Please explain more completely.
Specifically, what type of format are you using for "saving bookmarks to a file"?
Are you doing export in bookmarks.html format? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/export-firefox-bookmarks-to-backup-or-transfer
Or are you dealing with a JSON / JSONLZ4 format file? the bookmarksbackup format that Firefox uses to automatically backup the users bookmarks https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-bookmarks-from-backup-or-move-them
Both exporting as an HTML file or using the backup option to generate a JSON file should preserve the icons for your bookmarks.
However, simply copying the
places.sqlite file from your Firefox profile folder will not. The
favicons.sqlite file holds that data.
Athraithe ag Wesley Branton ar
export in bookmarks.html has always included the favicon data (website images).
View the saved bookmarks.html file and "search" for ICON.
This is the tag for that data ICON="data:image/png;base64, .......................... very long string of alpha/numeric data for each favicon that is present. And that data takes up a lot of room - like well over 10 times as much data as the URL and 'name' for each bookmark.

Yes, exactly. When exporting Firefox bookmarks to a html-file is it so that saving time to time, some or much small icons are missing, if I´m reimporting and opening my bookmarks.

Dear Firefox team, please fix that all icons from Firefox bookmarks will be saved into exported html file. Thanks in advance.
