Favicon not showing up in IE


When browsing in Internet Explorer, my favicon.ico doesn't load.


A few solutions for this problem.

  • Add the page to your favorites. If you already have the page in your favorites folder, remove it and add it again.
  • Make sure the icon file is called favicon.ico and it is placed in the root folder of your web server.
  • Make sure the path to the favicon in the header of your page is absolute, not relative.
  • Delete your temporary Internet files. If the folder with temporary files has reached its maximum, the favicon may not be used.
