Hi,

first posting here.

i was wondering if I could use the same mini icon specifying one site to be displayed when i bookmark another site.

Specifically: the little orange man logo for Cingular
http://www.cingular.com/index_welcome

I have the following site bookmarked in my "bookmarks toolbar folder," so that it shows up on my Firefox browser as a toolbar all the time, but without any associated icons.

https://www.attwireless.com/

Is there a way that i can bookmark
https://www.attwireless.com/ to show the little Cingular logo when I go to the
https://www.attwireless.com/ site?

Thanks,

Thanks,

what your talking about i believe is called the favicon or somthing like that. and yes there is a way to do it...how im not sure. i know if you could find the location and the target of the favicon then you could change it to your liking, but as of now, im not sure. maybe if you do a google search on how they work and where they are located you could find out what your looking to do.

so you don't own either site, but you just want the favicon for one to appear for the other?

thats pretty much what he's asking, i dont see a problem with its, its just a small graphic that he likes that he would like to see show up on his other favorites list. hell if i knew how i would like to use some sites favicons that i have seen on some other favorites.

Hi,

yeah, i don't own either site. What I would like to do is to just have little favicons in my "links" toolbar (in IE) or "bookmarks toolbar folder" in firefox, without accompanying text. just the images/favicons, no text.

i guess after cingular bought up AT&T, they decided they don't want to spend money on a favicon for AT&T, or they decided to keep the entities separate to get more customers or something.....

Just a small thing, I was just curious if there was a way to accomplish that from my computer, just affecting my browser's appearance.

as far as using an existing favicon from another site and using it on yours, couldn't you do something like "print screen," save as ".ico" with the tools available, and insert it into your own site?

I haven't tried this, but I think it should work.
First go find the icon you want
http://www.cingular.com/favicon.ico
save it somewhere convenient

then in Internet Explorer:
open favourites
right click on the one you want
click properties
on the 'web document' tab choose 'change icon'
click browse
find the file you want to use

Can't find the option in Firefox tho.

Thanks DaveSW. That's very helpful. Hmmm, i'm kind of starting to use firefox more now due to all the security reasons - as far as i can tell, they don't have that option...

thanks again,

thanks again,

security with any OS or Browser is just a myth, trust me, the only reason firefox isknown to be more secure is because the number of users on it compared to IE is tiny, so when people go to write a virus they target the larger base of people. Why would someone spend time writing a virus for somthing that only had a tiny population when they could write one for somthing that had a HUGE population. and the same goes for firefox ;).


but thats not what this thread is about.
