I had icons for all bookmarks in my other browser, so how do I get them all to appear in the Mozilla bookmark toolbar alongside the name?
I like the icons alongside the bookmark name. It appears that when the bookmark connects, some of the icons get automatically imported - e.g. Google, while others do not, e.g. Southwest Airlines. All of my bookmarks had icons in IE, so I assumed Mozilla would pick them up also. Is this a problem with the bookmarked website exporting the icon to Mozilla, or Mozilla polling the website to obtain the icon to display on the toolbar?

You would have to click each bookmark to visit the link to make Firefox retrieve the favicon.
You can look at this extension:
- Favicon Restorer: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/favicon-restorer/
No change in my bookmark toolbar icons, using the add-on above. Again, most of my bookmarks in Firefox have the icon, but others, e.g. Southwest Airlines, Comerica Bank (i.e. large companies that I'd expect Firefox to grab the icons). Clearly IE does something different than firefox to import the icon, otherwise they'd be the same across theboard.

opening a new tab and loading it manually solved the problem - although sometimes the bookmark showed up in the unsorted folder rather than in the toolbar - but just drag and drop onto the toolbar selection. Seems to be fixed now. Thanks
