    Firefox - some bookmark favicons are missing/won't appear


    This has been bugging me for a long time. Some of the favicons for my bookmarks are missing - just showing generic icons. Even if I visit the page, it still won't build the icon. But then some sites do work. Any idea what's going on? Youtube is one of many examples that just won't build the icon for my bookmark. It works in Chrome.

    Solved my own issue:

    - Right-click a bookmark with a broken favicon and select Properties

    - In the Location: field, look to see if the http part of the URL has an “s” at the end, so that it’s https://

    - If it doesn’t, try adding an s to the http:// part of the address, so that it reads https://

    - After you’ve switched the address from http to https, you may need to ‘click’ that bookmark again for the favicon to load.

    That solved it for me.
