hope to see this add-on back Rated 5 out of 5 stars
After installing your OS all favicons are not synced back by Firefox sync.. So this is a must have tool! Hopefully you will find a way to achieve this with the new SDK. Mozilla please see us we want this function in FF! Why is this not standard anyway? Good luck.
Used to be a nice and useful addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Too bad can't be available any more. 5 stars for all your efforts.
Thank you terataki
Perhaps Mozilla will add some Low Level API to the Web Services but this takes time...
I loved this addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Sad that there can't be an update. Thanks for the time and all the best. This 5* rating is to show some love. :) Really appreciated this addon!
Looks like it works just fine for me. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Using Firefox 51.0.1
Worked just fine for me. :D
Unfortunateley it does not work
Thank you but unfortunateley the used API is gone and will not be replaced.
You can check the Browser console.
There should be a message like:
"Warnung: 'nsFaviconService::setAndFetchFaviconForPage()' sollte nicht mehr verwendet werden, bitte verwenden Sie 'nsFaviconService::setAndFetchFaviconForPage(..., [optional aLoadingPrincipal])'"
This means that the API ist not available.
Gets the job done & stays out of the way. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great AddOn but does not work with FF49. I am hoping that this can be fixed in the near future.
I get message Download corrupted .......... DEVELOPER do something Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Nice software - for an older version.
Firefox version 43.1 All above are terrible for my taste.
Loved this add-on and sorry to hear that it can't be updated. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The developer cannot update this add-on due to the way the newer versions of Firefox handle favicons somehow. Bummer, because this was a very useful tool to update bookmark favicons and easily navigate my bookmark lists.
Neat Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you for nice job, hope FaviconRelader will continue.
Works OK in Pale Moon 26 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Just tried this in Pale Moon (a Firefox fork) 26.4.1 and it worked fine, although the only way I found to access it was via the context menu on an individual bookmark (I could still run it against all my bookmarks however).
Not Working Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Firefox 48.0.2 (64bit) Nothing happening even with all other addons disabled.
Have been using this addon for years worth 5stars when working as it has been until now
Sadly the used API is now deprecated
The AddOn cannot be adapted because there is no replacement API to set the Icon.
Not working Rated 2 out of 5 stars
It worked previously, but now with newer version it doesn't works :( Please fix it for newer version (it says not compatable with multiprocess)
Unfortunately there is no way to update the FavIcon from new releases of FF using e10s.
I have created a request to Mozilla but I think there will be no support for this in future releases.
pls fix not working firefox 48.0.2 reloader0.8.1 - does nothing! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
pls fix not working firefox 48.0.2 reloader0.8.1 - does nothing!
love this addon...............
It is already tested and it works
If you have still Bookmarks that are not updated than this is because not all bookmarks could be updated. E.g. redirections.
If you have still problems than please use a portable FF with no other addons and retest.
Perfekt! 1a + Rated 5 out of 5 stars
works, i love it! Big THX!!!This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.
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!This user has a previous review of this add-on.
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!!
