Hi folks! After updating to firefox 8 a lot of my bookmarks have small empty white squares where the picture/logo for the website should be?It's not all of them but a lot of them?Has anyone else experienced this and if so any idea why?Thanks.

The Favicons should update over time as you visit the sites.

Thanks folks.Cocteau48 that add on actually replaced quite a lot of my favicons but there's still a lot blank?I've tried logging into them and even tried deleting some and re bookmarking them but they still remain blank?

Checkplaces won't fix it. This was actually a deliberate change in Firefox 8 - it's not a fault. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=685059 It's proving to be so unpopular that Mozilla look like they're going to have to change it back in the next release.

If it's a deliberate change instigated by Firefox then I find it odd that on all my systems (XP/Vista and W7) I have not lost a single favicon after upgrading to FF8.

Just noticed my icons are missing on xp machine using 9.0.1 but on laptop with vista, also running 9.0.1 all the icons are there.

Downloaded addon mentioned above and most are back again
