favicons lost on Chrome import

Posted

After importing by bookmarks from Chrome, all the favicons are empty (missing). I added both Restore Favicons and Reload Favicons and cannot find any way to use either of them. Can anyone suggest a solution, please?

Firefox (can't find how to see this) Windows 7

As far as I understand the favicons are not imported, however there is an addons.mozilla.org called favicons reloader as you mentioned. They are stored as BLOB data in the places.sqlite database file.

Places maintenance is also an addons.mozilla.org that restores corrupt places file.
