This seems to have happened a few days ago.
All of the 20 or so Desktop icons I created dragging the URL from Firefox to the desktop have no turned to the DEFAULT blank page icon.
What I have tried before:
- Ran Firefox in Safe Mode
- Deleted the ICON CACHE and rebooted so it would rebuild
- Refreshed Firefox
- Clicked on the blank icon, and dragged the URL again to the desktop. I can SEE the 'shadow' copy as having the URL image/icon in it. Get the message to REPLACE it which I do, no change, still blank.
- Clicked on the icon and then DELETED it and dragged the URL to the desktop, same thing, see and icon image in the drag, but once I release it, get the same blank page icon.
- Uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it, no change, same problem
One 'oddity', and 3 of the ones I did try I did get the URL Icon on the desktop? Do not know why only those 3 which I deleted to icon before dragging. On one, I did not delete the icon but replaced the desktop one?
One last tidbit, I had a screen lockup the day before, and booting from the Lockup (required a power off and then on) this was not when it happened, it happened some time later, maybe even 2 days later?
Sounds like a corrupt file somewhere, just don't know where? SFC and DISM were run and no problems found. Ran 2 A/V and a Malware scan, nothing found?
