The tool also only works if your default browser is set to Chrome. file=79770 Feel free to scan for viruses or whatever. Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?
It was strange, I deleted the favicon file, I'd get just the default icon. Great deal of poor decision making and tilting at windmills in this web world in order to just stroke your own ego from what I can see.
Put the correct favicon in and I'd be back to the old/incorrect favicon (which was totally gone). Put the correct file back, old (now deleted) favicon. I really should get on the Chrome bandwagon I guess, but I disapprove of Google's world domination.
Except locally, where it worked as expected after a cache refresh. They usually do pretty good stuff, and I've learned that in reality "every man has his price".
Nice balance of popular, firebuggable, and strict(er) in its renderifications.
Why doesn't just visiting the website update the bookmark icon too?
You can try setting a bookmark while having Chrome Sync enabled and set to sync bookmarks.
Favicons are not stored in the cache, they're stored in one of the SQLite databases. This is a good thing since all your bookmarks would lose their icons until you visited them again.
Favicons DELETE FROM favicons WHERE id IN ( SELECT icon_id FROM icon_mapping WHERE page_url LIKE '%localhost:%' ); DELETE FROM favicon_bitmaps WHERE icon_id IN ( SELECT icon_id FROM icon_mapping WHERE page_url LIKE '%localhost:%' ); DELETE FROM icon_mapping WHERE page_url LIKE '%localhost:%' ; Actually all you need is to browse to com/and you will see the cached old icon, click refresh (ctrl R) or (ctrl F5) and you will see the new one. Testresults: In all likelihood the 'Favicons' file located in "C:\Users(User name)\App Data\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default" will show a file size much lower (~20-30k) than the one you saved into the exported file folder. Just remember to check the file size of the default 'Favicons' file every once in awhile, especially after adding new bookmarked webpages. For ease of recovering future lost icons add these two file locations to the Windows explorer's Favorites bar: a) 'Chrome bookmarks' b) "C:\Users(User name)\App Data\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default" PS in future use a browser history cleaner utility i.e. Avoid using chrome's History cleaning feature Looked through suggestions to change “stuck” favicons in my bookmarks bar.
I'd really, really, really like to be an Opera fan-girl, but it's just too different from the basic browser template I'm most familiar with.
If you search through the "favicon update" threads around here, often it's "why does it update in all my browsers but Firefox?
Or as my dear mother says "We're all whores in our own way, just some of us are smart enough to get paid." Don't get me started.
