The Favicons should update over time as you visit the sites.

Thanks folks.Cocteau48 that add on actually replaced quite a lot of my favicons but there's still a lot blank?I've tried logging into them and even tried deleting some and re bookmarking them but they still remain blank?

Checkplaces won't fix it. This was actually a deliberate change in Firefox 8 - it's not a fault. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=685059 It's proving to be so unpopular that Mozilla look like they're going to have to change it back in the next release.

If it's a deliberate change instigated by Firefox then I find it odd that on all my systems (XP/Vista and W7) I have not lost a single favicon after upgrading to FF8.
