Is there a way to assign a custom icon to a folder in Firefox bookmarks?

That way not all folders would look the same, so I could delete the names and save some space in the bookmarks bar.

There's probably an add-on for that. – random Oct 2 '09 at 16:25
There used to be a custom add on for older firefox versions. I remember using it. But since firefox 2.xx it stopped working (and as I remember, development stopped) so now I'm looking to see if there is something which will work with 3.5.xx. Of course, I looked at mozilla's pages before asking. Alas, didn't find any. – Rook Oct 2 '09 at 16:30
Looks like it might be time for someone to take over that old one and brush it off for FF3 – random Oct 2 '09 at 16:34
Excellent. I knew I could count on you for the job. ;-) – Rook Oct 2 '09 at 20:18

Idigas - if you're getting bored waiting, there's a fair amount of talk on Mozilla's forums about how to do it manually. See and

It would seem the userchrome.js extension should allow you to edit these folder appearances.

I'm very late in this thread, but I was looking for the same thing. Turns out it seems samfind does the job.

I say it seems because I did not try it yet, but the features are pretty clearly expressed and meet the requirements stated by the OP.

It seems that Bookmark Favicon Changer works for folders too
