I have many Google Maps on my website( http://walkinginfrance.info/)and they contain both default Google icons and my own icons, each with their own URLs. They work correctly in all other browsers, and Firefox up to FF7.
However, yesterday I loaded Firefox 8. In FF8 the Google default icons are still visible but my own icons are now invisible, but their placeholders are still there. They are still visible in all other browsers. Also, if I now try and add one of my icons to a map, the process seems to work correctly, including a placemark name appearing, but the icon is invisible. The invisible icon is definitely there because you can click the placemark and be taken to the correct position on the map for editing, but the icon is not visible.
To see the problem you need to look at a map in my website eg http://walkinginfrance.info/?page_id=7886 in both FF8 and another browser to see that the Google default icons are visible in both browsers, but my own icons ("Start" and "Finish" in this case) are not visible in FF8.

Reloading the page worked for me. Don't know why it didn't render on first load.

I have the same problem with my map... on firefox 9.0 :s
Anyone find a tips to fix this bug ?
Same problem here!
Please fix this problem asap, I've embedded thousands of maps with custom icons!
Read https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=702578#c2 and fix the cross-origin headers on your server.
Think for yourself. Otherwise you have to believe what other people tell you.

Thanks trolly ! it works now : with a htaccess file in the same location than my icons.
Trolly, thanks for your input. That's sorted it.
Alright FF8 enabled CORS. What about file sharing services like Dropbox where we can't upload .htaccess files to change the "Access-Control-Allow-Origin".
Now Dropbox is pretty useless on Firefox8, should Dropbox change his policy just for Firefox8 ?
Could you describe the scenario where Dropbox doesn't work?
