    Since no one in the FireFox forum or FAQ's has been able to answer this question, I thought I would give this incredible forum a try. Here goes.....

    When I save a webpage in My Documents, the icon created is the FireFox icon for each page saved. Somehow these icons changed and now look like a generic icon.

    Is there a way to place the FireFox icon back to distinguish the web pages saved?

    Thanks for any advice provided.

    Just a guess, however are the saved pages set to open with firefox? I just checked with my system and it saves it with a little FF icon.

    Try making Firefox your default browser and set it to check at startup.

    Tools>options>general.

    Also, right click a Firefox shortcut>properties>shortcut tab>change icon button.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

    crjdriver - Yes, the saved pages are set to open with firefox.

    mike5532g - Yes, Firefox is my default browser. Thanks for your suggestion. The right click/properties/change icon worked. Why didn't I think of that?

    asdfqwerty - Thanks for your suggestion. Since Mike's suggestion worked, I didn't get a chance to try the tweakui fix, but I am going to review it.

    What a great forum! Thanks again for the suggestions and the fix.
