Imported bookmarks from IE11 all of which have their favicon next to the link name, but in here, there's just a default icon for each.  I don't want to display the name, just the icon, so if this is not going to work at any time, I wont be using the new edge, and I'm sure others will feel the same way.

Hi @microsvc, can you confirm that the favicon will show up the first time you visit one of the sites?  This is a limitation that we are aware of when we import favorites.  Thank you for letting us know that this is important to you.

@Elliot Kirk  I did open all in new tabs (37) and the favicons came back. Thanks for that tip! 

Is there a way to remove all of the icon text so only the icons show (like in IE11)?  Prefer not to do one at a time.
