New favicon?

It took me forever to find the DC link in My Favorites just now, then I noticed the favicon had changed. It looks like the Sturm Ruger eagle now
Just me? I never saw anything happen like this before. And Ruger's site is not in my favorites...

Maybe it's just Internet Explorer. Mine, on Firefox is still the same.

eek! That's scary. I have Internet Explorer without Firefox and I don't have that. Mine is just an Icon that shows the letters "DC". I wonder if a virus did that or some hacker that is jealous of us

...oh wait, but I don't have DiscussCooking in my favorites. I just type a d in the address bar and then then a dropdown shows the whole thing typed out and i just click on it. It's the only thing I go to that starts with a d so it's quick. It's faster than looking through all your Favorites list.

That is so weird...
Thanks. Looks like a reboot is in order.
I'll be back.

Well, I'm back... and so is the red eagle, lol.
Oh well. I kind of like the way it looks, and now I know what to look for when scrolling through my favorites.

I haven't heard of any change to the favicon. Did you (inadvertanntly) install some new browser tool? Too many software vendors these days try to push new toolbars and such into your browser, especially IE. I don't use IE much anymore as when I load IE it takes forever as all the stuff people have installed (without asking me) loads too. Then I spend 5 minutes or so disabling these things. Ugh.

IE7 used to have a bug in it that might cause this...
Chrome and Opera have also had some similar issues. If you google wrong favicon display you'll probably find some help.

I checked on my IE and my favicon is changed there, but it's blue and white, not red like to OP's. Firefox remains the same blue & yellow DC it's always been.

It's changed on on all 3 links, Power User, Subscribed Threads, and another one I use when I want to click on New Posts, but only in IE.
