Apple released macOS Big Sur version 11.7.3 in late January with security fixes, but the software update also introduced a new bug that prevents icons from appearing in Safari’s Favorites section, according to numerous complaints online .

Affected users have complained about the issue in the Apple Support Community, Twitter, Reddit, and other online platforms since the update was released last month. In one of the Apple Support Community threads, nearly 300 users clicked the “Me too” button to indicate that they are also experiencing the issue as of this writing.

For concerned users, many websites in the Favorites section that would normally display an icon simply appear empty or only display a letter.

It’s unclear if Apple is aware of the issue or if an additional macOS update will be required for a fix. In the meantime, updating to macOS 11.7.3 is still recommended due to the important security fixes implemented. The latest versions of macOS Monterey and macOS Ventura do not seem to be affected by this Safari bug.
