Most sites have **** favicons and Chimera looks more polished with the favicons turned off in that region. I would love a pref to allow users to turn them off for all areas but the location text field. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.load Chimera .6+ with bookmarks in the toolbar bookmarks area with favicons Actual Results: the favicons load and look bad. =) Expected Results: should have a pref to turn them off, for the love of clean UI. none
Perhaps it should be handled like a normal toolbar, even if it's not one internally, via a Control menu: text+icon, text or icon and Remove Item. It would be less confusing. See Bug 181954
Will, you can disable favicons entirely by adding the line, user_pref("browser.chrome.favicons", true); to your user.js file. Is that sufficient?
(er, make that false rather than true.)
Ok, that works the way I want. But it should be listed in the prefs window so "normal" people can turn it on and off.

Is it possible to take this one step further, and disable ALL icons in the toolbar? It was brought to my attention by someone I was getting to try out Camino that this was one of the only apps he used that had icons you could not disable in the toolbar, and he's got a point (albeit a petty one). In other words, maybe just a tiny little arrow like Safari or FF have for folders, and no icon at all for regular bookmarks? This would be a cool little feature that could be imbedded under the hood perhaps.
(In reply to comment #6) > Is it possible to take this one step further, and disable ALL icons in the > toolbar? Absolutely gets my vote. I have a tiny screen and every pixel counts. Safari is better at this, although I guess you'd need a highight on mouseover as they do.
Personally, I don't think there are enough users that want favicons off to warrant a GUI for the preference.
A GUI pref seems like overkill to me. It can be done in user.js. If anyone wants it in a pref, pref panels aren't too hard to make and can incorporate other appearance features people are asking for. WONTFIXing.

Reopening to ensure that the prefsjs prefs work (which they don't).

Summary: Allow users to turn off Favicons in the toolbar, I prefer the clean look of the generic bookmark icon → Allow users to turn off Favicons in the bookmarks toolbar (at least by hidden pref)
Target Milestone: --- → Camino1.0
This patch fixes support for the "browser.chrome.favicons" pref, so that turning it off disables all the site-based favicons. We'll still show the special icons for local files, history and bookmarks.
Fixed on trunk and branch.
