I got it working again. I deleted all cache files and folders i could 
find, did a bookmar export and import, deleted the cache files and 
folders once again, removed all favicons files I could find.

This did not brought back the Icons automatically. As only the 
favicons of my book marked sites were missing I once again did a 
reload of the icons in the bookmark editor (after the next remove of 
cache files) and all favicons are back. The icon-reload didn't wor 
many times, but this time all went smoothly.

I think favicon handling can be improved. In general the icon cache 
handling seems to be not finished.

So a happy christmas
