Windows 10: Favicon for one site will not display only in Edge only on my computer
Favicon for one site will not display only in Edge only on my computer
I have four browsers on my desktop running Windows 10; the favicon for UBC Botanical Garden Forums displays in Firefox, Chrome and MSIE. It does not display in Edge. That site gives me notifications on the favicon, so I want it to display. I have just installed Win 10/Edge on my laptop, and the favicon displays in Edge on that machine.
I have cleared browser history and cache at least 50 times, mostly several months ago, and then now when I have returned home to use my desktop. I have followed the instructions here How to Reinstall Microsoft Edge Browser - All things technical - tips tricks on reinstalling the browser, though I think it just hid it and made it reappear.
I noted this advice on a forum software forum:
I don't understand what this means. In Edge, when I type http://forums.botancalgarden.ca/favicon.ico into the url line, it downloads the image (to my downloads folder). There is no refreshing the path to the image where it will be accessed by the page.
I have searched my desktop for favicon.ico, but I have apparently nothing saved in a location that could be related to this site.
I believe the problem started when the site did not have a favicon. I was apparently the only user using the Edge browser during that time, as I seem to be the only person with the problem. It seems to me there must be a register setting that says "there is no favicon", and that setting needs to be removed. And it's only the Edge browser that works that way.
I wonder if your desktop has simply not updated to the latest version of Windows 10 and Edge? You can check by typing winver in the search box. Here is mine:
If you are still on a previous ver like 1024 then an update might sort out the problem.
Nope, mine looks just like yours. 1511. Thanks, though.
I have been looking how to add a site to "Top sites"in Edge. Also tried to find out in the past how to do it with IE.
In my favourites, I store many websites. But the sites I use daily, I would like to add to top sites.
I would not like to wait...
There's no HTTPS on the web address so how do I tell if it's a secure website?
Oh I just tried another website and saw the lock!
I have a NAS which gives a certificate which is not trusted and has to be added to the trusted certificate store. This is simple using Internet explorer but I can't find the way to do this using Edge.
Can anyone help?
Like, not just chrome, all chromium builds. I use SR Ware's Iron. But if you open notepad, your google searches are in there. Even if you use clicknclean and/or ccleaner... Those searches are in there, hehe... I delete this file because I don't want...
I was using the new Edge browser on my laptop today to try to find a solution to a problem and now I have a new problem. I got onto a website that put up a prompt to install some software that I don't want. The prompt only has an option to install...
