Why can I not get the Web Icon for some of my saved Bookmarks

more options

Many of my saved Bookmarks have their correct Web Icons. However many fail to save their Web Icon leaving the Icon blank. The Web Sites in question do have specific Web Icons. I have tried deleting the Bookmarks in question and saving them again without success.

Why can I not get these icons to be saved in the Bookmarks?

URL's for websites where Firefox doesn't save the Favicon??

I would like to be able to view those websites and be able to examine the source code to see what type of file that image is and where it is located on the server. If the image is too big, Firefox isn't going to be able to save it.

No problem here with that TalkTalk website, the favicon image saves immediately when I save it as a bookmark. It uses a conventional favicon.ico image in the root directory

link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="/favicon.ico" /

With Barcalays iBank I can't figure out where the website image in the Location bar is being loaded from.

With Barclaycard, the favicon saves with the new bookmark, even though that image is in a non-standard location.
link rel="shortcut icon" href="assets/images/favicon.ico" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon"

Thank you for your assistance.

Now that I know about “Favicon.ico” and the “Page Info” I can see (work out) why some of the “Web Icons” do not get saved with the bookmark.

Many thanks for your valuable time
