I want to assign and change bookmark icons on my bookmark toolbar

Some websites automatically assign an icon when I add them to my bookmark bar. For brevity sake, I delete the description so I can have more bookmarks lined up across the top of the browser page. Other websites do not generate an icon (its an icon of a blank page, a generic default setting I suppose). I want to be able to assign an icon for my bookmarks that do not have a unique icon.

If you want to have a less crowded Bookmarks Toolbar then I don't think that you can assign icons.

However you can create folders to put bookmarks in. That way, you can still put in a description if you want to, without having to give up Toolbar space. To create a folder:

1. Right-click the Toolbar

2. Select the 'New Folder...' option (near the top)

3. Fill in the name (and description if you wish)

4. Click 'Add'


  • You can now add bookmarks to that folder by draging and droping them onto it
  • You can edit a folder by right-clicking on it and selecting 'Properties...', changing it to how you want it and clicking 'Save'

If this was the answer you were looking for, please click 'Solved' -- Thanks.

It's not the answer I was hoping for, but it did provide an alternative solution for managing my bookmarks. It also confirmed that apparently, at this time, Firefox does not have an option to access the icon for the user to change. - Thanks
