    Hello

    Something silly I know but something I am missing at the moment.

    After the latest Firefox update all the site icons (Favicons) have disappeared from my bookmarks list.

    If I use the Bookmark list from the top menu bar there are no site icons, but if I use the bookmarks option within the Bookmarks bar (far right) then the favicons are there. Is it a Firefox problem, or an added option to turn them off and I am missing it ?

    Sounds silly but I tend to pick the site I want by seeing the site icon when choosing the site I want.

    go to about:config

    search for...
    image.mem.decodeondraw

    double click it to toggle it to false.

    restart firefox

    Thanks, I was wondering why Firefox 9's favicon behavior was so inconsistent. That setting change cleared the problem up.

    It's built into Firefox. Instead of typing a normal URL into the Awesomebar, type about:config instead. You'll see a warning screen - dismiss this, and you'll be taken to a huge list of internal Firefox settings you can configure.

    Thank you very much indeed for that pointer, very useful to know for
    the future.

    Favicons now all OK :)
