Today I have noticed it for the first time.. The icon use to look like a blank page with a mini firefox icon on it.. Now the htm and html icon looks like a blank white page that is bent on the top right hand corner.. I tried a firefox reset and it didn't help.. I don't wanna do a reinstall of firefox because I want to keep the old firefox download manager and not the new one that is on the right of the search bar.. ( I saw it on my ubuntu linux computer) BUT my computer with the html file icon problem is Windows 7 x64
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you right-click one of those desktop icons, then
Properties > Web Document tab > "Change Icons" button
Does the dialog show that it is using icons from the firefox.exe file:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe
If it shows some other program or file, then you could change it back in this dialog, or perhaps Firefox is no longer your default browser??
By the way, what do you mean about the new download manager?? That might be a change to an add-on rather than a built-in feature. If it's a problem, you could post a new thread about it or maybe add a screen shot in a reply here.
Try to rebuild the Windows icon cache.
Verify in Windows Explorer that you can see the IconCache.db file before doing the above mentioned steps because the IconCache.db file may be a hidden file.
You can disable the new download manager with the drop down list by setting the browser.download.useToolkitUI pref to true on the about:config page.
Can you attach a screenshot?
Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.
Here is a screenshot of a ".html" file icon that i am currently seeing.. I did the icon cache rebuild thing but that didn't help.. I use to see a little firefox icon on the icon..
I would like to see in which place(s) that you see that icon.
Can you attach a screenshot that shows the context where you see that icon.
I see that white icon on any .htm and .html document saved on my computer. On the .url files I see the icon that i use to see on htm and html files.. The image attached now is the icon of a .url file.
