I like it better than nothing, but it is a little small red helmet. I would prefer just the Arrowhead Chiefs logo, but that would probably be too small. However, I'm happy with the Favicon!

Not true. I have clearance for this information, Mr. seclark. My new badge even gives me access to ChiefsPlanet Hanger 18 where we reverse engineer Mr. kcnut's posts.

You might have to restart Firefox to get it to show up. I've noticed that the latest version of FF gets them mixed up a lot too.

Do you have to enable it somehow? Or maybe my work blocks certain Favicon's?

I know ESPN and KCChiefs.com have them in my links list and on my explorer bar when I go there but the Chiefsplanet does not show up????

It takes a while for browsers to figure out that there's one there for sites you've been to before. I'm not sure why.

Anyway, the helmet's not great, but I haven't found anything better that looks good at 16x16. So it'll have to do for now. :)

7 links? You can rename the bookmarks toolbar to something shorter, I have must of my shit abbreviated...but I have several of the same icons just with different extensions so that add on would be confusing to me...

I could never figure out a way to shorten them, I went 'round and 'round trying to do it. The link name appears when you mouse over them.

Edit: Damn, I just noticed you can edit the titles by right click>properties. :banghead:

If you put the ticker at the bottom of the page it doesn't shortchange you on screen space, it just goes into the space at the bottom of the window that is always there anyway.

I won't be satisfied until my entire browser is bookmarks and toolbars and nothing else! No site window!

There's a bunch of status bar stuff that you can't see on mine because I have that clean up the status bar extension so I can hide most of that stuff, it'd be halfway across the screen without it.
