My favicons on my toolbar and my bookmarks disappeared. I found that clicking on them brought them back which was no big deal. This worked for the toolbar and the single bookmarks, however, I have many many folders with many many links and all have the generic symbol that would take to much time to click all of them. What would cause this to happen? Is there any way to bring them back all at once?
I have not been able to find much of a solution to refresh them all. I see some suggestions on the web say to delete the “favicon” file in your Chrome App Data folder, but when I tried this myself it did not fix it. You could try creating a new Chrome profile and then importing your bookmarks.
However if the favicon database is corrupted or empty, the icons will not be reloaded until you visit the site again.
It looks like you will have to launch each bookmark once, however there is a fast way to do so. If you visit “chrome://bookmarks/” without quotes in your web browser. Then you can right click on the bookmarks bar or any of the bookmark sub folders and choose open all bookmarks in the sub context menu.
