2 browsers questions ?

I like Firefox's way to automatically catch and sore favicons for each site I visit, but where does it store them ? Can't find them anywhere... :(

I'd like to set IE back to default browser, but it doesn't work... I unchecked in Firefox the option to check for this at startup, I check again this option in IE, but no go... Firefox remains the default browser....:confused:

Thank you for your help ;)

In IE under "Tools", then "Options", then "Programs" there's a checkbox at the bottom..."Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser"...did you put a checkmark in that box? Not sure about the Firefox question.

Yes, the box is checked in IE... but does not perform its job...:eek:

Do the control panel add remove programs and click set access program defaults and set everything 'microsoft windows' click o.k. making sure you check ie as default browser.

Thanx Perris, Lee ;)

a mix of the two et voila ;)
Actually, Start > Set Program Access and Defaults > Custom > Choose a Default Web browser did the trick :D

What about Firefox and favicons ? Anyone ?

Nope, nothing there... :(
But I found the trick, I go to a chosen site with a favicon using Opera, I then search *.ico on c:\ and find the favicon I wanted in one of the various cache folders of Opera.
Next I copy it in a chosen folder and am free to modify for good a link in IE6 links bar :)
How Firefox handles favicons is a total mystery to me...
