Yep -- IE is goofy about it. I included the workaround in the link above, but even that isn't completely effective.

I think I had heard awhile back that it was microsoft that kinda came up with the idea in the first place. Is that true?

I believe it is true.....
Makes you wonder when they don't even support their own ideas properly....

It was Microsoft's creation. But think about it. What would you rather have in the address bar or favorites file? Your icon, or someone elses? I think they wrote that glitch on purpose.

:lol:
Worryingly I believe it.

Hacker007, yes you can! It's an ico file, which is the normal windows icon format. You should be able to get a free editor, or if not a trial version from http://www.download.com

Well, here's the deal. The way I understand M$ did it, is that the favicon is stored in the temporary internet files. So as a result whenever you clear your temp files, or the favicon file expires from cache, guess what happens? The favicon disappears. I find it very difficult to believe that they would not have known that this would happen. That's why I say I think they did it that way on purpose. They could have just as easily done it the way Mozilla and Netscape did and made it permanent.
