Google updated its favicon recently and of course it is coming to Firefox in a future release. But if you don’t want to wait for the fix, here’s a tip to keep up with the times.
- Download this updated version of the Google search plugin. (Only change is the updated data: url for the favicon)
- Copy it to your searchplugins folder in your Firefox install folder (typically C:Program FilesMozilla Firefox on Windows), and overwrite the existing google.xml file.
- Restart Firefox.
