    Woody Lounge Bookmark Icon missing (FireFox 2.0.0.

    Forgive me if this is in the wrong place. I believe it belongs in Browser forum, but could be Lounge problem if associated with Server problems ? ! ? !

    I recently setup a couple of new computers and bookmarked the Lounge on FireFox ToolBar - however, I am getting Yahoo icon not Woody's Lounge icon next to the bookmark.

    IE 7 works fine and has the Woody's Lounge bookmark.

    Bookmark on FireFox works fine, but I see no options to change the icon.

    Any help or suggestions ?

    Interesting note, my existing computers still have the Woody's Lounge icon next to the bookmark. However, on a computer that had the correct icon, I deleted the bookmark, clsoed the browser, ran my cleaning utilites and re-booted the computer. I re-inserted the bookmark on FireFox Toolbar and received the Yahoo icon next to the book mark.

    See copy of picture below.

    My icon was blank until I visited again. Then "Lex" loaded.

    Try AM-Deadlink as per Joe's suggestion in <post:=630,860>post 630,860</post:> - I've been using it for several years now.

    The problem is not the icon is blank - but Yahoo icon is displayed.

    I have tried re-setting the browser and reloading - no luck.

    Re: Woody Lounge Bookmark Icon missing (FireFox 2.

    OK - slightly confused. The bookmark is NOT a Deadlink. I am using the Bookmark to access Woody's Lounge.

    The Woody's Lounge Bookmark was Lex on my other test computer - until I deleted it and re-loaded the bookmark on the FireFox toolbar - then the bookmark was Yahoo trademark NOT Lex icon.

    Does this mean the Lex icon for the bookmark is downloaded to the computer and saved somewhere on the computer ?

    Do I just need to download the Lex icon and save in a specified location on a directory ?

    Unlike IE, I don't know how to force FireFox to look for a bookmark icon in a specified location - or is this a registry hack for FireFox ?

    The 'icon' is known as the 'Favicon' - AM Deadlink not only checks if a bookmark is invalid, "Additionally you can download FavIcons for all your Favorites and Bookmarks"...

    There may be other ways, but using AM Deadlink is very simple!

    After several frustrating attempts of using the program after installing AM-Deadlink 3.1, I FINALLY realized, I had IE selected, NOT FireFox as the browser.

    Thanks Leif - this worked for FireFox AND IE.
