I think that's the reason why, anyway, but I'm not 100% sure.
I know that ctrl shift r is definitely NOT a 100% solution though.
These tabs are locked to the lefthand side of your tab bar and stay in place, even when you open a new window or relaunch the browser.
The default behavior is to display the first letter of the site’s name on a color from the site’s theme.
Favicons are not stored in the cache, they're stored in one of the SQLite databases. This is a good thing since all your bookmarks would lose their icons until you visited them again.
Favicons DELETE FROM favicons WHERE id IN ( SELECT icon_id FROM icon_mapping WHERE page_url LIKE '%localhost:%' ); DELETE FROM favicon_bitmaps WHERE icon_id IN ( SELECT icon_id FROM icon_mapping WHERE page_url LIKE '%localhost:%' ); DELETE FROM icon_mapping WHERE page_url LIKE '%localhost:%' ; Actually all you need is to browse to com/and you will see the cached old icon, click refresh (ctrl R) or (ctrl F5) and you will see the new one. Testresults: In all likelihood the 'Favicons' file located in "C:\Users(User name)\App Data\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default" will show a file size much lower (~20-30k) than the one you saved into the exported file folder. Just remember to check the file size of the default 'Favicons' file every once in awhile, especially after adding new bookmarked webpages. For ease of recovering future lost icons add these two file locations to the Windows explorer's Favorites bar: a) 'Chrome bookmarks' b) "C:\Users(User name)\App Data\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default" PS in future use a browser history cleaner utility i.e. Avoid using chrome's History cleaning feature Looked through suggestions to change “stuck” favicons in my bookmarks bar.
You begin by adding some simple markup for the pin graphic.
It’s literally one line of code in the is used to draw the vector shape contained in the file (the background color for the tab changes depending on whether the browser window is active and if it’s selected.) The documentation states that the graphic should be a vector shape filled with black.
In fact, we began this exercise by just exporting our standard logo into SVG; it’s shown to the left. And it is, until you upload the file on your site and see your beautiful artwork rendered down into a 16×16 bitmap (or 32×32 on a Retina display.) Our first attempt is shown to the right. Of course, at such a small size, a hand-tuned bitmap graphic would be a better choice.
The ubiquitous has been around since Internet Explorer 5 was introduced in 1999.
If you work on a site with a strong branding element, you’ll want to customize the icon on the pinned tab.
Anthony Piraino and I have been working on one for the Iconfactory and would like to share some of the things we learned.
