Windows 7: Firefox Icon os Generic


13 Sep 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600
 
 
Firefox Icon os Generic

Weird. Just notice that my firefox 3.5.3, the actual icon is generic, not the firefox icon. I had just did a clean install + downloaded a new copy of firefox. Anyone know how to fix this. Thanks or did I miss somewhere that firefox is not compatible to windows 7?

FF is very compatible with Windows 7 ... just change the icon if you dont like the default one... And Welcome to the forums!!

Thanks for the welcoming. I go to the actual folder for firefox and the icon looks generic, i guess i need to re-install firefox. Thanks

Maybe the default program feature in Windows 7 didnt take properly. Check the general tab in options to make sure that FF is set as default browser.

right-click the taskbar icon and goto properties>open file location. Is the file there generic too? is that the FF.exe (executible) or is it another icon file?
