Bug is shown in the attached image, including steps for producing the problem

Questions: 1. Is this a known bug? 2. What is the easiest way to get the bookmark updated with the updated icon? 3. Is the amount of bandwidth saved by the complex storage scheme for icons that saves some downloads worth the icons not updating due to bugs like this one? hint: The answer is no. Keeping favicons updated in browsers is always a hassle. It’s been like this ever since favicon came out. You need to change your whole approach, not just fix this bug.

Comment: it is amazing and wrong that so much effort goes into complicated browser caching to save every possible byte from an extra download. It would be fine if the process was not always riddled with bugs. It's not just firefox, its all browser makers catering to the least common denominator. The default should be set for broadband, not crappy internet in the middle of the arctic. If you want to support the arctic, then provide settings to change to low bandwidth mode. What you have done, and this icon thing is an example, is made you the browser error prone with complicated scheme that anyone with broadband totally doesn't need. When you find a way to make bugless software, fine. Till then, you need to reduce complexity to reduce bugs.

I cannot tell you how much it pisses me off to go through the whole rigamarole of putting all the different versions of my favicon into the sites' root directories, because that is the dumbass standard supported by browsers, then have to look to look at my old favicon, knowing that all my site users are still looking at my old favicon, in their bookmarks, and there is not a damn thing I can do about it, except to ask the volunteers who read this stuff to knock the developers heads out their ass and knock off this stupid practice of catering to the lame. Firefox is a technology leader. Lead from the front and let others catch up, and show some pride in your product by zealously avoiding bugs by pursuing simple vs. complex software. you can start by cancelling the caching of favicons. We can deal with downloading favicons along with rest of a web page, so that we can have the latest version. What we cannot deal with is an uncrackable cache storing the old icon.

I got around this by reinstalling firefox, saving the bookmark, which at that point got the new icon for that site, then importing my old bookmarks, which then had the new icon applied because I had saved before the import. What a pain in the ass.

In the "old days" of OS2, you could create a Copy of a program and it would act independently of the original ("shortcuts" were also possible, but it acted just like its original). In Firefox, I would create a "copy" that when clicked would go to TropicalGlen.com for music. I could have another copy of Firefox that would, when double-clicked, go to my gmail,com account. I knew this process as "Object Oriented Programming." I'm running both Windows Vista Home and Windows 8.1.

it seems that my Firefox has been infected by the Deals4u malware. It appears to be contained in only Firefox since I'm running Xubuntu it is extremely unlikely that the 'system" is infected. I have tried other browsers using the same pages and there are no signs of infection.

I'm running Firefox 39.0.3 Mozilla Firefox for Ubiuntu canonical - 1.0 on Xubuntu 14.04.

All the support suggestions are for Windows or Macs (no surprise there), but, there doesn't appear to be any talk about this being in the browser. I did check my Add-Ons and didn't see anything there (I have not tried going to about:config as I'm not sure what to look for).

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions as to hos to remove this?

Thanks!

I wiped my desktop to clean install windows 10 yesterday morning. When I got back on the computer my dashlane account manager didn't want to restore my old data so I had to request a new password. So I restored the password synced up on my phone and desktop and things weren't popping up. I have the "Desktop Bookmarks" on my phone with no way of putting them on my desktop. My first priority is backing up the bookmarks on my phone and importing them into firefox. And 2nd, why isn't it appearing on my latest version of firefox on my desktop? The android firefox is also completely updated.

Running Windows 10 Pro. Updated Firefox to v40.0. In Upper right corner, the Minimize, Full-Screen and Exit buttons did not work and hovering over any of them failed to highlight the button. I re-downloaded the update and re-installed, but problem still existed. As a test, I tried downgrading to v39.0.3, which fixed the problem. I realize that the downgrade may pose a security risk, but it works, and v40.0 doesn't! Prior to downgrading, I tried the Customize option, de-selecting and re-selecting the top menu bar, but neither helped. What next?
