Strange LQ icon in Bookmarks Toolbar in Firefox


In the past two hours I've seen two different icons near my LinuxQuestions bookmark in the firefox toolbar. Unfortunately I cannot show the first one, but I attach an image of the second one. The strange thing is that the icon in the address bar is the classic LQ penguin. Is this some testing for new changes? Or am I drunk?

Your so lucky -- I want them too! ("Waiter, there's a fly in my soup!" "Keep your voice down, sir, or everyone will want one")

Those icons were always a bit random until starting to use FF 3.5.2 which has got them right all the time so far.

Hi catkin. So you guess this is a Firefox issue? The strange thing is that I didn't notice the icon changed until today: it was the LQ penguin as that shown in the address bar. Now the icon has changed (without restarting firefox) and the penguin is there again. Mah!

I have seen this infrequently. To me it happens when I have too many tabs open and FF has to overwork itself. Though I have also seen it happen with the BBC website on IE7 under Citrix.

We have not changed anything related to the favicon on our end.
