#30668 new defect

Mobile: Favicon is not used when making a shortcut on Home screen

Reported by: torlove Owned by: tbb-team

  • Tor Browser and Tor Broswer (Alpha):
  • Press the three dotted button in the top right,
  • Select "Page >",
  • Select "Add to home screen".
  • A button on the home screen appears, but is missing the favicon.

Would the proper behaviour be to download the largest favicon possible and then resize it down on the client-side to avoid resquesting an icon dize that might identify the client os?

NOTE: Old Orfox appears to function correctly, in that the icon is used and it appears brilliant and sharp (ie. high-resolution).

Hm. I don't seem to have the "Add to home screen" option. But I suspect this is actually due to #28125 and is avoiding proxy bypasses (see: comment:11:ticket:28125 "I think the most noticeable change resulting from this patch is that favicons are not downloaded.").

There is not much we can do about that at the moment, alas. :(

It's interesting that you don't have the "Add to Home Screen" menu item. Do keep in mind that I am using Kitkat.
