This may or may not be "community assistance"- move if appropriate.<br><br>
I use firefox, and like to use skins where I can reduce my bookmark bar to a series of icons w/o text.<br><br><br><br>
I can't remember what changed that forced this to happen- maybe an upgrade in firefox, or when I had to re-install it, but now, my little leaf that represented VB is a Y! (Yahoo) symbol. (Some of my other sites are now generic instead of their old icons, too.)<br><br><br><br>
Just wondering if anyone else had this happen, and if the little icons need to be upgraded on some sites. (I want my leaf back!)<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/9/9a/9a6ec729_vbattach4662.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/9/9a/525x525px-LL-9a6ec729_vbattach4662.jpeg" style="width:344px;height:160px;"></a>

What Thalia is calling the URL icon is more generally known as the favorites icon or simply the favicon. The typical file is named <b>favicon.ico<br><br></b><br><br>
Here is a good article about favicons and how to make sure they are easily available and findable on your website:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.thesitewizard.com/archive/favicon.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.thesitewizard.com/archive/favicon.shtml</a>

Thanks Joe, I was wondering what they are called. I noticed that a lot of skins for Firefox do not allow the icons from the site. They just make them all uniform to match the skin. I'm using mini fox which allows all different one.
