Internet Explorer 7 Favicon Display Problem

by: havascript.com admin // October 30, 2007   ( ) {

It was unusually difficult finding a solution to the IE7 favicon display issue, but I finally cobbled one together on my own,… at least it works for me. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but it works.

Make sure that you have a valid favicon.ico icon file and that it is uploaded in the root directory.

First, add the following meta tag in the <head> portion of your document:
<link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”http://your-domain.com/favicon.ico” />
This is needed in most cases for Firefox too.

Next, delete IE7’s history and temporary files cache (Tools > Internet Options)

Lastly, close all open sessions of IE7 and restart your browser. You should see your favicon now.

I’ve had to do this on numerous browsers on various machines and it has always worked for me. Why,… I don’t know…
