bookmarks appear as globe

Posted

Before installing Firefox version 62, all my bookmarks had icons from their sites. Also, on the search bar, when I type a letter, a drop down of possible sites I have bookmarked would appear and I can pick and choose. Now, after updating to version 62, all my bookmarks appear as gray globe. I've tried every solution posted on your site to no avail. I want a solution to this problem a.s.a.p. I should've never updated to version 62.

You only need to click a bookmark to open this bookmark in a tab to make Firefox retrieve the favicon.

If this still doesn't work then check for issues with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history).

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history) in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page
    in case errors are reported close and restart Firefox and retry
