Is there a way to quickly and easily reload all favicons of open tabs of the current session (100+), or to restore them from storage? For some reason, after a recent browser restart, they are broken now, and I don't really want to activate all tabs for this.

If you right-click on the reload button on the address bar, there's a "Reload non-pinned tabs" item along with some others. (There is on mine anyway).

Many folks are having the same problem. There's a few threads about it and bugs have been submitted via Bugzilla.

You must/might have an extension or some other change in your profile ... no such function in my reload button in this profile and my bare-bones profile.

When I need to reload them I use this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... r/?src=api Works great. You can just select all, and click "Refresh", and they will all be downloaded again.

EDIT - I haven't used it in a while, and by the page, it looks like it doesn't work anymore. There may be other extensions that do it if you search for favorites or bookmarks.

I've just had a look & you're right. I have the 'Reload Plus' extension :-

Thanks for replies.
I don't think I'll go with reloading all tabs at once, I prefer only favicons to see reloaded. Sad that 'FavIcon Reloader' was discontinued. Anyway seems that it works only with bookmarks, but I need also with all open tabs.
I was unsure if this issue is happening only to me, but if you say that other people also faced with it, and it is already reported, I'll just wait for the fix.

It looks like that's a Firefox bug. More info here: viewtopic.php?p=14737927#p14737927
I am an idiot. Sorry for my poor English.

I'm not having this trouble (I'm not using session restore) though...
1345456 - Favicon fails to display for majority of tabs upon restart.
I wonder where it will go...

If you have been beaten with a bug above, and if you cannot take 53beta now for some reason, and if you don't have collapsed sessionstore.js file, try C&P following code in 'Browser Console' if possible.(req'd prefs devtools.chrome.enabled=true)(I know this is not an easy/quick method)

Code: Select all
for (tab of gBrowser.tabs) {
  if (!gBrowser.getIcon(tab)) {
    let tabState = JSON.parse(SessionStore.getTabState(tab));
    if (tabState.image) {
      gBrowser.setIcon(tab, NetUtil.newURI(tabState.image));
    }
  }
}

Thanks. I tried these tips, and they works somehow - favicons are restored instantly and still visible until the end of current session. But after closing, and then re-opening Firefox, favicons again are missing in ~95% of open tabs (in my case).
I will not install beta version, I'll wait the next stable release, I think. Thank you for trying to help me.

The following advice worked for me:
"For any tab affected by the problem, load that tab's URL into a new tab.
Duplicating the tab won't work - it has to be loaded into a brand new tab.
Restart the browser.
The new tabs keep/load their FavIcons, even though the tabs aren't loaded."
