Description

a year ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0
Build ID: 20170316213829

Steps to reproduce:

1. Ensure that "Options > General > When Firefox starts" is set to "Show my windows and tabs from last time".
2. Open tabs for multiple websites (which have fav icons).  Note how each tab shows that website's favicon.
3. Exit Firefox.
4. Restart Firefox.


Actual results:

5. (a) Once Firefox has finished starting, note how the only tab with a fav icon shown is the current tab.  This behaviour occurs since v52.

(I should note that once you click on another tab, after it is un-suspended that tab does show a fav icon.)


Expected results:

5. (b) Once Firefox has finished starting, ALL of the tabs should have shown their fav icons.  This behaviour was normal up to & including v51 (and it makes it MUCH easier to find the right tab when you have many tens of tabs open).

Sorry, but I have no idea what "WFM" means, and Googling it wasn't helpful either.
