bookmarks appear as globe
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.
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 31.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:62.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/62.0
its simple, just visit the site and it will go back to the default icon.
about the search bar auto suggestions settings, see this page:
suggestions didn't work. bookmarks are not starred, unable to bring up when i type in the address bar. will try to go back to previous version of firebox. Firefox version 62 is problematic!!
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
