Windows bookmark icon

    Sometimes the bookmark for this Physics Forum has a square root icon that shows up in my Favorites list. But other times the icon is generic looking, like most of the other icons in my Favorites. What makes it change?

    Thanks. I am using IE. Do you know of any downside to Firefox?

    Some online banking sites only work with IE. I personally haven't had any trouble with this, but it is a problem to some. Also Windows updates only works with IE. But this isn't such a big deal since you can't get rid of IE anyway. Just run IE when you need to update windows.

    The icon is actually the generic vBulletin icon. It's not a square root, it's a vee.

    Also, most browsers don't save the site icons on disk -- the first time you look at the site, its icon will be downloaded and stored for that session. The next time you start the browser up, though, it'll be gone again. I think Firefox does this too.

    Vee, okay. But I will say it is a vee with an extra bar sticking out to the left from the left prong of the vee, and with the right prong being taller than the left prong.

    With IE, my fancier bookmark icons eventually turn into lower case "e"s until I clear things out and start over.
