I’ve been watching this happen since the beta, yet haven’t yet been excited enough about it to actually log it as a bug (or even see if it’s already known). But I am curious to see how many other people have noticed the same thing.
Firefox 3 appears to “lose” track of the favicons associated with my Bookmarks toolbar.
Here’s a screen shot that should help illustrate:
See the red circled shortcut? As you can see by the fly-over text, that shortcut takes me to my Netvibes page. Yet, at the moment, the displayed icon is for WordPress! As the day progresses, that icon will periodically change to whatever the most recently launched page might have been.
But not every time or (as far as I can tell) predictably.
If I click on it to re-launch Netvibes it will then display the proper icon for a while.
I’ve observed this on four machines. Two running XP (sp2 and sp3), one Vista Ultimate and one Ubuntu 8.04. All four machines are running the same Bookmarks toolbar shortcuts with Netvibes in the first spot.
As I write this, I’ve just realized I really should move the Netvibes shortcut to the other end of the toolbar to see if this is related to that first spot. Or… perhaps it’s actually a Netvibes issue?
Guess I have more observing to do before logging this as a bug with someone.
Anyone else seen something similar?
