL textbox, then search for "favicon".

I dislike favicons and have set these to false:
browser.chrome.favicons
browser.shell.shortcutFavicons
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!

I have them set to True but that doesnt seem to change anything.
Strangely its only some favicons that dont load!
