Hey guys, I just got myself OS X through evil ways XD and the firefox theme for OS X is annoying in the sense that I cant bookmark websites with icons.

In windows, I used to bookmark websites with only their icons, and no text, this way I fit a lot of websites in a small space, on OS X Firefox, it doesn't seem to work because the icons don't show up. Is there any way around this (Addons, themes, etc.), or a browser similar to Firefox on OS X that allows it?

I'm going to guess by evil ways, you mean hackintosh

The Favicon system works the same on both platforms; so I can't imagine why there'd be a difference in the two. They show up for me, for example :3

Hackintosh is, however using apple's software on unauthorized computers, and since it is possible to buy OS X, example here (http://www.cnet.com.au/mac-os-x-10-5-leopard_buy-339283259.htm) wouldn't it be illegal? :S

Bookmark using just the icon and no accompanying text? You sure you weren't using an extension?

I do that all the time. o_O; Just go in to edit the bookmark and pull the name and it makes a great way to keep your bookmarks toolbar short and organized.

I assumed he meant automatically. He shouldn't have any problems just editing out the name.

*is the opposite of you people and keeps names but removes the icon*

Editing out name just leaves a small round circle D: Too hard to organise ;-;

EDIT: Ok, I found a theme for firefox that allows it, incase any other OS X user is interested:

Old Edit / Alternate Browser lol

lol I'm guessing firefox doesnt work, I found another browser, hopefully it will work, for other OS X users, this is it:

2. Permitted License Uses and Restrictions.
A. This License allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled computer at a time. (source (http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/MacOSX.htm))

Apple has the same clause in the EULA for every localization of their operating system. If you're using OSX on something that isn't Apple hardware, you're breaking the law.

And whoever downrepped me and said "that's been contested and proven wrong," you're simply incorrect. An EULA is a binding legal contract, and this has been upheld in nearly every state it has gone to court in (I think Minnesota is the exception).

but Apple can go screws themselves for using hardware that's compatible with windows, so it can use windows ;3

IANAL, but I believe that Apple is only licensing their OS out to you under the terms in the EULA. If you break those terms, since you are not licensed to use their software in that way, you would theoretically be breaking the law. On the other hand, it looks like in some states, EULAs are unenforceable (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_license_agreement#Enforceability), so you may have a point.

Wait... thats right... I didn't agree to anything apple :P XD
Your acceptance of the terms of the EULA is implied by your use of the software.
