In the following MWE the title of both citations have a different format. One is italic, the other one in quotations.



    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet\autocite{yoon}, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure\autocite{aristotle:anima} dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

How can I make all "footcitations" look the same, but leave the \printbibliography output untouched.

The appearance of the title in the footnote in the authortitle-icomp is controlled by the citetitle formatting directive for a title (i.e., \DeclareFieldFormat{citetitle}{\mkbibemph{#1}}), which is then redefined for specific entry types (article, inbox , in collection, in proceedings, patent, thesis, unpublished, suppbook, suppcollection and suppperiodical).

Thus one has to refined

    If one wants the same style for all entry types, the starred version of \DeclareFieldFormat is a bit more comfortable, because it does not require one to know which types might be different. So I would use \DeclareFieldFormat*{citetitle}{\mkbibemph{#1}}.
