Favicon Picker used to be one of my favorite add-ons for Firefox, mainly because I am a ‘bit of a control freak and I like to be able to customize every single little thing about my browsing experience. Yes, even down to the favicon image that is saved for my bookmarks.
For those of you unfamiliar with the extension, it adds an interface for replacing bookmark icons. Just right-click on any bookmark, select “Properties”, then “Browse”. (Folder icons aren’t supported yet).
Here are some of the other features of Favicon Picker 3:
- It works with popular image formats including jpg, gif, png, bmp, ico and animated gifs!
- Any image size can be used, as well as the standard 1kb 16×16 pixels
- You can grab images from a URL. Click “Browse” and paste in an address like http://www.cnn.com/favicon.ico or if a page has an image you like, right click on it and select “Copy image location”, and paste that in.
