Hi,

 

Few days ago, my safari crashed and all favicons disapeared.

 

I tried to reload them slowly by visiting each webpage in bookmarks, but it did not help.

I also reseted safari and again, tried to visit each page, did not help.

Lastly I tried to open /library/safari to delete  Webpageicons.db , but I could not find safari folder.

Then I tried to search for Webpageicons.db on my mac, but failed.

 

Therefore, can you please advice how to return my favicons, I really need them

 

Regards,

Nick

Hi Nick ...

 

 

WebpageIcons.db is your Home folder not root level.

 

 

Open a Finder window. From the Finder menu bar click Go > Go to Folder

 

Type or copy paste the following:

 

~/Library/Safari/WebpageIcons.db

 

Click Go then move the WebpageIcons.db file to the Trash...

 

 

Quit and relaunch Safari. It may take a day or two for your favicons to re populate.

 

 

/Library  < root

 

~/Library  > home

 

The ~ (Tilde) character represents your home directory.
