Simply: Perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Everybody who needs to restore the favicons in his bookmarks and menu will ove it.
Worked for me in a freshly installed Firefox at once.

Works perfectly! Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks miacdo you saved me so much time and frustration. Please don't delete this addon. It's the only way to fix this stupid firefox bug.

For anybody confused about the instructions, you need to right click the top of Firefox and check mark Menu Bar, then go to bookmarks and it will be the second option from the top (Reload Favorite Icons) under Show All Bookmarks

It's the only Firefox favicon fixer available; works great on FF 48 after a tweak Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I lost all my favicons when I deleted places.sqlite in an attempt to correct a different problem. I soon realized favicons aren't just eye candy; they accelerate and enhance browsing, so I hate to lose them.

I searched for solutions and this unique addon proved to be the only worthwhile fix. Initially, it didn't work on FF 48 on Windows. So I tried replacing places.sqlite with a backup copy, but this didn't restore my favicons. However, I found that, after replacing places.sqlite and trying Favicon Reloader again, the addon worked! The dialog was displayed, I ran it, and it fixed my favicons. Excellent. I recommend trying this workaround if the addon doesn't work for you.

Great job! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on works just fine on Firefox 48 in Kubuntu Linux. I've had it installed for some time now across many versions of Firefox and it really works well although I don't use it very frequently.

Because I test new versions of Linux it's annoying to always be starting with a 'blank slate' as far as the favicons are concerned in a new install. Even if you visit a site several times, more often than not the favicon still doesn't appear in the bookmark. FavIcon Reloader to the rescue! :-)

The only refinement I would like to see is selective updating of favicons rather than the 'all or nothing' situation as now. I hope the developer doesn't discontinue this add-on as it really does a great job. Highly recommended!

Works as promised Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works with the latest Firefox version (48 as of today) and without problem it identified my bookmark favicons which are close to a thousand in total. Cheers!

It's really a shame this can no longer work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Personally, I would call something like this an essential add-on, so it really sucks that it can't work with the newer versions of Firefox (which, btw, the developer should add in the description since you can still install this to later versions than the ones it will work on and that just leads to annoyance).

Ah well, such is life. Thanks to the developer for sharing this, I really did love it while it worked! And, would anyone know of a new way to do something like this that doesn't involve opening several thousand bookmarks? ugh.....

Response to developer: Yeah, I know, I just meant a quick edit to the "About this Add-on" section ^^

This AddOn is released by me to FireFox version 46th
Unfortunately Mozilla extends the version independently and I can not restrict this.

Best addon ever Rated 5 out of 5 stars

miacdo you are a genius. God bless you for this addon. You saved me opening 150+ websites in order to get favicons. Plus your addon was able to display some websites that weren't displaying the favicon although i visited the websites several times. PLEASE DO NOT ABANDON THIS AWESOME ADDON!!

Thank you! Works great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on brought back my favicons on a new system build where I sync my Firefox profile. It works quickly and flawlessly. As per the developer notes, redirect websites are not supported. Also, websites that have strict robots.txt files probably block any attempt to update, but out of over 1300 bookmarks, these 40 or 50 are a breeze to deal with. The add-on did the heavy lifting for me :-)

Failed to refresh the favicon in Nightly v50+ Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The software is awsome, however, the author abandoned the project for a long time.

This AddOn could not be adapted to new FF versions

...because of missing API functions

Functionality has ceased Rated 5 out of 5 stars

app stopped working subsequent to firefox 45.0.1 update. continued dysfunctionality with 45.0.2 update. please debug as, otherwise, it's a super addon. thank you very much for your kind consideration.

No problem found

I have tested the AddOn several times on different machines on Windows 10 and Windows 7 in English and German.

This AddOn works up to the latest nightly build on FF32 and FF64. So please check your places database. Perhaps you use a script blocker or something else.
You might test a clean portable version.
You might export your bookmarks, delete them and import them again.

There is another user who tested other AddOns for sorting bookmarks. Perhaps those AddOns destroys the places database of FF.

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Suddenly it doesn't work ... at all Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Was working just fine a couple weeks ago. Nothing at all happens when I click on it now (either from the bookmarks menu, or from the context menu). Only thing that has changed is update to FF 45.0.1. No, no new add-ons. Running under fully-patched Win 8.1. FavIcon Reloader 0.8.1-signed. ..... Note that 5-star rating reflects prior experience ...! Please fix ... thanks ...!


I don't have a portable FF to test with. However, with FF 43.0.1, I created a brand new profile, and installed ONLY FavIcon Reloader. Both before and after importing my bookmarks, when I clicked on the Reload Favorite Icons menu entry, the Reload Favorite Icons window would come up, but there were NO entries in it at all. Also, it took on the order of a minute or so for that empty window to open (it used to only take a few seconds to open). Further, when I checkmarked the "show debug text in extra column" option, the Reload Favorite Icons window would no longer open, at all.

And let me repeat ... the app worked just fine until I upgraded FF to 45.0.1, then it quit working ... WITH NO CHANGES TO ANY ADD-ONS WHATSOEVER. Hope the above related behaviors will help you to find the problem with the app!

Cheers ...!

Please test with portable Firefox

This AddOn is tested up to the latest nightly build of Firefox.

This was exactly what I needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have a large amount of bookmarks and this addon reloaded all the favicons for more after I had to do a profile reset. It worked quite well.
