FAVORITES AND BOOKMARKS

WHERE'D MY COOL FAVORITES ICONS GO?

The Annoyance:

When I add a web site to IE's Favorites menu, a cool icon often comes along for the ride, such as the red Y! logo for Yahoo! The icons stay on my Favorites menu for a while and then suddenly disappear, never to return. How can I make them stay?

The Fix:

Every time you add a site to your Favorites list, Internet Explorer sees whether the site has defined a favicon for itself (like the red Y!). If the favicon is there, Internet Explorer stores it in your temporary Internet files cache, and it shows up on your Favorites list.
