Favicons and bookmarks now work properly in Firefox

In: Mozilla

18 Jul 2004

Checked into the Firefox aviary (codename for Firefox 1.0) branch: fixes for bugs 174265, 173762, and 228862. All bugs with favicons and bookmarks: “Wrong favicons in bookmarks“, “Favicons are forgotten after shutdown“, and “Store icons in bookmarks.html” respectively. All fixed by Vladimir Vukicevic with some clever JavaScript that fetches the favicons from the URL of each bookmark.

Not so fast! The new patch is an improvement, but introduces its own problems:

And Now: Ba-dump
Favicons now actually work in Firefox like they should.
