Some of my Sticky entries have no favicon. and like your experience, Sticky displays the generic firefox url icon, for example with the "LivingSocial" website.CRPL wrote:What is the easiest way to get the correct icons to show. A lot of my icons are just Firefox instead of the web site I am accessing.
Why? Who knows? Maybe the "https" login page doesn't have a favicon... but... I can fix that manually. Here's how I do that...
The LivingSocial login page is:
In my browser address bar I enter:
https://login.livingsocial.com/favicon.ico and hit "Enter". The favicon appears. I right-click the icons and "Save image as..." renaming the image to match my Sticky login URL... in this case "login.livingsocial.com.ico"
Note: If the favicon doesn't load from the last link, I may modify it trying...
Anyway... you get the idea...
After I've saved and renamed the icons I want to see in Sticky, I close Sticky ("exit"). and copy the icon files to folder:
When I reopen Sticky the favicons appear alongside their respective database entries.
If you have many sites that aren't appearing in Sticky, this process will be too awkward, unless you have a tool that can extract favicons from your bookmarks, or you have a browser that stores favicons in their "ico" format.
