Windows 7: Incorrect icon for file association

Incorrect icon for file association

I have .htm and .html files set to open with Firefox, and they do. However, the icon is IE. I've already tried the Icon Cache Rebuild but it didn't work. So how do I make the icon show Firefox instead of IE?

And just to be clear, I reiterate: This is not an issue of the wrong program opening; it is an issue with the incorrect icon being displayed.

Hello cbiweb,

As a test, use "Open with" to set .htm and .html files to always open with IE, then set them to always open with Firefox to see if that may toggle it to use the correct icon again.

Open With - Change Default Program

If not, then you might see if reinstalling Firefox will be able to correct the icon.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

change association icon?
How do I change the icon for an association? I have .txt opening in notepad, but I'd like to change the icon only when viewed in explorer, not change the fact that it opens in notepad.
