Re: Firefox 22.0 no longer allows me to change favicon

Can you clarify what you are trying to do and where you want to change the favicon?

Can you attach a screenshot?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.

I did all that and even changed the png file to an ico file and it still did not save it. Since the upgrage to version 22 things don't seem to work as well, so I may just go back ot IE.

You still haven't explained what exactly you are doing?

Can you describe more clearly what you do?

If this about favicons on the Bookmarks Toolbar?

Note that the Bookmark Favicon Changer is broken because APIs that his extension was using have been removed.

I have added the change favicon add on. Otherwise the drop down menu would not show change favicon. However, when I change the favicon or export the favicon, nothing happens.

Apparently there is no practical turnaround to this problem, Favicon Changer does not work anymore, hope that Mozilla team will fix it as soon as possible.

Sorry, bit it's not up to Mozilla to fix broken add-ons, that is the responsibility of the developer of each add-on.

Re: Firefox 22.0 no longer allows me to change favicon

Agree, Mozilla has nothing to do with add-ons, but my problem with favicons is not related to Favicon Changer, but to Firefox 22. Once I realizaed that Favicon Changer did not work anymore with Firefox 22, I removed it and tryed to change my favicons manually:

1. I deleted my bookmark with the wrong favicon 2. I deleted the browser cache from preferences 3. I restarted Firefox 4. I went to the web site and made a new bookmark

I am on OS X 10.8.4

Unfortunately the favicon displayed from the new bookmark is not the good one but still the previous one (the wrong one), whilst with all other browsers (safari, Chrome... etc) the favicon shown is the good one.

So, either I'm doing something wrong or Firefox 22 has some problems with favicons...
