    how to restore favicons? (Safari)
    Apr 28, 2014 6:53 PM
    Yesterday the favicons were fine. Now they're all gone (all I have is the blue globe). Why did this happen and how can I restore them?

    I have an iMac (OS X 10.8.5) running Safari 6.1.3.

    Thank you!
    iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Your favorite site icons (favicons) are gone because you either re-set Safari or wiped out the Safari meta data. If you have a Time Machine backup, you can restore Safari to an earlier date. If no backups, then re-visit each site to restore the favcon(s).
