Reply to: Favicons in WebHelp

Some browsers only support the favicon when it is served from a web server, not from your local machine.

This seems to be the issue I'm having. I uploaded to a test server and both IE and Chrome display the favicon in the tab. Chrome doesn't seem to support the favicon in the address bar, but IE does and it's working there, too.

As for Firefox, I've read that favicons often show up after the user loads the page several times. There's not much more I can do for FF users. Judging from all the “Missing favicon” threads, I'll be watching for FF9's release to see what changes Mozilla makes in support of favicons.

Thanks for all the research!
