Can't see favicon.ico

www or not www

Hello,

sorry if this is a simple question but I am new.

why would the favicon appear at http://mysite.com/favicon.ico but not at http://www.mysite.com/favicon.ico ?

If those two urls point at the same site, it may be a caching issue. Your web browser still remembers the "old" or none favicon.

when I change the picture on the site it changes on both of them

Try the site in a browser you have never used before. Be sure you have the favicon specified correctly in your html code.

It works in Saffari, does that help?

Then it is what I said before - browser cache.

okay thanks for all you help here. Maybe another dumb question but how do I get it to work - I cleared temp internet files but still not working?

Depends on browser, but I simply would not care about it. Try access the favicon directly and refresh it. But anyway, what you do would have no effect on visitors of your web, so I am not sure it is worth worrying about it.
