Hello everyone.

When using Firefox 3, the favicon (the little pictures beside the address bar) in bookmarks sometimes change to another site's favicon (for example, the BC favicon changes to the Wikipedia favicon). It doesn't really affect my browsing but I like my bookmarks organized and I want them to keep their site's favicon.

Any help will be appreciated.

Try re-bookmarking the websites? This also happens to me sometimes.

Doesn't work. I've tried that and the favicon is still the one from another website.
