    ... "New tab" (Ctrl+T) and has some icon on it, the most recent version was just a blank tab (without the icon)...
    Actually, I've currently got 1511 running on my test machine and can check that. The same icon is on the New Tab, but it only shows when you hover the mouse over it.

    Edwin - great info, good to know. I'm pretty sure that will make TravelMan happy (?) - for me, this is some valuable intel. Did not know this specific one and I've been around the block for Windows.
    - again, thanks for this post....

    K, a couple users asked me for exact steps so, here they are: (refer to above screenshots if need be)
    (Please Note: The file you'll be modifying is a System file, albeit only the image library part of the file, yet, ensure to follow the steps carefully)

    Download and install Resource Hacker

    Download blank .ico file and save it to your Desktop

    You'll need to be signed on to your PC as Administrator
    Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 (Use extra caution when toying around in System folders!!!)
    find ieframe.dll, right click and Take Ownership of it, then copy it to your Desktop
    on your Desktop, right click the copied ieframe.dll and choose Open with Resource Hacker
    In the RH window, expand the Icon Group tree and scroll down and click on 31062 : 1033, look on the right, make sure it's the image you want to replace,
    right click on 31062 : 1033 and choose Replace Icon ..., click on Open file with new icon..., navigate to the blank ico you downloaded and saved to your Desktop and select it,
    click Replace on the lower right,
    on the Resource Hacker menu, click File then Save, it will save a modified copy to your Desktop as well as an original copy in case you want to revert changes, (save them somewhere safe). You can now close Resource Hacker.
    go back to System32, showing file extensions, you'll need to rename ieframe.dll to ieframe.old, click Yes on the If you change a file......, then merge the new modified one to the folder,
    click Continue for Admin privileges, you'll end up with this:
