Internet Explorer - favorites menu

I find with the upgrade from 7068 to 7077, my favorites bar often will have the icons for the different web pages to be an globe symbol for a second before it shows the website logos. Is anyone else having this issue? it is more of a bother than a show stopper, but one i want to go away FAST!

yes exactly, but after probably less than a second, it goes back to normal, i will try to get a print screen of it. it is there long enough to aggravate, but not enough for me to format and do a fresh install to see if it goes away.

What are your internet settings showing? (e.g. Delete browsing history on exit).

I ask this as this will clear all browsing history including icons - Unless the 'Preserve favourites data' on the delete page is checked.

It's worth a try, details in

Internet History

In order to restore the icons (if you need to) you will need to visit every site you have set as a favourite
