    Not a pressing issue, but does anyone know if or how the old Google favicon in the Firefox search box (graphic 1) can be updated to the new Google favicon (graphic 2)? I'm using Firefox 3.0.11.

    Thanks, Mike. That's exactly what I wanted. Worked like a charm.

    Even though the old doesn't bother me, I was curious and tried the fix. So far, it didn't work for me - I've still got the old displaying.

    Just for safety, I renamed the old file and THEN put the replacement .xml in the directory, restarted Fx and when it doesn't show the new, I tried again. Shutdown Fx, emptied the cache and deleted all Google cookies. No soap. Don't know whassup but just in case someone else tries and has a problem.

    Yes and no. Both issues involve favicons but they are separate problems.

    The prior issue was a problem in getting my favicon to display properly in a tab. The current problem (since resolved) involved the narrower issue of changing someone else's search favicon.

    I notice in Post 783086 that you resolved the issue of displaying the new Google favicon in the search bar. Did you have to jump through any major hoops to fix this?

    I think I may be guilty of having a Doh! moment about this, Al. It may have been your upgrade to Firefox 3.5 that corrected the the issue for you.

    Upgrading to Firefox 3.5 certainly updated the Google icon for me.
