As you use each bookmark the Favicon should be saved.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

Has the profile being used by 54 been touched by a later version (55 or higher)? If so, try resetting the profile. Note: resetting the profile will delete the extensions and their data.

Or you may have to use 54 to export the bookmarks to an HTML file, create a new profile, tag that as the default profile, relaunch Firefox using that new profile and import the bookmarks to it.

Note: you cannot just copy the places.sqlite file because 55+ did a structural change to places.sqlite file, including where favicon images are stored.
