Before every URL in Firefox's URL bar is a small icon that represents the site you are at. Is there anyway to set the icon that appears for your site, or are you stuck with what Firefox gives you?

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

This is just basic HTML. You put it between the head-tags, y'know, where the title is..

Yep, I got my cute lil' icon.

<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico"> <link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="favicon.ico">

Are both of these necessary?

I think Shortcut Icon is for after you add the page to your Favorites or when you drag the link to your computer, but that's just a guess. The question is, does it matter? Just one line. ;)

Heh, I suppose not. It's not like I don't have tons of other useless lines of stuff [grin].
