Icons change on IE tabs when using tabbed browsing

    I've recently begun experiencing issues with the icons assigned to a site
    being changed on the tabs during tabbed browsing. For example, when clicking
    on NOAA on my favorites bar to look at weather from the NOAA site, I began
    getting the Wells Fargo icon on those tabs. The icon is still okay on my
    favorites bar, but now consistently shows the WF icon on tabs. I tried
    reassigning a new icon to NOAA, and it seemed okay for a while, but now I'm
    back to getting WF icons on NOAA tabs. This morning I had a lot of tabs open
    and suddenly my Fidelity icon was replaced by the Yahoo icon on my tab. It
    was very quickly replaced by the News Public Radio NPR icon. This is
    extremely frustrating as I am a very visual person and I rely heavily on the
    icons when moving between tabs, which I do a lot. I enjoy using the tabs for
    the most part, but will have to stop using them if this continues. Is there
    a fix planned for this?

    Hi,
    Assuming IE7 or IE8...
    On the Delete Browsing History screen (Internet Options> General> Browsing
    history> Delete) uncheck "Preserve Favorites website data."

    Then clear the Temporary Internet Files. This will delete all Favicons. They
    will be re-downloaded on your next visit to the site.

    Should the Favicon confusion continue, clear the Temporary Internet Files
    again and also clear the History.

    Hope this helps,
    Don

    So far it is only seen as an environmental issue I think.

    E.g. do you have an indexing service running...

    Also, your specific symptom might be avoided to some extent
    by changing your cache-checking option to Every visit...
    (e.g. instead of the default Automatic). However, I tried testing
    the idea that Automatic might be a cause for a number of months
    and never noticed an instance of your problem symptom.
    Normally I always use Every visit...

    Good luck
