    I just had to reinstall Safari on my MBP. Now when I go to my bookmarks list, it is a list of globes instead of the various site icons. I have visited numerous sites on my list but they refuse to change. How to I change the icons from globes to the site icons?

    Thanks for your help.

    ny somewhere
    when you VISIT those sites, do the icons then change? that's what worked for me (after a reinstall).

    the icons in the bookmarks folder were all globes UNTIL i visited those pages.

    if that's NOT it, make sure you can add new bookmarks or...check that that bookmarks.plist (in Home>Library>Safari) isn't locked...

    or try repairing permissions...
