the Icon left of the url apears. Other favicos work. is it pherhaps about that I named the bookmark '/.'? How does it calculate the filename? Should this be way of 'url-encoded'?
Seems to WFM. Does the icon reappear after follow the bookmark?
Wilfried, please be more specific. First what build are you running, second what exactly do you mean by it doesn't work? Third, have a look at http://www.mozilla.org/quality/bug-writing-guidelines.html to make it easier on you (less questions to answer) and us (less questions to ask) Thanks :)
I think I can help here. If you go to http://www.slashdot.org/, you get redirected to http://slashdot.org/. http://slashdot.org has a favicon, http://www.slashdot.org/ does not. So if you have a bookmark pointing to http://slashdot.org/ the favicon will be displayed, but if the bookmark points to http://www.slashdot.org/ it won't be. Simple, really. :-) Wilfried, could you please confirm whether or not this is the case?
first, im running 0.9.7. second, I have an existing bookmarkset, It contains also a link to wvww.slashdot.org, as well as to e.g. www.freshmeat.net. I lately upgraded from 0.9.5 to 0.9.7. The slashdot bookmark is in the personal-toolbar-folder next to the freshmeat one. left of the /. there is a seperator. After upgrading to 0.9.7, the favicos were loaded as I hit a matching website and shown left in the url-line. The /. Icon was also shown there. Usualy if icons were in the Url-line and in the bookmarks, the Favico was shown in the bookmarks too, (like freshmeat) but not /. . My Idea analyzing the ./-bookmark was, that it contains a unix-special character, the '/', and if there would be build a filename of that string, it would fail in any case. So I thought that it should be way of url-encoded. detailed enough? The 2nd poster: yes, the bookmark is ....org/; but the url-line if I hit the bookmark too. And it loads the Icon. Anyway, I can't change my bookmarks, because of I'm getting empty context-menu's at the moment.

To explain the problem here once again: If your bookmark is www.slashdot.org (notice the www.) you'll see no favicon, because www.slashdot.org provides no favicon; you'll only be redirected to slashdot.org (without www.). If your bookmark points to slashdot.org (again, without www.), everything works fine, at least for me.

Well, my /. bookmark points to slashdot.org and is one of the few favicons that has truly been reliable. I'm running 2002012606 on Linux. So... WFM.
Resolving as Works for me. Please reopen, if you still see this with a bookmark pointing to http://slashdot.org (and not http://www.slashdot.org !!)
