Why does my E-Group tab show an ebay logo!?

In IE, my tab for E-Group is today showing the ebay logo to the left of "Olympus UK E-System User Group" rather than the usual white on black "E UK" square logo.

It's fine in Chrome, just IE that has this problem. It was OK yesterday!

Anyone????

If you are using Windows7 (& if you are talking about a desktop shortcut), then that is part of its annoyances. Other than that, I'm not sure what you could be refering to.

It's Vista business. I'm referring to the tabs at the top of IE, one for each web page open. Yesterday the E-Group tab showed "E UK" logo, today it shows the ebay logo!!??

If I use Google Chrome browser instead, its tabs show the "E UK" logo correctly.

David,
In your IE session do you have this site listed in your favourites? If so list your favorites(as IE has it) and right click the E group entry. Select Properties and you can then change the icon. It's probably been caused by some small corruption either in Vista or IE.

No, I don't have it saved in favourites. So I've just saved it and gone into properties and the logo there IS the correct one.

Here's the Google Chrome version showing the correct logo on the tab, as it was on IE yesterday:





And here's the IE page, with the ebay logo on the E-Group tab:





Just notice the "g" for Google has changed also????????

Weird! All done to create a feeling of panic and an uncertainty as to whatever else is wrong on your computer!

And, for the same reason, suddenly I can't add any smilies to this post. I suppose all because I set Norton Utilities to do a clean up, etc. of my hard disk.

I'll try turning it off and on again!

David,
You could try deleting your browser history. In IE select Tools - Internet Options - Browsing History and press the Delete radio button. If you are using IE9 then Microsoft have just released a security update for IE9 KB2722913. That might have been the cause of the change - in error.
My google icon is the same as the one you've displayed so I wouldn't worry about that.

Turning it off and on again sorted it!

There were 10 Microsoft updates installed so something there may have fixed it?

Anyway, I'm doing some scans now to make sure no gremlins have got in!

I've logged out of the forum and also restarted Windows, checked that the option for disabling 'smilies' is not ticked and still no 'smilies'. I'm not smiling!

Tell me more?

I've only just found Chrome but keep using IE as I'm used to it.

What's special about Firefox?

Re: Why does my E-Group tab show an ebay logo!?

Plenty of bugs in Firefox! On my desktop I reverted back to IE for various glitchy type reasons, I don't get any real problems nowadays. There's no bug free software. I've played around with Chrome and Opera as well. Not much to pick between them really, but then I'm not a member of the anti-Microsoft club. I am a bit of a bitch though, I'm using Firefox right now on my XP Netbook.

Some Firefox bugs

FWIW The daft Icon problem has happened to me once, I can't remember what I did about it. Sounds like a caching issue and these can sometimes be fixed by "Ctrl-F5"

Apparently, the latest version of Firefox needs a new version of Real Player downloaded it and, whoopee, "smilies" are back, so :rolle yes:, etc., etc.

Also, I can now watch downloaded You Tube videos etc.,which had suddenly ceased to function.

FIREFOX RULES!
