Is there a way to disable favicons?

I looked for the option in about:config, but couldn't find it. I would like to have them disabled on the bookmark toolbar or just disabled in general.

    You can do this with a user CSS. Add this to userChrome.css after quitting TFF:

    /* Kill bookmark icons in the Personal Toolbar */ toolbarbutton.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon {
    display: none !important;

    There's much more you can customize, look here: If you need guidance I'll be glad to help.

    It's not working for me. I might have placed the CSS in the wrong place. Is this correct?

    The CSS file should look like the one I attached, and it goes into the Chrome folder of your Firefox folder in Application Support:
    ~/Users/[your user name]/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/xxxxxxx.default/chrome Remember, quit the browser before you change anything, otherwise it's going to be overwritten.

    Good to know. I'll close this tickt, if you have any more questions about this, just re-open it.
