<http://www.buhev.de/index.html> is a frameset definition file. In its 'head' element there is a definition for a page icon: <link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="http://www.buhev.de/img/favicon.ico"> The framed pages don't have a linked reference to an icon. According to the resolved bug #32087 this icon should be displayed in the URL bar and in the tab, but only the generic flag-icon is displayed. In my understanding if there are multiple resources displayd at once (typically in a framed situation) the <link rel="icon" ...> reference of the topmost frameset (that one that gives the URL in the URL bar) should be used and all others should be ignored. There have been discussion about the frameset issue in bug #2800 and #87428, but i can't remember what the final solution was. Greeting, Michi P.S.: This might as well be an issue of capitalisation...
After more testing: The frameset is not the problem. It is only capitalisation. <link rel="shortcut icon" ...> is OK whereas <link rel="SCHORTCUT ICON" ...> is ignored. Compare <http://www.buhev.de/seiten/archiv.html> to <http://www.buhev.de/seiten/archiv-test01.html>! This is especially problematic because multiple tutorials (eg. <http://www.favicon.com/#linkTag> and <http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/Author/dhtml/howto/ShortcutIcon.asp>) give their example with capitalized attribute value. Most web authors simply cut&pasted it from these locations.
I fixed this tonight.
