When I'm at my favorite website and I want to display their favicon.ico I cannot with RC2 2.0. For example, I type
I expect the favicon.ico image to display as an image, but it only display a bunch of characters.
Not every site has a favicon and that site apparently is one of them.
No this is my own website and the favicon display just fine using IE. Could you verify if RC2 2.0 displays a favicon.ico as described in my first post? If your nit running the RC2 then could you verify it displays in any other version.
Since when did IE show Favicons? I just checked in IE and ther is nothing there but the 'boring' folder with an E on it.
If that link is correct then that icon should show in any Fx version by clicking that link.
So that url redirects to http://www.domain.com/_css/ddc-style.css.php
So here is my dilemma. Lets say that I want to display the favicon.ico at google, I can type:
the favicon is displayed. But on my forum when I try that with Firefox RC2 all I see is a bunch of characters. If I try it with IE on my forum no problem. Another bit of information, Firefox displays the favicon on other websites correctly as with my example on Google.
"But on my forum when I try that with Firefox RC2 all I see is a bunch of characters"
So what is the (complete) url of your forum?
Now try it on your forum with IE and it will show the favicon.
Perhaps there is a server setting to fix this? I'm running CentOS Linux 4.1.
You didn't give the forum url, so could you please do that?
It is possible to specify the favicon in the source code.
I prefer not to give out my forum, but I think I have narrowed it down to a centos problem. Try this:
notice that with firefox all you get are a bunch of characters, but with IE it displays the favicon correctly.
That icon is send as text/plain and Fx displays it as text.
You can save it (File > Save Page as) and then it will display correct if you open in Fx or an image viewer.

Thanks again dickvl,
I really appreciate the time you spent helping me resolve this problem. Adding this to my htaccess file did the trick:
AddType image/vnd.microsoft.icon .ico
