I am using the official 1.7 release (not nightlies) and I get an error message installing the updated extension. It says favicon will only work with firefox 1.0+ to 1.5

Anyone having the same problems, or did I miss another thread somewhere?

You answered your own question. If by official you mean 1.07 then as your reply states partially what is explained on the first post of this topic
Extension version 0.3.0 will only work with Firefox 1.5 BETA or later

This still does not work with 1.0.7.

By the way, since this is such a popular feature, why isn't it in FireFox natively?

Version 0.3.0 will never support the original 1.0.x releases, there were initernal changes
made with bookmarks in the DeerPark and later releases necessitating the the update.

First posting has more details.

So, is there a solution of any kind for 1.0.7 users?

Yeah, do what the original post says.

Please continue to use the author's original extension for the Firefox 1.0.x releases
(prior version 0.2.5 is found here).

By the way - in case anyone was curious, there is no functionality difference between
the original version and the one for the newer Firefox releases. When the developers
made the significant enhancements for release 1.5, something changed in the way
bookmark information was handled; all I (and mook) did was clean up some of
the function calls that the original author did not do and account for the changes
made to reference bookmarks in release 1.5.

So rest assured, whether using FF 1.0.7 or FF 1.5Beta - the extension used for each
behaves exactly the same.

Okay. I'm currently running Firefox 1.0.7 - let me tell you how I got FavIcons working in it. (By the way, I tried this with versions 0.3.0 and 0.2.6 but could only get it working with 0.2.3 - must be some code in later versions I need to go (un)fix.)

.XPI files are essentially .JAR archive files (which are essentially .ZIP archive files). Here's the procedure:
1. Download "favicon_picker_0.2.3-fx.xpi" to a locally disk.
2. Copy it "favicon_picker_0.2.3-fx.xpi" to "favicon_picker_0.2.3-fx.zip"
3. Use your favorite archiver (I used WinRAR) to extract this to a folder "favicon_picker_0.2.3-fx"
4. Edit the Install.rdf file inside (this has Linux EOL's, so use something like Wordpad as opposed to Notepad) and change the following lines from:
<em:minVersion>0.10</em:minVersion>
<em:maxVersion>0.10+</em:maxVersion>
to:
<em:minVersion>1.0.0</em:minVersion>
<em:maxVersion>1.0.9</em:maxVersion>
5. Save your changes.
6. This could be indemic to WinRAR, but instead of compressing the "favicon_picker_0.2.3-fx" folder, select all of the files within it and fire-up WinRAR, compressing to a .ZIP file names "favicon_picker_0.2.3a-fx.xpi" (note the "0.2.3a" and the .XPI extension - put this on after selecting compression type of .ZIP).
7. Drag the "favicon_picker_0.2.3a-fx.xpi" folder onto Firefox and install it.

If you get an error along the lines of "Could not find install.js" then you got step 6 wrong (you compressed the folder instead of the files inside it) so go back and try again.

Hope this helps.

Quick question: Where can I find the icons that I currently have? I just want to use some of those for other sites and I don't know what folder they'd be in. Thanks.

I was also able to get Favicon Picker 0.2.3 to work in 1.0.7 by bumping the maxVersion. Tried it with 0.2.5 but it wouldn't work. Seems strange an older version will work in 1.0.7, but not a version that would work up to 1.0.6. Any way I got 0.2.3 here:

The icons are actually stored in the bookmarks.html file in your Firefox profile directory (eg: C:\Documents and Settings\<YourAccount>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<SomeRandomValue>.default)

This is a HTML-ish text file. The bookmark links are HREFs in regular <A> Anchor tags, with the site title between the <A></A> tags. The icon image itself is (usually) base64 encoded in the ICON attribute of the Anchor. Google's, for example, looks like this:

<A HREF="http://www.google.com/" ADD_DATE="1097214210" LAST_VISIT="1125058277" LAST_MODIFIED="1097838878" ICON="data:image/x-icon;base64,AAABAAEAEBAAAAAAAABoBQAA

Or you can just download it without having to edit anything (I already did that).

the easiest way is to right click the page you want the favicon for, select view page info, go to the media tab and save the favicon to a folder.
