In the Daily Mail On Line entry in bookmarks in the sidebar, there is a red dot on top of the "M" icon. What does this signify please? James Hulin

Thanks for your reply however the red dot is not part of the icon. It is superimposed on top of the icon. Also, it doesn't always happen. I suggest that you go onto the Daily Mail site and see if you get it! Please also see screenshot. Regards James Hulin

I hovered over the icon and got: Home| Daily Mail Online http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/index.html I have deleted the bookmark, deleted the page from the browser, typed "Daily Mail" into Google. When the page loaded, I created a new bookmark. The red dot is no longer present. (screenshot) So I am happy but I still don't know what the red dot signified. It doesn't matter anymore! Anyway, many thanks for your trouble. James Hulin

Here's hoping it stays away. Contact the sites support and ask about it.
