Do you mean the thumbnails on the New Tab page (about:newtab)?

Those are for now stored in the cache, but will move to their own thumbnails folder in future Firefox versions.

No I mean the RSS feed/livebookmarks thumbnails. A little icon that's changes if you visited a page.

Do you mean the visited state of live feed items?

If you clear the browsing history then Firefox has no way to tell that you visited and read a specific feed item.
It is the same as with visiting (bookmark) link, as long as they are in the history you should see them changing.


Can you attach a screenshot?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.

That's the problem, in version 12 and older it changed the little icon, so I knew which live feed I have already visited, even if I cleared my private data. Since version 13 it removes the little icon.

Added a picture. (In grey pages I've visisted, in orange new pages.)

You should still see this change in Firefox 13 even after closing and starting Firefox.

Which item are you clearing via Clear Recent History?


Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

And that's the problem, I want it to be like the older versions. I don't want Firefox to turn the grey icons back to orange. So how can I fix this? I can't find it in the settings, so maybe in about:config?

You have to keep the history if you do not want to have the icons reverting to unvisited state.
