No favicons on IE8 Bookmarks Bar

None of the links on my Bookmarks Bar in IE8 have any favicons. They just have the generic IE icon. Why is this and how do I fix it? On Windows 7 Thanks

If the icons are not correct I would slect the link and see if they update.
Or
You may have to try deleting one and adding again to see what happens

My computer is working, A-1. I have a lot of favorites, because I save many of the tutuorials and suggestions given by others, so that I may offer help to members in need. I have found that as my favorites began go grow, I, too have the situation. In my mind however, it is caused by the sheer number of favorites.

Another possiblity is that because I transferred my Favorites with Windows easy transfer, from Vista, they are not working as should.

OK I deleted and re-added each link and the favicons appeared.

Just noticed a new issue though. I imported a bookmarks html file into IE8. This went well and all my favorites and folders imported except my bookmarklets. They were left out. I had to go and add them one at a time from the sites they are on. While adding them IE gives me a message saying they could hurt the computer. Obviously this is because they are user java script and this a secuurity thing with IE8. I select to add it to bookmarks anyway and it does. Is there a way to get them to import with my other bookmarks next time? It's a pain having to go hunt them down and add them on at a time.

I also still have an issue with the pop ups from the bookmarklets being block by the pop up blocker and when they shouldn't be getting blocked . I mentioned this in another thread but no replys to it.
