How to disable favicons in Firefox

Favicons are those little icons that usually are located next to the address bar on the right hand side of your Firefox webbrowser.

NOTE: Been tested and tried in Firefox 3.0.12 but should work in all different versions of Firefox.

 

Answer:

  1. Open Firefox
  2. In the address bar type in the following ‘about:config‘ and hit enter

    about:config

  3. Search for ‘browser.chrome‘ by using the filter option.

    browser.chrome

  4. Now two options will appear ‘browser.chrome.favicons‘ and ‘browser.chrome.site_icons
  5. Double click on each of these options to set them to false.

    browser.chrome.favicon and browser.chrome.site_icons

  6. Restart Firefox and no favicon will appear again.

      I just tried this in Firefox 61.0.1 (64-bit) and it worked. Make sure you restart your browser after making changes in config.
