I noticed this when mass-importing bookmarks from IE. The bookmark icons are not shown until the corresponding sites are visited. So when you import a lot of bookmarks from another browser, you get a lot of blank squares: that's kind of sad :-) It would be nice if Firefox could automatically show all favicons for all bookmarks. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/9.0.1
yep, we never exported nor imported favicons. Btw since related to the IE importer, moving to Migration.
Component: Bookmarks & History → Migration
QA Contact: bookmarks → migration
Summary: Bookmark favicons should load immediately, even if site is not visited yet → IE migrator should import favicons
