    Not all that serious question

    So, using Firefox.
    Bookmarked CF, of course.

    For all time up to this week the little icon in the Bookmarks drop down was the CF logo (red squiggly C and F in the form of a cyclone).
    A couple day ago it changed to a stupid white check in a blue box.

    So here's the question:

    Hows come did it do that? Can I get the CF logo back? I'm trained to spot that and it's tough to retrain an old person.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Re: Not all that serious question

    It did that for me within the last week in both Firefox and Safari (and maybe Chrome, I don't remember for sure).

    This morning, for some reason, on its own it is back to normal in Firefox and Safari. But it still isn't in Chrome.

    On another site I visit I had the same issue for years. They similarly have one of the coolest icons (I think cuneiform for liberty or something like that, Online Library of Liberty - Front Page, looks like the fletching on an arrow). Instead of the really cool icon, it was something really ugly. At first I thought I had a virus or something that caused it to change. Even when it was the correct icon in a particular browser for quite awhile, sometimes it would go back to the ugly one on its own -- as if it got transferred from one browser to another, from visiting the site in both. (Furthermore, the ugly one I think was the regular icon for a different site I used to visit.) But then it did it again on a new computer, so it didn't appear to be a virus or some glitch on my end. Actually, on the new computer it did it in Safari but not Firefox (where it was always fine). For some unknown reason, I think after the latest release of Safari (for Mac) a few months ago, it seems permanently OK in it now as well. As this went on for years, though, I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen again.

    I have nothing to contribute to your check mark issue, as I have it also. But instead I pose my own question back to you...

    Bookmarked? I mean just bookmarked? CF isn't good enough to be your homepage?

    Re: Not all that serious question

    I have the check mark too, isn't it a "v" for v bulletin?

    Re: Not all that serious question

    This IS a big deal. If you know who doesn't come here this will be the reason he'll give on Twitter. Fan site doesn't even have a proper favicon? No thanks.

    Re: Not all that serious question

    It is called a favicon. And it is set by the site. My guess is during the recent maintenance, it got reset to the vbulletin default. It should be a simple fix for Chris or whoever to do, when they get around to it.

    But I have been on mobile more than desktop, so I don't notice that often.

    This changed for me on my chrome browser a couple of days (maybe a week or week and a half?) ago.

    It was gone for a while but should be back now. You might have to clear your cache.
