Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; de; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

There are sometimes no thumbnails available in you favourites bar (underneath the URL- bar)
It is annoying if you cant distinguish two or more favourites without thumbnail.

--> There should be the possibility to create a thumbnail on your own and add it to your fav.

HOW TO CHANGE?

1.) Right click on your fav.
2.) Change thumbnail
3.) Browse for picture in your own folders
4.) Replace 
5.) DONE


Reproducible: Always
Are you using an addon to put these thumbnails there? AFAIK There is no way to put a thumbnail of a webpage in the bookmark bar, by default.

No I am not using an addon .. I hate them..

It was rather an example how it should work in the next version of firefox by default!!

I know many peole who would appreciate such a new feature.

Blank pages in the favourites bar are OUT.
So, this is an enhancement request then, not a bug. You want to be able to have thumbnails in the bookmark bar.

Well it´s not a real "bug" because there isn´t this function in firefox yet.

It is rather a feature request so I am not wrong in this forum am I?

So anybody who is in authoriy please attend to this proposal or forward it.

Thx
It is set as enhancement, so it is all set for a developer to take a look and see if they wish to do it.
