On MacOs Mojave. When I Bookmark new Websites the wrong Favicon shows. Old Bookmarks are correct.

As stated above, no new saved Bookmarks have the right Favicon. In fact they all show the Favicon from my Bank! I have tried restarts, start in safe Mode, cleaned up using Onyx, but no change. Any thoughts?

This could be a problem with favicons.sqlite and possibly places.sqlite in the profile folder.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite then first try to rename/remove favicons.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed.

If that doesn't work then try to rename/remove places.sqlite as well with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

  • keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created

Thank you - these were great instructions! Removing the favicons.sqlite fixed it! And now I know that the "troubleshooting Information" link is the go-to place!

2020-09-10 - I have had issues with bookmark favicons not working for about 3 or 4 years, completely installing and uninstalling fire-fox many, many times, using different computers, always the latest version of Windows 10, using fire-fox sync, using 3rd party bookmark managers - often when importing bookmarks, there is no favicon, and I need to open every bookmark to load the favicon - can you please allow favicons to work normally in fire-fox?
