Lost favicon display in address bar for all non https sites.

Which platform? Mine are still there, at least for sites I've visited semi-recently. Matter of fact I think it must be helping itself to Camino's cache, because I don't believe I've been to some of those sites in FF in the past six months.

Didn't they use to have some kind of generic favicon? Now it's just a depressing little box.

Mozilla removed it. [support.mozilla.org]
The Site Identity Button has changed to protect users from hackers trying to "spoof" legitimate looking site buttons. The site icon will still appear on bookmarks and on tabs, but not at the left end of the Location/URL bar.

Thanks GaryK. Not that I care about it much, but it has always been there and was a bit of a shock not to see it. Never heard it called a "The Site Identity Button" before.

Wonder if the other browsers will also remove it?

Chrome already uses a nearly identical approach.

For a few versions Firefox used a white square with a dashed gray border when a site didn't seem to have its own favicon.
