Changing URL bookmark loses favicon
Since Bug 329797 is fixed I can change the contents of a bookmarklet. But now it changes the icon that I always use for this bookmarklet into a neutral one, what makes it hard to recognize it quickly between other bookmarklets on my toolbar. The only way I currently know to solve this problem is to change the URL field contents of bookmarks.html in another browser, and then import it daily into the places build, but that means that I'll also lose my history every day.
When the URL of a bookmark changes, it should check with the favicon service to see if the new URL has a favicon already. If not, it should assign the previous URL's favicon to the new one. Joe: it seems like you are accumulating a lot of specialized code to deal with changing URLs of bookmarks. I suggest that this be merged into the bookmarks service so it can be re-used.

This appears to be fixed, or at least it doesn't occur anymore in Places. I just changed an icon of a bookmarklet but it keeps to new one when I click the bookmarklet. I'll reopen if I see it again.

To be more precise, I changed the address field of an existing bookmark and it keeps the favicon.

Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h". In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows: Tools | Message Filters Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New" Conditions: Body contains places-to-b-and-h Change the action to "Delete Message". Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top. Click OK. Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter. Gerv
