    Only a few of my favorites on Safari have their website icons, the rest are just blank, which is quite annoying cos the icons can let you identify the website immediately. I tried deleting the ~/Library/Safari/Touch Icons/ folder and relaunch Safari, but still only those few same websites have their icons. The rest are just blank. For example, even YouTube doesn't get an icon.

    Is there a way to fix this? Cheers.

    I get the same thing, but only with Google....

    Wonder if it's intentional for google sites?

    Create a new user, reboot, login to the new user. Does the issue happen in the new user?

    EDIT: Try these and see if any of them help:
    • Repair permissions and reboot.
    • Copy ~/Library/Preferences/* to your desktop. Delete those files from ~/Library/Preferences. Launch Safari.
    • Copy ~/Library/Safari folder to your desktop. Delete everything in ~/Library/Safari folder except the bookmark plist file. Launch Safari.
