I have a personal toolbar button for http://www.news.com/ - recently they started redirecting to http://news.com.com/ (stupid c|net!) Ever since then, my toolbar button's icon has disappeared, and I don't get the favicon that they have I've seen this on other redirects as well, such as http://www.excite.com/ and http://www.amazon.com/ I think we need to somehow track redirects and update icons appropriately... it's a hard problem, I guess we need to somehow know if the current icon came from a redirected url, and if so set the icon for the original url as well.

hey ben, any eta on this four (4) year old bug :p
Good luck with that. There are a ton of other favicon bugs in the queue. It's almost bad enough to toss out the feature completely.
The summary should say 301, not 304.

Created attachment 8785628 [details] Clipboard.png With the latest round of changes this looks resolved now. Rainer can you try it. I think we can close the bug.
I haven't a clue what the problem might be here. But my test results is: Still REPRODUCIBLE with official en-US SeaMonkey 2.48a1 (NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0 Build 20160804000913 (Default Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit (if my assumption what the problem might be is correct) 1. Open this bug report 2. In Bookmarks Menu Create a new Folder "FaviconTest" via Bookmarks Panel in Siedbar 3. Drag and drop Favicon of this page to new Folder "FaviconTest" » Bugzilla Favicon and Bug Summary shown in bookmarks as expected 3. ˋRichtclick link <http://www.news.com/> in original report → Copy link locationˊ 4. ˋrightclick new Bookmark → Properties → replace URL with clipboard contents and rename Bookmark to "FaviconTest"ˊ 5. ˋRightclick new Bookmark in Sidebar Bookmarks Panel → Open in new TAB → select new TAB if necessaryˊ » You will see <http://www.cnet.com/news/> » in Sidebar Bookmarks Panel you still see Bugzilla favicon for new Bookmark 6. Menu ˋFile → New → Browser Windowˊ » New Browser Window with Default Page will be opened 7. Check New Bookmark "FaviconTest" in Sidebar Bookmarks Panel » Shows SeaMonkey default Favicon instead of something useful :-( 8. Menu Bookmarks → Manage Bookmarks → Type "FaviconTest" to search input lineˊ » Found new bookmark shows SeaMonkey default Favicon instead of something useful :-( a) I think I did the same test like Phoenix in Comment 9 b) With STR from Comment 9 I still can reproduce the problem But as I said at the beginning, I don't whether I did the correct test. c) I think "Bug 232976 - Background loading of toolbar icons should follow redirects when possible" has a better Summary
d) I also tried with 'rightclick → Bookmark this link' in Step 3: No success, Favicon will not be updated e) I also tried with newly created User Profile: No success, Favicon will not be updated
