Favicon Not Appear In Firefox Bookmark

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by kertoon, Nov 1, 2020.

    I have bookmarked all my WordPress sites with Firefox, but there are two sites do not show their favicons in the Bookmarks folder. How come?

    First, make sure you don't have a "normal" cache problem by loading the favicon URL directly (put it into the browser's URL bar) and force-refreshing it. If that does the job, no need for the complicated solution below.

    You can try:

    Install the latest version of Firefox
    Rebuild favicon configuration file
    Restart the favicon service
    Disable all add-ons

    Still doesn't work. The strange thing is my other sites have no problem. I installed it the same way, via Appearance/Customize/Site Identity/Site Icon.

    kertoon,
    I have this in my head section of my websites. It works.
    
    <link rel="icon" href="images/favicon.png">
    
    Code (markup):
    Check to see if anything is overriding the favicon. Try another browser.
    Are other people having the same issue with your website?
    What does you head section look like?

    1) do you have a proper ICO as the fallback? Are you INCORRECTLY declaring type="" on it? Does the link say rel="shortcut icon"

    2) If you're using .png, are you declaring it AFTER the conventional .ico? Are you declaring type="image/png"?

    3) are you using some other file format that browser support for icons is spotty? Such as GIF, BMP, JPEG, etc?

    4) Is it in the root, or a subdirectory? Remember favicons load more reliably from the root. (it also lowers the amount of 404's in your log since many UA's will just assume it)

    A bare minimum for both regular ICO and a PNG for fancier appearance should be:
    
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico">
    <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/favicon.png">
    
    Code (markup):
    If you declare type on the first one where it's a .ico file, it can often be IGNORED for that. The second one where it's a .png works the opposite where if you don't set the type, it's ignored. Fun times.

    Also if you're using a .ico, make sure it's ACTUALLY an .ico and not some other format just renamed to that.
