    I just updated to a current version of MyIE2, and noticed that your favicon appears to be a standard vBulletin favicon. I hadn't noticed this in IE....maybe I have something switched off so that favicons don't show...? Anyways, I thought I'd mention that it looks kinda plain, and you might want to change it. You probably could have a little design contest.

    BTW: I love how MyIE2 displays the favicons right in the Tab....very nice.

    Or you could use a real web browser and favicons would always show up IE doesn't support them really.. it's an iffy thing under the best possible circumstances. I agree... not to mention I just don't like th vB favicon

    I agree, IE stinks for real support of a lot of things that have to do with web pages. Favicons being one of them.

    Mozilla is much better standards-wise.
    I prefer Firebird anyday over IE.

    Try them out and see what you think.

    I could have sworn that I am using a favicon right now...although it's never worked for me either.

    I'll fix it for WDF v4.

    It's been working for months. I have WDF bookmarked and my bookmark has been the WDF icon for ages. Makes my links bar look prettier.

    cache, cache. Always a source of problems. The icon works on Moz/IE/FireBIRD

    I've got a shortcut dragged to my desktop, sometimes the icon shows, but often its just the default web-page one.

    It works flawlessly in Firefox, and they have never worked reliably in IE for me. Safari is still showing the default vB one but its cache needs to be emptied.
