I have a particular bookmark on the Bookmarks toolbar which has the incorrect favicon and has had since before I upgraded to this version of Firefox. When I go to the page again, Firefox sees that the new favicon for the page is invalid and removes it. However, it does not replace it with the generic "Page" icon. It just leaves a gap where the icon once was. In addition, if I restart the browser, the incorrect icon will have reappeared. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Bookmark a page which has a valid favicon.ico 2. Change the site so its favicon.ico is invalid 3. Revisit the site Actual Results: - Icon next to bookmark disappears and leaves a blank space. - Reloading the browser causes the old, now invalid, bookmark to reappear. Expected Results: - Bookmark should show generic "Page" icon. - Should "forget" the old icon which is invalid. Hard to reproduce because the reproduce steps I gave involve actually making changes to the website and reloading Firefox.
Confirming with two pages that seem to have invalid favicons currently: http://www.weather.com/ http://us.codejunkies.com/ in both cases favicon.ico exists but seems to be corrupt.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Note that this also affects the location bar: the normal page icon is missing there also when the favicon.ico is corrupt.
Here's an example of the bug I was referring to: https://select.worldpay.com/wcc/admin A bookmark of this shows no icon. Now that I think of it, I can't be sure whether this has anything to do with the https protocol.

(In reply to comment #1) > Confirming with two pages that seem to have invalid favicons currently: > http://www.weather.com/ www.weather.com has a 1x1 transparent image as its favicon.ico. > http://us.codejunkies.com/ codejunkies has a 32x32 transparent image as its favicon.ico. Nothing I can do about those two cases. :)
That would explain why IE shows them as garbage ... IE can't handle transparancies.
(In reply to comment #2) > Note that this also affects the location bar: the normal page icon is missing > there also when the favicon.ico is corrupt. Actually the bug does not affect the location bar - only the icon shown in bookmarks. The reason the icon didn't show in the location bar for those pages is that the icon is a transparent image. Try to reproduce the problem with the URL I gave and you'll see that the "page" icon shows in the location bar while you're viewing it, but if you add it as a bookmark now and then visit the page you will see the bug.
The favicon of bitfluxeditor.org located on http://bitfluxeditor.org/favicon.ico is invalid. The bookmark has no bookmark icon after accessing the page and stored the favicon info into bookmark. Another case: The bookmark of blogs.msdn.com has no favicons, but with the 404 HTML pages when accessing http://blogs.msdn.com/favicon.ico. The bookmark stored the whole HTML pages as favicon(data:text/html;...) when accessing blogs.msdn.com again.
N.B. What I mentioned above are same issues, but in different cases.
http://www.e-scio.net/cqfd/loi.php3 I get the same thing here. There is no <link rel="icon"> on the page however, and /favicon.ico gives me a 404 on the server. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040723 Firefox/0.9.1+
I am not experiencing this bug with bitfluxeditor.org, blogs.msdn.com or www.e-scio.net/cqfd/loi.php3 as I am with select.worldpay.com/wcc/admin . This leads me to believe that the bug may be something to do with the HTTPS protocol used here in combination with the invalid favicon.ico.
Found another example, under HTTPS: https://sitepoint.com/bookstore/neworderform.php
Summary: Invalid or missing favicon.ico results in no bookmark icon → Invalid or missing favicon.ico not being saved for HTTPS pages
(In reply to comment #10) what build are you using? I can reproduce in the latest Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040724 Firefox/0.9.1+.
Currently using 20040726 branch. Looks like this bug is similar to bug #120304, although I'm pretty sure the method of caching favicons has changed since that bug was filed.

Can anyone reproduce this on current trunk builds? I'm not sure I quite understand what the bug is, but it seems to work for me on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007083005 Minefield/3.0a8pre ID:2007083005
none of the above examples works nor is completely clear the scope of the bug, resolving incomplete, if anyone can post further informations and example feel free to reopen.

Can no longer reproduce. Pretty sure this was fixed years ago - it pre-dates Places.
