Maybe I wasn't clear enough........
How do I preserve original website icons when I drag a shortcut from my browsing session to the Desktop?
Every time the Desktop shortcut icon of the website which I'm working with changes to the orange fox holding the Earth.
If you drag a link or favicon on the left end of the location bar onto the desktop to create an internet shortcut then that shortcut gets the icon of the default browser.
If you want a different icon (favicon) then you have to assign that icon yourself to the desktop shortcut (right-click: Properties).
You can usually get the favicon if you append "favicon.ico" to the main domain of a website (e.g. http://www.mozilla.com/favicon.ico ) to display the favicon in a tab and save that image to a folder or see if you can find it in "Tools > Page Info > Media".
Thank you. That's what I was looking for.
P.S. Happy New Year
