So far I have only found 2 sites where the favicon works (slashdot.org and linuxfr.org), and since those 2 are linux zealotry^Wadvocacy sites I guess it could have something to with the software used to create the icon. (I just noticed that it works on apple.com too) I created a new profile to make sure and the result was the same Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. I downloaded and installed Mozilla 1.5rc1 2. I created a new profile 3. I opened tabs for google.com / cnn.com / mozilla.org / slashdot.org / linuxfr.org Actual Results: The favicon only worked for the last 2 sites Expected Results: It should have worked for all of them No such problem on my Firebird build Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030917 Firebird/0.6.1+
Mozilla, unlike firebird, does not follow IE's lead in hitting up every site for a "/favicon.ico". If the page explicitly includes a <link rel="shortcut icon">, we show the icon that points to, but we don't go looking at random files in hopes of maybe finding an icon. Amusing that the mozilla.org rewrite got rid of the <link> element that used to be there....
