Why don't my bookmarks show Favicons?

The title should explain it sufficiently, but the behavior that I expected was for Firefox to automatically pull favicons from websites or at least allow that to be done manually. It appears that this does not happen. Has this been a feature that was removed, a bug, something on my computer, or something else? Basic Google searches didn't reveal much but a couple of addons that can do this process manually, but I am hoping to avoid this (and some of them no longer work).

Visiting websites doesn't cause the favicons to reload, and deleting and readding the bookmark doesn't work.

Yes, the addresses for the bookmarks are correct including the http(s):// prefix

Attached full info about my browser, but it's on Win 10 running Firefox 53.0.3 64 bit version with some extensions.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I suffered a hard drive crash and had it replaced. I was able to save the most important of my data from my old hard drive, but I did not think to try to save my Firefox bookmarks. I did not have a Sync account before the crash happened.

Is there any way at all to recover the bookmarks from before the crash?

Note: I am using a 2009 iMac with a brand-new hard drive and running OS X Mavericks.

All my favorites from internet explorer will not transfer over to firefox. I've tried all the suggestions already:

  • importing from internet explorer

Only half of my favorites are moved over to firefox. Very frustrating.

My FF just updated itself today. I only have my address bar and have gotten my Roboform toolbar back. I can open them from the bookmark icon but I want to add the toolbar that lets me open my bookmarks from there and I can't even find the dropdown that lets me see what toolbars are active. Whew this 30.0 has caused me headaches today! Thanks in advance.

How do I search a specific bookmark? No, not "sort" bookmarks to find it (I don't know in which of the many folders it is located). I need some kind of search field, or similar, where I type words in the name of the bookmark. This existed in FF28 but I can't find it in 29.

Thank you!

I'm using Firefox 34.0.5 and recently discovered that I can't add new bookmarks. A keyboard <Ctrl>-D does nothing. if i click the Star to make a bookmark, I see the animation of the star flying up and over to the bookmark icon and turn blue in the process. But after the animation is over, the star is uncolored and no bookmark appears in the "Unsorted" or any other bookmark folder.

I have "Reset" Firefox via the Help menu's "Restart with Add-ons Disabled..." option, but that did not help. I do not use any "bookmark" add-ons.

My PC runs Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. It has 32GB of memory and a 256GB SSD as the main boot drive (C).

Is there a solution for my problem?

I had my firefox display my bookmark bar under the url bar. Its set to show, but none of the bookmarks are showing up anymore. It's just an empty bar. Even in safe mode it's an empty bar. I used to have my frequently used url's on there, but they recently disappeared. Now I'm left with an empty bar with no use, and i was wondering if I could get it back. Below I have linked to the picture of what my status bar looks like. https://www.dropbox.com/s/609pci1oz4bwcal/Firefox%20bookmarks.PNG?dl=0 Any help would be appreciated
