I currently keep all of my notes as Markdown files. Those files contain mainly links, and for some extra flair, I include the favicon of the site in front of them like this:

I use Google's S2 service to get the favicon and ![][fav-atlassian.com] renders it. The result is the following:



As you can see, this Markdown renders as expected here, but not in VS Code anymore (it used to, until recently). VS Code seems to render a single space in the place of those favicons. What I've already tried:

  • Checked if the same markdown renders fine in other tools, both windows and online
  • Changed Preview Security Settings to Disable - Allow all content and script execution from Strict - only load secure content (in VS Code)
  • Checked if normal images render correctly
  • I add some CSS (and gave specific dimensions to all img) to check if those images are rendered but with the wrong the dimensions (possibly 0x0 or 1x1)
  • I checked the terminal/output for any errors

None of the above produced any results. I don't know what else to try in order to find a solution. Any thought?


It resolved itself after updating to 1.29.0
