favicon.ico

Post by muchbugssoreport » Sun Jan 13, 2019 6:54 am

Filter found in Fanboy+Easylist-Merged Complete List

Code: Select all

/favicon.ico$third-party,image,domain=~github.com|~stackexchange.com|~stackoverflow.com|~askubuntu.com|~reddit.com|~4chan.org|~twitter.com|~live.com|~espn.com
I noticed some favicons are not working due to this. Is this to prevent phishing ? Is there a way to fix this.
Pages like ign.com, feheroes.gamepedia.com, mail.com etc... are getting theirs blocked so the list is blocking more than needed. Is there a way to solve this issue?

The filter is part of "Fanboy's Enhanced Tracking List" to block the tracking with favicon.ico
If you use this list (merged with the mentioned list), be aware that this strict list may be causing problems on some websites.

add as a custom filter

Code: Select all

@@/favicon.ico$image,domain=ign.com,feheroes.gamepedia.com,mail.com
or

Code: Select all

@@/favicon.ico$image
