PF Logo Change: New or Just Noticed?

In summary: something about the PF site itself. I don't think so. I have similar shells on all of them, at least in terms of color schemes. It could be different ways the browsers display colors though. There are other differences in how the site appears on various PC browsers (IE vs Firefox, for example), so I suspect it's more inherent...something about the PF site itself.

Is it new, or did I just not notice before? Up next to the URL in the address bar, and in the tab too, the PF logo is now green when it used to be blue. I wonder if it just changed...I had a momentary glitch posting about a minute or two ago, and then noticed the changed icon.

I thought the blue in Physics had gotten darker, but I just got a new monitor, my old one had such a dark filter I could barely make out colors.

I still have the standard blue V-bulletin icon. It used to be a custom PF one a few months back and then alternated between the two but now its always the V-bulletin.

I've got the new blue-and-green icon too, in both Firefox the URL bar and in the tab, though the icon in the tool-bar is the same old blue symbol.

Oh, nevermind, I only have the IE icon. The colors in the banner changed for me due to the new monitor.

Which one of us? Which is supposed to be the current icon?

Oh, is the F blue? I had to tilt the monitor to see that...it all looked green at first, but I have a glare on my screen right now.

The F should be green just like the header graphic. Clear your cache, close all browsers and then reload PF.

Ahh right better now. :smile:

So the new icon I'm seeing is still an old one? :rolleyes:

Okay, how do I clear the cache in Firefox? I can't find it anywhere...I'm sure I'm staring right at it, but I'm not seeing it.

Edit: I tried reload, which according to Firefox's help is supposed to do that, closed firefox, opened it again, opened PF, reloaded again, and I still see the same thing. I swear, this is a new icon for me, but the F isn't green. What I see is a dark green P, and a dark blue F, and above and below those is a double line, blue on the outside and green on the inside (i.e., closest to the letters).

Edit 2: Aha, found it! Okay, that's so weird. Even the "old" icon was new to me! That's weird that changing it made the old one show up for me when I don't think I've seen anything but the default little blue ball until today. Well, actually, I still don't see a green F. Now I see an all blue PF, with a green line above and a blue line below. :confused:

Doesn't work on IE.

The colors are much more distinct, and match Greg's description better, when viewed with Safari on a Mac. The blue and green both look very dark, to the point of looking black, when I'm viewing with Firefox (though the colors are clearer in the tab, so it's not just monitor color settings).

Could it be the contrast between different browser colours like an optical illusion? I don't have the other browsers so sorry if that's a stupid suggestion.
