The icons of the blog posts that I visit do not change to show my visit. eg. I used to be able to see the orange blogger symbol when I visited that blog post.
I subscribe to blogs via RSS (whatever that means) and new blog posts show up in my bookmark menu ....... they show up with a grey unassuming icon at the beginning of the blog post bookmark.
Months ago the appearance of the bookmarks would "change" when I visited the post ..... eg. for blogger posts the icon would turn into the traditional orange blogger symbol.
But for many many months now the icons don't change with the visit and it's getting difficult to remember if I've visited that blog post or not by looking at the bookmark itself.
How can I get the bookmark to update/refresh when I visit a blog post?

I see a faded RSS feed icon for live bookmark items that turn into the website's favicon after having visited the link.
There may be a problem with the favicons if you get the generic default icon instead of the website's favicon.
You can try to repair the places database with this extension:
You can to remove all stored data from that domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry (Show All History or History sidebar) to see if that will reset the favicon if the above posted steps didn't help.
Using "Forget About This Site" will remove everything from that domain like bookmarks, cookies, passwords, cache, history, and exceptions, so be cautious if you need to keep passwords or other data from that site.
You can't recover from that "forget" unless you have a backup of the affected files.
It doesn't have any lasting effect, so if you revisit such a 'forgotten' website then data from that website will be saved once again.
Thanks for the suggestion - I did the top half of your suggestions ....... after my heart skipped many beats after no bookmarks and endless "unresponsive script" messages ..... and finally the bookmarks were reinstalled.
However it didn't help ....... (maybe with a bookmark or two, but there were still bookmarks that didn't change icons ........)
I don't want to try your last suggestion ........ too scared I'll stuff it up!!
