The link in your first post doesn't work. It's not even a clickable link.

Some 3rd party addons can interfere with the favicons. In the url bar, type about:config and hit enter. Look for browser.chrome.favicons and make sure it is set to true.

Firefox has a strange issue, where the icon won't be saved when you bookmark them, it has to be loaded at least once before the icon is saved, try to click the bookmark and let the site load, after that the icon will be saved in the bookmark icon
