In my Linux partition, Google Reader is not showing the site favicons, why is this so ? Is this a Google Reader or a Google Chrome bug ?

I'm using Google Chrome 7.0.517.5 dev

Here's a screenshot


And yes, I have enabled Show favicons in Reader settings

Wow! I learnt something new here, I didn't even know you could show favicons. Sorry that's no help for your question though... – Benjol Sep 17 '10 at 4:59

It's broken: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=54926

According to comments, it will be fixed in the next iteration of developer releases.

Thanks, starred the bug. Will update when the bug gets fixed. – Sathya Sep 18 '10 at 0:17

I'd say it's a Google Chrome bug. My 7.0.517.5 dev doesn't show them, Epiphany does.

If you use Firefox+Greasemonkey there are some scripts to get the favicons. For Chrome the Greasemonkey equivalent is Greasemetal. May be someone who has installed it can provide link for the chrome browser utility.
