    OS Elcapitan Problem with BookMark Icons
    IMac 16gb Ram with El Capitan OS .

    Hello All , I am Elvis and I am also new,
    I recently upgraded my OS to El Capitan from Maverick or some....
    I really liked the way my Bookmarked looked , every bookmark had its own Icon and now everything is like scrambled eggs,
    I no longer have my Icons on the left sidebar, which was very handy
    Can someone please tell me how to make my bookmarks look like before or at least have an Icon for every bookmark ?

    Thank You !!

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Nothing has happened just driver has to learn ticks. Go to Safari > View > Show Bookmarks Sidebar.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thank you much for the reply buddy,
    I think I did not make myself clear , here we go again

    I DO see the sidebar, but the problem is that I miss the Icons, there is no icons anymore..
    What I see now is just the sidebar without the Icons
    Now I have to read every line and find what I look for , before all I had to do was just find the big yellow or green or whatever color the big Icon was , and just click on it.
    Some Manufactures had their own icons and that's how I would find them !!

    Welcome to Jon Ive's notion of what an operating system should look like - gray and drab, no color - It sucks doesn't it?

    i'm waiting for XtraFinder to catch up to 10.11 so I can get my color icons back in Finder.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    The developer of XtraFinder has a work around without completely disabling SIP. Follow his directions given here. That will get your color icons back in Finder.

    ELVIS420, if I understand what you are saying, the little icons in Safari bookmarks that show you the site logo are now all the same, look like a little blue globe. IF that is what you are seeing, then when you visit the site, and if the site is sending that favicon (which is what that mini icon is called), then the globe should be replaced with the site favicon.

    That's how it looks on my system as well. AFAIK, that's how it's supposed to look. The favicons I mentioned are in the dropdown menus from the favorites bar, not in the sidebar. The sidebar has, if I recall correctly, always shown the book icon.
