my favicon shows up in my bookmarks but not my address bar. everybody else's favicon seems to show in my address bar :(

i've got the following tag in my header:
<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="favicon.ico">

that worked fine for the old mozilla but not firefox. do i need something different?

I always put the code directly under the title tag.
Code: Select all
<title>Art-Poetry by Kiesha | Home</title>
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

Also drop the .ico file in the same folder the .html pages
are at instead of another folder. I notice its working fine
in Mozilla, but only showing up on the tabs in Firefox
and not the URL bar on your site. Mozilla isnt supporting
the .ico file in the bookmarks like Firefox is, I dont know
what the difference is tho. :roll:
Example: Kiesha's Gallery

It is a bug in Firefox. Put the favicon in the root foolder of you website and it will show up. Somehow the favicon in the default location always takes over (at least the address bar).

I saw the same flashing favicon changing back to the /favicon.ico - no way to override it.

Hopefully they will fix it.

I notice the favion isnt being displayed at all in the
bookmarks in Mozilla 1.6, Im sure they displayed in
1.4.1, tho they display fine in the url field/tabs. :roll:
