    Hi,

    In Firefox and Netscape, when I add bookmarks to
    the Bookmarks Toolbar they are displayed with a
    tiny thumbnail image. But when I add my own
    Web page, it has a plain box instead of an image.

    Where does Firefox/Netscape find the little
    thumbnail images to display on the Bookmarks
    Toolbar?

    Many thanks,
    Martin Leese

    In location bar enter about:config and:

    Set to "true" the preference "browser.chrome.favicons"
    Set the "browser.chrome.load_toolbar_icons" as follows:

    0 = never, 1 = when in cache, 2 = always
