Hi all,I try to show a favicon for my website, it does show in adress bar, but it doesn't show in Tab bar of FireFox, what i'm doing wrong :) . Here is the simple code and a weblink also, ctrl+click it to see that yon won't have the favicon (a small camera) in the firefox tab bar.Thx!The Webpage

<html><head><title>Test page</title><link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /><meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" /></head><body></p>Test page<p></body></html>

the code looks correct, try any/all of the following:a.) try it without the "type" attributeb.) double check your relative path to "favicon.ico" - make sure it is in the same folder of the page that you are testing.c.) make sure your ico is generated correctly here:http://www.programguru.com/otherwise, it should be fine.

Well, first of all, thx for the nice website you gave; programguru. Also, it seems to work fine now :) . Don't really know why :) , but well, thx again.If I may ask another question, what exactly type="image/x-icon" do? I searched on google, but without any good result. I used this type thing because I found it on www.w3schools website.
