In Firefox 15.0.1 (for Windows desktop), is it possible to sort history by favicon?

I always add the site name while saving to Favorites, so something like "SU - " or "[SU] " in front of every link from this site groups all of them together. – Karan Sep 13 '12 at 15:26
@Karan TQ for the this tip, but for some (no?) reason I don't use favourites. – pnuts Sep 13 '12 at 15:28
Then why not Show All History and sort by the Location column? Isn't that what you want to achieve? (Sorting by favicon implies to me you actually want to sort by site.) – Karan Sep 13 '12 at 15:32
@Karan I'd accept "No" if you wish to post that as an answer (it is near enough!) but some sites seem to have favicons on some pages but not others. – pnuts Sep 13 '12 at 15:47
How does one sort by an image in the first place? Do you mean group by favicon? – alroc Sep 13 '12 at 15:47

Open the Show All History (Ctrl+Shift+H) window and sort by the Location column.

Even if group by favicon were to be available, unfortunately not all sites have favicons, and I've also seen some with the same favicon being used, which would certainly mess up the sorting.
