Salesforce Colored Favicons

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Updates the standard favicon on Salesforce tabs with colored versions to help differentiate between different organizations.

Image from store Salesforce Colored Favicons
Description from store Supports both Classic and Lightning Experiences and includes separate icons for production, sandbox, and develop/scratch orgs. To use the extension, simply navigate to a Salesforce org and the extension will automatically select a random color for it then update the favicon with that color. Now every time you visit that org, the colored favicon will be displayed instead of the default Salesforce favicon. At this point you can also visit the options page to change the color for any org you've visited.

Latest reviews

  • (2023-11-10) Chad Rogers: This extension is a great help when having multiple environments open at the same time! I recommend this tool for anyone else using Salesforce.
  • (2023-10-18) Anthony Pica: In our quest for digital efficiency, it is sometimes the small details that make a big difference. I'm grateful, then, not just for this extension, but for the reminder of the importance of life's intricate details. Thank you for developing this helpful tool.
  • (2023-09-15) Anne Nuguid: This is a must-have for me!
  • (2023-06-01) Max Wunderlich: This extension is a lifesaver if you work in multiple SF orgs on a daily basis, including sandboxes of a single org. It's simple, functional, and even actively maintained by the developer. 👍
  • (2022-12-03) Katharine Fairchild: As an admin who is constantly going back and forth between Production and sandboxes for testing, this has been game changing. I've only had this extension a week and already I have seen the benefits during a recent project where I'm jumping between doing some testing in a sandbox, back to Production for regular follow up/management. Simple and super brilliant. It wasn't clear at first how to actually make update the designated colors. I didn't see any clear instructions on the store, either (go to the extension, then click Extension Options, click the color of the org, update and make sure you click SAVE).
  • (2022-10-17) Ellie Breden: An excellent extension, simple to use and effective. If the publisher ever considered creating an ISO 27001 compliant version I'd happily pay to use it for professional purposes, as I'm sure would many others! Really great extension, much appreciation to the publisher for filling a gap left by Salesforce not providing an option to customise site favicons.

  • (2022-10-05) Grant Johnson: I agree with the recent comments. It was great until it recently started requiring permissions to to read/change data.
  • (2022-10-05) John Collins: I had to disable this extension because of the sudden change to allow reading of data for visited websites. Hopefully, the developer will revert this.
  • (2022-10-03) Andi Simons: I loved this extension, until it started requiring access to read and change my data on all salesforce sites. I have a regulatory obligation to protect that data, so now I'm stuck removing this extension and finding another way to deal with keeping my orgs straight. Please take that permission away again - this has worked so well without it for so long!
  • (2022-07-21) Dan Seminario: I am not able to use this. Options are empty when on a salesforce tab
  • (2022-05-25) Hey, I love this! I've used it for years and recommended it to anyone else who's a SFDC admin / dev as an essential tool. I admittedly did come here just to let the dev know that the new URL format SFDC launched broke the extension for sites (X.secure.force.com or X--testing.sandbox.my.salesforce-sites.com)
  • (2022-03-17) Laurie Hanlon: Love this extension. AS a consultant I work in multiple SF orgs and being able to easily differentiate which org is which by the color of the tab is a huge time saver, and avoids accidentally doing something in the wrong org. Highly recommend this extension!
  • (2022-03-17) Benjamin Bratcher: Very useful extension to help differentiate the Salesforce environments you are logged into. It changes the color of the Salesforce logo on the tab. Great work! Thank you, Steve!
  • (2022-03-16) Thais Pedroso: Best extension for Salesforce users! I recommend it to everyone I work with, as it's definitely a must have!
  • (2022-03-10) Muse Operations: Helpful for organization purposes. I kinda wish it stored my settings to the cloud so they would sync across machines
  • (2021-12-17) Michael Campbell: This is a no brainer extension to download! If you are operating in sandboxes, trailhead activities, or doing consulting work, THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST. It keeps everything organized and ensures all your tabs are easy to navigate.
  • (2021-12-02) Jon Pearson: This extension is so useful when working in multiple organizations but needs updating. A recent Salesforc change resulting in refreshed sandboxes all have the same {org--sandbox}.sandbox.lightning.force.com meaning that all sandboxes are appearing with the same color. This extension was updated within a week to handle this change. Thanks Steve for keeping this extension useful.
  • (2021-10-04) Jake Bullard: Just PERFECT! Literally it could not be any better. Such a simple and excellent extension. Thank you Steven!
  • (2021-07-30) Rachel Sinex: I'm not typically one to write reviews, but this extension is so great I felt I needed to. This has drastically improved my efficiency when working in multiple salesforce instances simultaneously, which is something I do with regularity. Thank you so much for developing this and making it available to the world!
  • (2021-05-17) Natalie Foley: Very useful, simple and straightforward
  • (2021-05-11) Manas: There should be a way to add a url if it doesn't detect automatically, like prod communities
  • (2021-02-18) Jake Bullard: Game changer!
  • (2021-01-15) rohit budhiraja: It was working fine for me till the time I removed the last color (duh! I don't know why I did it). Can you help me add it back?
  • (2020-10-13) Lucia Harris: It seems like a great tool, each time I open an instance I receive a different color favicon. I'd love to set specific colors, however when I click on "Options" there is only a "Save" button. I don't see how to add a specific color per environment. Can someone give explicit steps please?
  • (2020-09-22) Kaily Rasmussen: I've used this previously and I loved it, however, now I can't change my prod color to any shade of blue. Anyone else having this issue or know how to fix?
  • (2020-09-22) Jodie Miners: I have loved this extension for a long time but the little enhancement of showing DX for scratch orgs is also great!
  • (2020-08-07) Anant Mahajan: i choose Red for my PROD orgs so that i am sure which org i am working on. Really Cool.
  • (2020-07-09) Claire Jones: This extension is so useful as it allows me to keep track of which tabs are for which org / Sandbox. Knocked a star off though, as occasionally it resets all the colours I've deliberately set back to its defaults.
  • (2020-01-31) Krishna Bidwai: This extension is really helpful for the developer to avoid unwanted tab opening. I want to know if I can configure it. example: production - keep it default blue color sandbox: grren. In short, control over the colors for different environment?
  • (2019-12-10) Adam Cadman: I regularly have 3 or more SF Orgs open - this app saves so much time in looking for an open tab for a particular Org
  • (2019-07-29) Cynthia Davis: This seems like a great idea but it doesn't work. The options page doesn't allow me to add instance and a color, I just see blank columns and a save button.
  • (2019-05-28) Marcin Jaszczuk: This saves me from the eye pain of straining to see the URL and allows me to be more accurate/efficient. This is a brilliant tool. Thank you for giving this to the world.
  • (2019-05-13) Evgenii Azimzhanov: Could you post the source code of the extension to github? So we can contribute and fix bugs
  • (2019-04-11) Chris Farace`: This extension was a 5 star for me, however now it doesn't seem to work with the new release. Instead of the singular cloud that was overwritten by this extension, SFDC now has a blue square with a white cloud for every tab and so this extension no longer works. Please fix, this extension was my top 3, it made managing multiple environments so easy!!
  • (2019-03-31) This is very useful
  • (2019-02-19) Awesome extension. Makes life easier working with different environment
  • (2019-01-24) Kushal Bhalodiya: It was working few weeks back but now it is not working.
  • (2018-12-18) Elvin Wilmer: Excellent and simple extension. I am a Salesforce Administrator and I work in multiple orgs. This app helps to keep me on track.
  • (2018-10-18) Jordan Farmer: I work in many different orgs, and even more sandboxes...this tool is a game changer for me and my users!!
  • (2018-05-18) Sha Syed: Great Job Bro... small feature but great impact.
  • (2018-04-24) Lauren Kamrad: Best app on the market, hands down. Great job Steve.
  • (2018-01-31) LaRonda DeMatteis: I really appreciate the ability to indicate my different salesforce session logins between my orgs.
  • (2017-05-21) Rune Waage: a "must-have" extension for all Salesforce developers and other people logged into several sandboxes at the same time.
  • (2017-04-17) Joey Len: Does exactly what it says it will do.
  • (2017-04-03) John Hutchinson: Brilliant little extension! Perfect for developers who work on loads of different Salesforce orgs and have multiple tabs open at a time.
  • (2017-01-12) Z2: You are my life saver ! Could you add more? for example, documentation for apex etc.
  • (2016-12-10) Mark Bolton: I love this extension. It is one that I rely on heavily and therefore in my priority toolkit. As a Salesforce Admin, I will often have at least two if not three (or more) orgs open at once - Production to support our users during the day and either a Sandbox or DE org (sometimes both) and having an easy way to differentiate the orgs at a glance by color is simply brilliant. It is a little glitchy from time to time, coloring the icon incorrectly, but a simple page refresh always resolves that. Thanks for creating this!
  • (2016-11-24) Michael Paisner: So simple, but so useful!
  • (2016-11-21) Adam Trzcinski: very useful
  • (2016-09-15) Allyson Clark: So helpful!

  • (2023-07-13, v:2.0.14) Suzie Dusek: Export/Import
    I had to move to a new laptop. I exported my favicons and imported them to the new laptop. Now, all my tabs are different colors than what I had set up. Can this be corrected?
  • (2023-05-18, v:2.0.13) Max Wunderlich: Automatic "DEVELOP" instance supersedes actual domains
    Hello! This might be a side effect of Enhanced Domains (not sure at this point), but I've noticed that the extension interprets URLs with the structure "mydomain123--package789.develop.vf.force.com" as being in a "develop" instance, rather than in the "mydomain123" instance. This causes similar pages in different orgs to appear with the "develop" favicon color, and unfortunately, when I remove the "develop" instance from the extension config, it automatically re-registers "develop" the next time I open that page, regardless of what org I'm in. Note that this isn't happening in sandbox orgs, since the URL structure is "mydomain123--sandbox456--package789.sandbox.vf.force.com", and I'm inferring that that case is already covered in the extension somehow. Thanks in advance if you're able to fix this for non-sandbox orgs. :)
  • (2023-01-27, v:2.0.13) Andy Ray: Requesting privacy policy to use your plugin in healthcare environment
    Hello, your plugin is a lifesaver. We're looking to use it in a healthcare tech company, and the chrome plugin page says: To learn more, see the developer's privacy policy Can you please provide us your privacy policy?
  • (2023-01-09, v:2.0.13) Andrew Tauber: Enhanced Domain Support
    Can you add *.site.com to the supported domains here so that sandbox experience cloud sites can have colored favicons?
  • (2022-10-17, v:2.0.12) Ellie Breden: ISO 27001
    Are you please able to confirm whether this extension is compliant with ISO 27001? Would be great to be able to use this extension for professional purposes. Many thanks in advance.
  • (2022-10-14, v:1.5.1) Give Clarity: Data Access/Privacy Policy
    Hi, Please can you confirm what data is accessed by this plugin - is it just metadata? Also have you got a privacy policy. Many thanks, Kate Bowe
  • (2022-10-14, v:1.5.2) Andi Simons: Permission to Read and Change my data
    This permission was not required before, and it creates a liability that prevents me from using this extension going forward. Please explain why it is suddenly needed, or simply remove it again so we can go back to using this tool.
  • (2022-10-14, v:1.5.2) John Collins: Why does this extension suddenly need access to all site's data?
    I had to disable the extension. How can I use this while working with client's salesforce orgs if the extension can read all of their data?
  • (2022-10-14, v:1.5.2) Kyle Fouts: New permission to view and change data
    I'm uncomfortable with the new permission to view and change data on Force.com sites. Why must this be changed?
  • (2022-10-14, v:2.0.11) chris light: Stopped working for scratch orgs
    This used to be great for working with multiple scratch orgs, but recently it started seeing all scratch orgs as just "SCRATCH" so it's painting all scratch orgs the same color instead of differentiating between them.
  • (2022-09-06, v:1.5.1) Todd Trevisan: The extention is now removing Favicons for all websites visited, including SFDC and non SFDC domains.
    The extention is now removing Favicons for all websites visited, including SFDC and non SFDC domains. I updated a color of a SFDC URL today and Saved and now all websites are showing the Favicon as the generic grey globe icon.
  • (2022-09-01, v:1.5.1) Miki Yoshida: Is the Max Number of SF Environments registered around 20?
    On September 1st 2022, I got a problem that the Colored Favicons did not register any Salesforce environments upon reaching around 20 registration. Is there any limit on the number of registrations for Salesforce environments in the Colored Favicons?
  • (2022-01-26, v:1.4.7) Gustavo Tandeciarz: Add support for .mil salesforce domains
    I can provide a PR if necessary. It's a minor addition to the manifest.json file to include .mil domains. "https://*.salesforce.mil/*", "https://*.force.mil/*", "https://*.visualforce.mil/*", "https://*.crmforce.mil/*"

    The colors don't work for SF orgs with My Domain and Enhanced domains turned on. Eg. https://company--name.sandbox.my.salesforce.com/. Can you please update the extension to support this url format.
  • (2021-05-20, v:1.4.5) Janet Blackwood: Can I choose the color? If so, how?
    Hello! Is it possible to choose the color for each instance? If so, how I can I do that? Thank you!
  • (2021-01-13, v:1.4.4) Barb Leung: Does seem to work ?
    I have been using the extension for 2 months now and was working fine. Now both prod and sandbox have the same color as prod. It looks like it stopped working but the shortcut on my nav menu shows the correct and different colors but not on the actual chrome tabs. Also, when I switch to classic, the correct color for sandbox shows on the tab but when switch back to lightning, the sandbox tab takes the production tab color.
  • (2020-07-30, v:1.4.4) Justin Dux: Security
    I'd like to use this app in my workplace. However, I'm sure Security will ask about the protection of our data. Can you provide me any documentation that answers this pretty basic question, "will the extension have any access to our stored record data"? Obviously, I don't really care if it accesses URL or metadata. Only the records that may contain sensitive data like PII or PHI.
  • (2020-06-05, v:1.4.2) Jessica Sharley: Getting sandbox indicator and new color for tabs with VF apps
    Greetings, love this app. In the last week or so I've noticed it assigning a new color and the S to my prod environment when the URL indicates a VF page app. We use a custom domain. This seems to be a change and makes the app much less useful. Is this a known issue or is there something I can do differently?

  • (2019-05-28, v:1.3.0) Zack Einstein: Sandbox icon being used in Production account
    I love this extension! I'm having a problem, however, with one particular organization. It is using a custom domain, and even though it's a production account, the sandbox icon is being used. I have tried clearing out the color multiple times, and it keeps using the wrong icon. Any idea how to fix that?
