    You mean website icons? Yeah, it has happened in Chrome since long time ago. It also happens in Dragon but somewhat less frequent.

    Not for me as far as I can clearly remember. Trying clearing your cache and other data.

    The icons are not shown even from a clean state.

    Not sure if everyone are talking about the same "icons" here, the favicon is the little icon in the address bar next to the http.....just fwiw :)

    Oh, I thought you guys meant the tabs and bookmarks. In that case, I don't see favicons either. Don't remember when it happened, but probably a long time ago as well.

    Isn't it enough for the tabs to have the right icon anyhow?

    Ah sorry I didn't think about that they show up there too lol. :D

    Well I don't use chrome, but for me they do show up when I visit a site both in address bar, and in the bookmarks folder as well if I have it bookmarked.

    Let's say my weather bookmarks folder with around 20 links, the favicon will only show up for the sites that have visited, the others are "iconless" And if I clean my browser from data then all favicons will disappear of course, but comes back the next time I visit a site.

    I can't say a specific site, but I remember a few times when they haven't showed up.

    No problem with bookmarks or tabs for me though. I suspect the addressbar icon is a feature, not a bug.

    So when visiting a bookmark, the favicon is not restored?
