I think the icon changed when I set FF as default browser, I don't know why it did that but I can't get the original back. I have tried right-clicking on icon - properties - change icon, but it won't go back. I have one in the task bar and also programs. They look like a piece of paper showing a window with icons in it. lol Using Windows 7 I hope someone can help. Thank you so much :)

Try to rebuild the Windows icon cache.

  • Open the Task Manager (Shift+Ctrl+ESC)
  • In the Process tab, right-click on the Explorer.exe process and select End Process.
  • Open the file picker via "File > New Task (Run)" and click the Browse button.
  • Type or Paste %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local in the File name field (AppData is a hidden folder).
  • Select the IconCache.db file and use "Delete" in the right-click context menu to delete the file.
  • After the IconCache.db file has been deleted, start a new explorer.exe process via "File > New Task" to get the desktop and Taskbar back.

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. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Show_hidden_files_and_folders
