Example sites: www.groklaw.net, www.slashdot.org, theregister.co.uk . The icon gets displayed in the url widget and on the tab but not stored in bookmarks.html. For other bookmarks the favicons get stored as expected. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.groklaw.net/ 2. Add to bookmarks Actual Results: Favicon gets displayed in url widget and on tab but not stored in bookmarks. Expected Results: Favicon gets stored in bookmarks like icons for most other sites.
Something I forgot to mention: The bookmark entries that don't store the icon keep their default "sheet" icon instead.
I see this too on windows XP pro. I see this on www.mcafee.com and www.symnatec.com
indeed, there still are some issues as i pointed out here: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=252224#c9

(In repply to comment #0) > Reproducible: Always > Steps to Reproduce: > 1. Go to http://www.groklaw.net/ > 2. Add to bookmarks Note that the icon for the bookmark will not get loaded/updated until you either a) select the bookmark explicitly; or b) (in most cases) switch to another tab and then switch back to the tab with the bookmarked site. This is a limitation of the current way bookmarks are handled, in that the icon isn't passed along when a site is bookmarked but is only updated the next time a load for that site is noticed. > Actual Results: > Favicon gets displayed in url widget and on tab but not stored in bookmarks. It's displayed in the url widget and on the tab, but is not displayed on the bookmarks toolbar, right? Can you confirm that this is the case by bookmarking the site, then explicitly visiting it (again), and checking to see if the icon gets saved?

Deleting the bookmark for groklaw.net and then creating a new one and explicitly visiting the new bookmark works, i.e. the icon now gets stored. However explicitly visiting the bookmark doesn't seem to be enough since I still have problems with e.g. slashdot.org. I guess re-adding that bookmark would fix it too but I'm not sure if it's a good idea to require users to re-add these "malfunctioning" bookmarks. Here is my slashdot.org bookmark entry, maybe it helps to track down what is wrong with it: <DT><A HREF="http://slashdot.org/" ADD_DATE="1050174870" LAST_VISIT="1090531029" LAST_CHARSET="ISO-8859-1" ID="rdf:#$RddOn1">Slashdot: News for nerd s, stuff that matters</A>
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040723 Firefox/0.9.1+ Confirming that re-adding malfunctioning bookmarks _always_ works. I wonder why this is caused anyway? At first I thought it had something to do with imported IE favorites (some of them were malfunctioning), but it seems older Firebird/Firefox bookmarks can have the same troubles as well (I had a Bugzilla root bookmark which refused to show its icon). Perhaps that, as a workaround, Firefox 1.0 could include some wizard (visible or not) on first start that would effectively refresh the whole bookmark list (i.e. re-add every single one)? This way, people using 0.9.x and having tons of bookmarks would save a lot of time. Forcing people to do this by hand is _very_ tedious (one bookmark is okay, but five or more is just ridiculous).
patch in on aviary, trunk soon (once bookmarks stuff gets moved over) http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/bonsai/cvsquery.cgi?module=AviaryBranchTinderbox&branch=AVIARY_1_0_20040515_BRANCH&cvsroot=/cvsroot&date=explicit&mindate=1090724100&maxdate=1090724640&who=vladimir%25pobox.com However, note that sites with incorrect/bad favicons still might have nothing displayed in the bookmarks toolbar -- bug 247981 needs to make it to aviary first, so I can test for valid image content before saving.

What constitutes an incorrect/bad favicon? I just tested the latest nightly (from 25th) and after visiting the slashdot.org bookmark got updated. However visiting my plone.org and theregister.co.uk bookmarks still doesn't result in their favicons beeing updated.

However > visiting my plone.org and theregister.co.uk bookmarks still doesn't result in > their favicons beeing updated. By incorrect/bad favicon I meant favicons that aren't valid images -- i.e. sites that return junk for /favicon.ico, or return an error page without also returning an error code or somesuch. However, plone.org and theregister have valid favicons. Can you copy your bookmarks entries for those sites here?
Here are the entries for plone and theregister: <DT><A HREF="http://www.plone.org/" ADD_DATE="1057774403" LAST_CHARS ET="UTF-8" ID="rdf:#$aA6F+3">plone.org - Welcome to plone.org</A> <DT><A HREF="http://theregister.co.uk/" ADD_DATE="1050183297" LAST_V ISIT="1080850324" LAST_CHARSET="ISO-8859-1" ID="rdf:#$VddOn1">The Register</A>
This is working now as tested with the three site originally reported. The favicons for those sites do appear as expected on revisiting the site. Seen on 0.9+ branch build from 0726.
I just checked the branch build from the 27th and plone.org works now but thregister.co.uk still doesn't.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040727 Firefox/0.9.1+ As a sidenote, b.m.o (any page on the domain, actually) still doesn't give me a favicon either. Re-adding the bookmark doesn't work, either, as opposed to comment #7. :-( <DT><A HREF="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/" ADD_DATE="1090950182" LAST_CHARSET="ISO-8859-1" ID="rdf:#$aCkgv2">Bugzilla.m.o</A>
Using the build from 20/8 together with a fresh profile, I am getting no favicons at all in my bookmarks.
Scratch that earlier comment, a newer build works fine for the most part. To get a favicon in the bookmark however, I must 1st create the bookmark, and then revisit the site (refresh, open the bookmark). It is *only on the 2nd page* load that the favicon 'transfers'. HTH

It still doesn't work for my http://www.theregister.co.uk/ bookmark in the latest nightly: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040901 Firefox/1.0 PR (NOT FINAL)
http://www.theregister.co.uk/ works fine for me. Bookmark it, load it once, and the icon fills in. Mozilla/5.0 (Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041017 Firefox/1.0 Is this still happening with a clean bookmarks.html, and a recent build?
The favicon shows up on the address bar, but not in the bookmark list - but only for some sites. For example, www.nytimes.com shows a favicon in the bookmarks sidebar but www.cnn.com does not...

This bug still occurs for me. For example: www.nationalrail.co.uk www.tvguide.com Both display the icon but do not store it in the bookmarks toolbar. Using Firefox 1.07 on XP Pro.
I'm also seeing this bug with SeaMonkey 1.0 branch build 2005101611 on Windows XP SP2. Deleting and readding the bookmark, then revisiting the site, fixes the problem in SeaMonkey, too. Should this be changed to a core bug, or should I file a separate bug for SeaMonkey? I'm also seeing the problem on these other sites: http://www.mozilla.org/ http://www.amazon.com/ http://www.adobe.com/ http://www.real.com/
Not sure if this will help others or not, but I figured I'd share anyway. I was using this plugin for the GIMP to make a favicon for my site: http://registry.gimp.org/plugin?id=6819 The plugin creates an icon file with multiple layers, 9 in total; 3 at 16x16, 3 at 32x32, and 3 at 48x48. The 3 versions of each size contain layers at different color depths. When using the 9-layered icon, it would show up in the address bar, but not when I created a bookmark. After many iterations, I found that removing the 48x48 layers allowed the favicon to be displayed both in the address bar and in a bookmark. Your mileage may vary, but it did the trick for me!

I still can confirm this behaviour with this site: http://derstandard.at Even if I click on the bookmark itself, the icon stays the default favicon. I have tried a few of the other links, but they all work for me. I use Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20060308 Firefox/126.96.36.199

Created attachment 257016 [details] Testcase A : favicon is shown in bookmarks The favicon will be shown in bookmarks (after clicking on the bookmark).
Created attachment 257017 [details] Testcase B : favicon is NOT shown in bookmarks The favicon will NOT be shown in bookmarks. This seems to be because it's a multipart Windows Icon (the favicon from testcase B is also a Windows Icon, but not multipart).
