  • Hi, I have few questions regards favicons. I know, things work like this for years, but;
    First thing, on internal pages with option "Delay loading of background tabs" enabled, after browser is restarted tab.status usually remains "loading" or undefined, which probably is a bug. In my extension on startup I had to do a work around with checking if url matches opera:// to avoid loading favicons.
    Second thing is that on internal pages tab.favIconUrl object, returns an icon with forbidden theme resource, I know that it's like this for security reasons, but I would prefer to have undefined instead of error, so I could just load favicon from url without checking if url is from an internal page or not.
    As for the default gray icon we can finally load them from url (since Opera 33) on unloaded or on pages with undefined tab.favIconUrl, good job!
    And finally last; I requested media icon a long time ago and it's finally coming to Opera! Yaaaay!
    I'd like to have access to and tab.mute, like in Chrome. This would make my extension complete.

  • It came out more as a complaint than questions. Anyway can internal pages have status "complete" on browser start?
    Can internal pages have tab.favIconUrl undefined instead of url to unaccessible theme resource?
    And lastly I hope soon the media icon API will be available.
