(28.5.0) (27.9.4 -> 28.5.0) Incorrect Tab Icons

OS : Debian Stretch with backports

Most of my tab icons switched to a white page back when I was using 27.9.4. This issue is present in new tabs and even the bookmarks. Sometimes, the icon is correct for one tab and a white page for another with the same website.

I was using 27.9.4 for a very long time. I used the "lull the tabs" extension, which allowed me to open many tabs without my computer slowing down. So naturally, the number of tabs ballooned to over 1000. It's at 1271 right now. ~60 are active in the current session, the rest haven't been loaded and all of them are automatically restored when after the browser is force-quit and re-started. I haven't "properly" restarted (ie, closing all tabs) my browser in over two years. When it crashes and does not restore anything, I use "Restore Last Session". I also have a lot of bookmarks and I changed

Code: Select all

to 1.5 Million.

I've upgraded form 27.9.4 to 28.5.0 and the issue persists. Is there a way to get the icons back? Preferably without losing any of my tabs.

An extension perhaps. Or you set a preference like to false.

by darkmoonuser was set to true. I cycled it and restarted twice, no change.
I don't think any extenson is causing this. I checked all user styles in Stylem anyway.This is the only tab-related style I have:

Code: Select all

.tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned]) {
  min-width: 32px !important;
Is there a way to delete all cached favicons?

I emptied the moz_favicons table from places.sqlite after killing the browser. The table is restored after a restart. Is there a way to mitigate this?
