I run Safari 5.1 on Lion and all the favicon on my bookmarks and on the adress bar disappeared. Now i have only the blue globe. Does someone have any idea why and how to make them come again? I tried to empty the cache, remove the cookies... No change.

Safari, Mac OS X (10.7)

    Quit Safari.


    Go to ~/Library/Safari.


    Move the WebpageIcons.db file from the Safari folder to the Trash.


    Relaunch Safari.


    ~ (Tilde) character represents the Home folder.


    For LIon:   To find the Home folder in OS X Lion, open the Finder, hold the Option key, and choose Go > Library

    I tried to erase the webpageicons.db in the safari folder but i couldn't find it nor in any subfolders, maybe that's why i don't get favicons anymore. Thanks for your help.

    I use Mavericks Mac OS X 10.9.2 and Safari 7.0.2 on my iMac for some days.

    I had problems with bookmarks and favicons.

    I delete yesterday my webpageicons.db.

    (This was a suggestion in an other thread).

    After that I open some webpages with bookmarks and the favicons are new stored.

    I work a day with my iMac with some application and change to an other account and go back to my account.


    Now all bookmarks are gone.

    I don't know this is using of other account?

    I use other account yesterday after deleting webpageicons.db and go back and favicons are present.


    Very good programming from Apple ;-(
