Recenty, some of the icons associated with websites will no longer display, although they always did so in the past

Posted

The small icon that is associated with a website & appears to the left in the address bar when a website loads no longer appears for 6 of my most frequently used websites. This began about a week ago.

Hi,

Please try this: When on any one site do a Ctrl + F5 refresh. This would help bypass the cache contents and pull in fresh content.

There could be a remote possibility that the websites are working / changing their favicons. Are the websites related? Can you please post a link. Someone would be able to definitely help you.

No, the sites aren't related. Here's one that always showed an icon: http://www.brewingnews.com/yankeebrew/

In addition to Firefox the icon doesn't seem to appear in IE and Google Chrome at least for this particular site. Please also see this.

OK, thanks. Looks like about 8 websites I regularly use no longer have icons that will display. They all disappeared on the same day recently.

Same thing happened to me a few days ago - 6 of my 30 or so bookmarks suddenly showed blank icons. Hope we get an answer. Fortunately the access to the 6 websites still works.
