Deleting favicons in Firefox 3

Tagged mac, osx, firefox, favicon  Languages bash

To force Firefox to show your updated favicon (updating favicon.ico is not enough), first quit Firefox. Then issue the following commands in the terminal:

$ cd /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Users/christian/Library/Application\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/46xov8kt.default
$ sqlite3 places.sqlite 
SQLite version 3.5.0
Enter ".help" for instructions
sqlite> delete from moz_favicons;
sqlite> update moz_places set favicon_id = NULL;
sqlite> .quit
