Default favorites icons are substituted for your own icons whenever you clean your computer. I put my icons in a special directory and that worked with IE6. After upgrade to IE7 the icons disappear again. How is that possible? Does it depend on the site you visit or what could it be?

Hi Hans.
IE7 handles favorite icons differently then IE6 did.
The only way you can keep your favorite icons from being over-ridden by IE7 is to mark them all as hidden.
In my case, hiding them was a three step proccess for each icon. It may not be that way for you however.
Clear your browser cache and history. Mark all you're favorites as hidden with your preffered icons. If it doesn't "Stick", i'll post the method so it does. It's a time consuming pain in the arse.

Yeah, HItSquad.

I ended up creating a folder and putting all of the favicons in it,

and then "pointing" each favorite item

to the appropriate favicon in that folder.

Lot of effort just to make that little graphic look the way I wanted for each favorite item.

Hi John
I tried that too and it didn't work for me. Everybody seems to be having different luck.
After spending several hours getting it like I wanted it (menu back up top, dump the search field, hiding icons, ect, etc), I still ended up removing it because I hate those ugly grey menus. I use custom bitmaps to color my menus in IE6. IE7 doesn't use bmp's anymore either. Until it gets skinned, MS can have it. I'll stick to Opera for security.

Interesting, HS.

I actually did all that while running IE6, and just realized that it kept all that information when I updated to IE7.

I like being lucky - much easier than being smart!

:thumbsup:
