On my favourites page bit, where I have the shortcuts to my favourite sites, I would usually have an icon next to it which related to the actual site. I thought this was great, but now for some reason the icons for all the sites have changed and are of Martin Lewis's face (him from moneysavingexpert.com).
Now, I like Martin but quite frankly I don't want his face as all the icons and it's getting on my nerves a bit now.
I've right clicked on the site name and gone into properties and there is a bit for change icon but I don't know which files to look under for the correct icons.
In the end, I tried to change it to a star icon which worked until I clicked on the site in the favourite bit but Martin came back. Even now in the address bar I have Martin's face in front of the mumsnet web address.
If anyone knows what I'm talking about! I would appreciate some help. Thanks
The icons are called favicons apparently. I have looked it up adn it seems that a lot of people are having this problem and there is some advice but it's a bit technical for me so I don't know what they're talking about.
If anyone has some favicon help for dummies, I would be very grateful!!
By some miracle it's all gone back to normal!! Yaay! I cleared the cache (which I have found out means the temporary internet files, history, and cookies) and after I rebooted, it was all back to normal - no more Martin Lewis .
