Bookmark Favicon Changer Version 1.00 has a serious bug, so I correct the bug and upload the new version.
Please see at...
But PLEASE update to FF4
Awesome add-on. Works exactly as described. However a suggestion for a future update would be to also have it work on folder icons.
Add-on добавлял комфорт и информативность. Жаль что недоступен для FF4 .
The link sonthakit posted doesn't work. I love Favicon Picker please update so I can use it with FireFox 4 on my new build.
firefox 4 needed
Nobodys fix works for me, it still screws up the browser
I edited the install file and its working perfectly in FF4 for me. I've uploaded it in case anyone else wants to use it.
I started to have the same problem as you guys, sorry. But for me worked setting the icons and then disabling Favicon Picker. Changed icons stays, but bug don't...
Well, Bb's update, renamed correctly to 4, ceased to work after computer reboot and had to be completely uninstalled.
Finny, pleasefortheloveofGod just put a donation button somewhere on your site for Amazon and/or PayPal donations. I'm sure that all the people clamoring for a usable version 4 would gladly recompense you for the version 2 guy complaints you've listed out (and it's not our fault you find fault with the entire OPEN SOURCE concept. If five thousand people gave only one dollar per person thru amazon, that's still a lot of frijoles for you.
Kann jemand die englische Anleitung ins Deutsche übersetzen ??? Ich würde gerne auch das Addon in FF 4 nutzen und kriege es nach der Anleitung mit der Umbenennung nicht hin. Ich verstehe es leider nicht richtig. Bei mir funktioniert es nicht. Meine Lesezeichen sind nach der Umbennenung weg.
Could the developer if still around fix this to work with 4.0? I liked this and used it a bit as it meant that I could change the icons of websites to something that meant something to me.
I've tried the "fix" download, editing it myself, and renaming the fixed file, but still can't get it to work properly. If it's enabled, I can use it like before, but then FF4 doesn't start properly. You can still edit the favicons, then disable. BUT yes, the favicon does turn to a blank white page after use, even after disabling Favicon Picker. This was a great plug-in when you had different links from the same primary site that has the same default favicon, and you don't have room for text, so hopefully someone with programming skills can get it figured out.
I was able to install BB's hack. Great work and thanks for posting this!! It does allow me to change the favicons on the toolbar. HOWEVER on my system (Ubuntu 10.10), BB's hack breaks the favicon display on the tabs. Instead of the proper favicon, the tabs show a bland white square. (uninstalling BB's hack reverts everything) Does anyone else see this problem??
After having installed FF 4 I just tried what you wrote. Apparently there occur some major problems and I can't confirm that Favicon Picker 3 is working properly in FF 4.0.
As mentioned by Fletcher I first uninstalled the addon, then downloaded and installed the modified package from the link Bb posted below.
At first everything looked fine, but soon I wasn't able to close single tabs. The issue was expanding when I couldn't close any tabs and Firefox even freezed.Trying things out by activating and de-activating certain addons it came to the conclusion that Favicon Picker was the cause.
Uninstalled it and FF is working well again now.
Please make an UPDATE for Firefox 4 PLEASE !!!
I miss this feature in Firefox 4
It really was a nice tool to have. Many of us had used it without a hitch. Now that FF4 is out that effectively killed it. Please read the developer's page and read why he discontinued it. I only gave it a one star because it is doomed- unless someone else can restart it from scratch. It is a shame because you can see he was really trying and he got royally screwed!
The developer is no longer updating this or any other of his add-ons. It's all outlined in the link 'Meet finny08'.
After upgrading to FF4 all my custom Google-related favicons turned to the same ugly "g" I so much hate to see.
Save my soul with an update, pls.
I'm not updating to 4 until this does!
Can't live without this Add-on, please consider making an FF4 version....
I happen to have a very cluttered bookmarks toolbar. Some of these bookmarks are for websites that don't provide their own favicons. With this I've been able to make my own favicons and apply them to my bookmarks so that I can remove their names, making for a MUCH cleaner, favicon only, toolbar. VERY NICE! Thanks for your work.
P.S. Giving 1 star because it doesn't work with a version of Firefox that it SAYS IT DOESN'T WORK WITH?!? REALLY?!? THAT, my friends, is hubris!!
Please Update for FF 4.0
this is also NOT working on Firefox4.
Please for a working addon to customize favicons as I only have bookmarks without caption on my bookmarks toolbar so its important to have proper icons on them.
