Love it! Adds color & shape where there wasn't before! Makes my favorite sites that don't have a favicon that much easier to identify in my favorites bar! love it!

... except when it randomly generated a swastika symbol as a favicon. I know it's random, but is there ANY way to block that shape or swap it for something else if that happens?

No easy detection

Detecting swastikas in general is not easy. I added some code to block the generation of certain shapes that look like swastikas, but other combinations might also result a similar shape. Besides, except for the most trivial cases, what in your opinion "looks like a swastika" might not look like one at all for others. In my opinion, for example, it is pretty far fetched to say that your link resembles a nazi swastika. (Not any more than it resembles a green cross.) Anyway, if you don't like the icon for a particular site for any reason, you can always add that site to your exception list in the add-on preferences.

Easily recognizable? Well, all the generated icons have the same style. Only colors change. Better than nothing, but not really satisfying.

I like it. The designs remind me of flowers or something, but it makes it easy to identify websites that don't use a favicon

Identicon Information on addon page Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perhaps you should add a link or a short summary of what an identicon actually is to the addon's page. You seem to be getting some feature requests that people wouldn't make if they knew what an identicon was.

Does what it says, and seems to work with some of the tab coloring extensions. Does not support offline files for some reason.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

Offline?

Hmm, I'm not sure what you mean by offline files. If you mean html pages saved locally and accessed via the file:// protocol, than sure, no favicons are generated for those, since the seed of the icon is the domain name. No domain name, no icon, its that simple. (Localhost, however, does get a favicon.)

Very Useful!!

It really resolved the problem of needed change the icon everytime you don't find a page with one. The color are great.

No manual option> Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Would be nice if this allowed for user-specified icons.

For instance, my banks website has a favicon, which works fine. Their 'online banking' website is at a subdomain, and they forgot to put a favicon. I used another extension to manually choose the icon for the bookmark (copied it from their main site,) but would love to have it use the same icon when it was open in a tab. I found this and thought it would let me, and didn't realize it always used auto-generated one with no way to manually set an icon until after I installed it. Rather disappointed - I don't want a 'random' icon. I want to specify it.

See Favicon Picker

I intentionally do not want to complicate this add-on with such features. Especially since other extensions, such as Favicon Picker, already do what you ask for.

Add first letter of the domain name to the favicon Rated 4 out of 5 stars


Would you add first letter of the domain name too.

That would make it even more interesting.

Where?

Add the first letter to what? I'm sorry, but you need to be more specific.

I love having icons in my bookmarks and this generates them very nicely for site without. I have 15 ext and works great with all of them with no performance issues. Great work!

Thanks, very useful. I have a few sites I love but I hate the plain favicon. This addon actually chooses favicons that match the sites color scheme (I hope this was intentional and not just a coincidence). I also love that it does it's job automatically for sites without a favicon. Anyway, thanks a lot, I needed this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

Coincidence

I'm glad you like it. I'm afraid the choice of color is a coincidence, since all aspects of the icon are chosen pseudo-randomly based on the site's domain name. In this case, it seems the site's name and its color scheme harmonize :-)

I see no way to remove the icons. I've uninstalled the add-on and removed the bookmark, restarted firefox and add the bookmark again and it creates the favicon again. I would expect that icons created by this add-on will be removed when you do the above. I got tired of the fake icons that didn't really mean enough to me so I've removed it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

Work in progress

This feature is on my todo list. The problem is that Firefox API does not trivially support this. Anyway, your problem is that favicons are not only stored in the bookmarks but also in the BROWSING HISTORY. So in order to completely discard identfavicons, first delete the affected bookmarks, then wipe the browsing history (from "clear private data"), and then recreate the bookmark. (I think browser restart is not necessary.)

endless looping and filling log files Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This AddOn seems to loop endless and very fast sending requests to favicons to web servers.
As we deactivated it, the logging stopped, as we reactivated it, the logging was running again. Fast, 10 or 20 times per second.
Just like a DOS attack ;-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2). 

Fixed in 0.3

I'm aware of the problem. This is an unfortunate bug, occuring on some sites. It has been fixed in version 0.3 (pending review, downloadable from the add-on homepage), please upgrade.

Can't remove it Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've uninstalled this program because it was creating favicons for sites that already had them, and even though i've removed it, it is still creating favicons for some sites. How do i get it to stop working?!?

Pity it doesn't work with Mac!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2). 

I don't think it's the Mac

Could you please be more specific than "does not work"? The extension does not have any platform-specific features, it definitely should work on Mac (and considering that according to usage statistics, about 500 hundred users installed on a Mac OS X, it probably does). Perhaps the problem is caused by something else, perhaps a conflicting add-on (e.g., Favicon Picker). Could you please try the add-on with a fresh profile?

Good for what it does, but unfortunately it doesn't work on v3.5 RC3.

The new, 0.2.2 version (coming soon) works with all currently available FF versions, including 3.6b1. You can already download this version from the add-ons home page.

Bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When the parameter javascript.options.jit.chrome = true not working generation favicon. version 0.2.1

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

jit.chrome still in experimental status

I'm aware of the problem, but I haven't found information on why this could happen. According to the mozdev site, jit.chrome support is still experimental, and it is disabled by default for a reason. I will keep an eye on the problem and see how jit support evolves in FF in the near future.

Very nice, but it's generating swastikas too often. ;)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2). 

Not an easter egg

This is not an intentional feature, I assure you! :-) Identicon generation is purely random, but I guess the symmetry of the swastika and the generated icons is similar, therefore every once in a while this can happen. Fortunately though, the generated icons are never black. I will perhaps try to find a newer, better identicon generating algorithm.

Odd.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Beautiful implementation and really useful tool. One oddity I just came across though: the page http://usenet-addresses.mit.edu/ doesn't have a favicon, but nor does IdentFavIcon produce one.

Other than that, great work. Thanks for all the effort.

Thanks for the report, I will check that page when I have some time.
