Hi negativepitch42, I think you mean the Bookmarks Toolbar. Firefox should add the icon automatically if it's a final destination.

Does your Firefox store history normally?

If it's an address that redirects, Firefox may not be able to associate the icon to the bookmark. In that case, it would be simplest to update the bookmark to the final address.

Otherwise, there are add-ons that let you change an icon, but I haven't tested any of them myself.
