Okay - I've followed the directions found at every site I can find, including BC, about favicon creation and coding. I've tried every method I found, but the favion will still not show up in Firefox, or any other browser, for that matter. I know I must have done something wrong, but I can't figure out what.

 

The icon is 16x16px in size, in 24 bit color. I've tried placing it in both the root directory of the site, in the images folder (with corresponding coding for the location), and every code snippet I can find.

 

Any ideas?

Please disregard. It now shows up - server lag, perhaps?

This thread might no longer be alive, but I often find I need to use several variations of the "link rel" line in the <head>  section, to cater for all browsers.

This is what I have in my website and it works across all modern browsers (IE, Chrome, FF, Opera, even Safari ... Vivaldi too for peeps who like to use Beta browsers)

 
<link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="http://www.website.com/favicon.ico" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

 

Please disregard. It now shows up - server lag, perhaps?

 

Your browser will cache the favicon the first time it loads the page. Seems quite arduous to remove too, I remember clearing cache / cookies a lot of times and seeing no result ... and then suddenly the thing appears! I think that might have something to do with the Header set Cache Control, which for .ico files is often set to something quite high.
