Is there a way that the sub-docks can display the favicons for the Chrome and Firefox windows? I read some threads that appear to address this issue but can't get successful results: ( http://glx-dock.org/bg_topic.php?t=5145 ).

I experimented with the “overwrite X icons” in the Taskbar module. I see that it works for Image Viewer (eog) but not Chrome (chrome-browser) or Firefox.

Having many browser windows opened (often more than 30), it would be very convenient to glance at the icon image to zoom in on the desired window. Using the caption/label is great. Having the added visual effect would be a nice enhancement.

I would put this in the feature request section, but from reading the messages it appears that it might already be a feature that I'm having problems figuring out how to activate.

Thanks!

Hello,

The dock can display only images that it receives and here it seems Firefox and Chromium don't send the favicon to X server. But there is maybe a plug-in to do that for Chromium or Firefox (e.g. you can enable a plugin of Totem to display a preview of the current song/video)

also, I'm not sure that this option works for a launcher
it does work for the icon of an application that doesn't have a launcher, but maybe not for a launcher.
and this is done on purpose, but we can discuss about it (if you find a way to enable this feature in the browser first)
