    IconEdit32 is wrong as there are not duplicate resolutions. It just can't handle the 24b color depth.

    16x16x16
    16x16x256
    16x16x24b
    32x32x16
    32x32x256
    32x32x24b
    48x48x16
    48x48x256
    48x48x24b

    The icon at vbulletin.org is simply a 16x16 icon. It also is not the same image.

    I can see that the image isn't displayed along with the bookmark but it isn't because the image is invalid or corrupted.

        And the reason is here.

        Our favicon.ico is considered too large to cache.

          totally agree, it's just a tiny little image of very little importance in life

            Thanks for looking into this Freddie and finding the exact reason it doesn't work with Firefox.

            Could you simply use the one that vbulletin.org is using, it would make sense to have them be the same favicon anyway.

              I removed the 48x48 images from the icon and it now caches properly in firefox.

                  Considering how often browsers request that file, it should help that this file is now more than 50% of the size that it was.

                      Same here. Great job.

                      Could you throw this solution over to the vB Deutsch forums?

                          Favicons in Bookmarks toolbar on Firefox on Mac

                          I've made two themes based on Firefox 2's default theme for Mac OS X that show the favicons in bookmarks toolbar. They're waiting for editor's approval on addons.mozilla.org, but I'll email to you them here if you're too anxious. PM me your email address.

                          Mac Favicon theme

                          Firefox 2's default theme for Mac OS X, but with favicons enabled in the bookmarks toolbar!

                          There is a variation of my this theme called; Mac Favicon XL.

                          Could be useful to use in conjunction with Favicon Picker (When it becomes available for Firefox 2).

                          Mac Favicon XL
                          Firefox 2's default theme for Mac OS X, but with Xtra Large favicon's and no text in the bookmarks toolbar!

                          This is a variation of my other theme; Mac Favicon.

                          Mac Favicon XL works best with favicons of 32x32px, (see image). Therefore it is powerful to use in conjunction with Favicon Picker (When it becomes available for Firefox 2).

                          Installation instructions
                          1. PM me your email address, so that I can email it to you
                          2. update Firefox to Firefox 2.0 if you haven't already
                          3. go Tools > Add ons in Firefox
                          4. click and drag the .jar file you downloaded into the Add ons window.
                          5. wait for 3 seconds
                          6. click install
                          7. click on the Themes tab
                          8. click on the new theme
                          9. click 'Use Theme'
                          10. restart firefox
                          11. check it out!


                          Let me know if you have any problems with them. I've tested them both on Firefox 2.0 on Mac OS X 10.4.8.

                            Looks like the old favicon got put back, it no longer works with Firefox.
