I think this is smart of Mozilla. Fav icons are a bit of a joke anyways in my opinion.
It's interesting to hear this opinion on favicons. What makes you say that? I'm always interested in improving reader experience and if there is no use for them, then it would be interesting to know why. I think, at least with bookmarks, they at least serve as a visual reminder.

I actually really enjoy favicons. It's a very quick and easy way for me to find a site in my bookmarks (I'm a visual person). I also have to add that I push favicons as a selling point for my freelance sites, it's the little details like this that seal the deal. It will be a sad day when they get rid of them.
Now you're just mashing it!
It's ok to remove the favicon from address bar. Just don't remove it from bookmarks bar.. I have delete all the titles of my bookmarks and only show the favicons, this saved me a lof of space. I know Avant browser has the options to hiden the titles on bookmarks bar, in chrome I should delete them manually one by one.
Is there any extension in chrome that can do this?
Those were some very good listings!
Thank you very much!!!
I'm using Nightly (14.0a (2012-04-24) as the default browser on my 64-bit Ubuntu 11.10 box, and don't at all miss favicons in the address bar. But I agree that they can come in handy when searching one's bookmarks - I use the Delicious add-on (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/delicious-bookmarks/), which displays them in a sidepanel /which can be toggled on and off) and thus enjoy the best of both worlds....
THANK YOU!!!!! This is very helpful and explains alot of my problems i have been haveing, good to know the source of the problem. thank you Paul Lilly!
