I'm on the latest branch nightlies (moox versions). I still have no html file icon (XP), just the default Windows application icon.

Is this a problem for others? Why is this a problem only for FF? (Or just for me?)

Is this going to be fixed before the 1.0 release?

Thanks.

I'm having this problem with XP.
I don't know how it should work and what is causing this.
Now what happens in my system:

explorer.exe QueryKey HKCR\FirefoxHTML
Name: \REGISTRY\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\FirefoxHTML

explorer.exe QueryValue
HKCR\htmlfile\ShellEx\IconHandler\(Default) "{42042206-2D85-11D3-8CFF-005004838597}"

explorer.exe QueryValue HKCR\CLSID\{42042206-2D85-11D3-8CFF-005004838597}\Old Icon\htmlfile\DefaultIcon\(Default) SUCCESS "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe,1"

HTML files have a Firefox icon for me. Firefox 0.10.1 on Windows XP SP2. Maybe it's something with the nightlies?

I'm using official Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10.1 and XP PRO SP1a

I did some testing and the result is that registry key
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htmlfile\ShellEx\IconHandler
overrides Firefox document icon.

Delete key
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htmlfile\ShellEx\IconHandler
and restart Explorer. IE icon is gone and Firefox document icon is used for html files.

I don't have an Explorer icon, I have a default application icon. Is that what you had?

XP.

I tried the above and doesn't work for me. I still have no icon for html files.

In the registry under .html it says firefoxhtml. Under that it has my current nighly location. Under view/filetypes it shows the firefox icon as selected. Under html files properties is shows firefox selected again.

I also have reg entries for Mozillahtml, and MozillaXHTML. Are they still needed? (I don't use Mozilla suite.)

Any ideas???

I think this is that bug
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171349
It is a old bug. I hope they fix it, makes Firefox very unprofessional looking.

No, I have the upper left icon on FF. Only html files have no icon.
