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.



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


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

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

  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.
