User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9 I have changed all appropriate file types to display the Firefox icon. When I add the "LINKS" option to the Windows task bar (Windows XP, Build 2600.xpsp2.020422-1633 : Service Pack 1), all the links that DO NOT have a favicon show up with an Internet Explorer icon. Inside Firefox, all bookmarks without a favicon show up as a "blank page with the corner folded down" which I believe is the default. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: I don't have multiple machines to reproduce bug on.
Update: the favicon is not displayed either, my bad. Also when the links bar is displayed in windows explorer, the behavior is the same -- the IE icon is displayed and not the Firefox icon.
if your OS has the settings, but doesn't change the icon association, you might have to reboot/rebuild your icon cache. Either way, its not a Firefox bug.
sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs, filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change
