Is there a way when the bookmarks syncronize after a new install to syncronize also the icons for bookmarks?

Posted

I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome and I find very hard to access my bookmarks giving the fact that in Chrome I had the possibility so synchronize my bookmarks on a new device including their icons on the toolbar. All my bookmarks are arranged by icons to save space on the bookmark toolbar so in Firefox after synchronizations I only see that globe or whatever it is as a icon for bookmarks and to get the icons I have to access all the links.

you can simply visit the bookmark and it will re-generate immediately.

yeah, i can do that and I can go back to 1994 as well....The point is to evolve and copy things from someone who does it better then you...not to play dumb and remove useful features.

Anyway my request was about something that can do that automatically not something from stone age. Thanks for being so helpful anyway.

Thanks but that's the same thing as accessing the links one by one.
