Favicon's Not Loading

Only effects certain websites, and only on my laptop, not my desktop. Most sites are fine. Seems to have occurred when I bookmarked a site on my desktop, and then my laptop synced and got screwed up. Not quite sure though.

For example, Wolfram Alpha's website does not display the favicon:

   -  there is no favicon in the tab
   -  when bookmarked there is no favicon

Deleting browsing data doesn't fix it. Deleting places.sqlite doesn't fix it. Refreshing the page doesn't fix it. Restarting my computer doesn't fix it.

I don't want to do a reinstall, if anything, because I shouldn't have to.

I'm only annoyed by this because I use the favicons (without text next to them) as links in the bookmarks bar. I can't do this if I don't know what the favicon is, and thus don't know what the website is.

A video at a Web site where I have often accessed videos now tells me the video is inaccessible because of "privacy and security settings." I don't think I have changed the settings since the last time I watched a video. In any case I have not been able to find the problem. I have tried the options for cookie settings without fixing the problem. What should the settings be?

I installed the umatrix add-on, but it doesn't show in the top right with the rest of them. It is clearly installed, and it also shows in the sidebar, but I can not use it properly from there. I would like to know how i put the icon back to the top right corner, so I can access it from there. It has been there before, but it suddenly disappeared. I can't remember doing anything thats related with add-ons around the time it disappeared. so I have no clue what caused this.

Kind regards

The question is all in the above. I am sick of the URL in the footer cutting off halfway across the page. I previously used Internet Explorer which printed almost the full width of the footer and almost always this was enough to print the whole URL. I would like to see this in Firefox.
