Can't Get Favicon.ico To Work

I've created a 16x16 favicon for my blog. I started with a 16x16 bitmap image that I renamed to "favicon.ico". Next, I uploaded this to the directory /doggydiaries/favicon.ico. My blog is located at http://www.doggydiaries.pudgypuppy.com/, so I put the favicon in the /doggydiaries/ directory.

 

When I view my blog, however, the favicon is noticeably absent. Instead, there's just a blank space where it should be displayed. Any idea how to fix this problem?

 

Thanks!

Thanks, I see it now, too. I don't know what the problem was because I had tried refresh when I didn't see it the first time. I guess it was a caching issue on my local machine...

I can't get it to show in my Firefox despite numerous refreshes. I had that problem when I used a favicon.ico. It would show up just fine in IE but never did display in Firefox. Bummer. :lol:

For bunni and danceswithscissors,

 

What version of Firefox are you running? I'm at work, and my install of Firefox is v0.8. This is the one that I had to clear the cache and history before being able to see the favicon.

 

:lol:

Kasey, I cleared my cache and it shows up just dandy in Firefox 0.9.2. Cute! :lol:

 

I removed my favicon.ico because it was linked to a favicon website and the hits were throwing my stats off.
