I made a favicon for my site and it shows up in the url browser but when I bookmark my url to the firefox toolbar the favicon doesnt show up. What am I supposed to do to make it show up there as well?

That's strange. I just tried bookmarking my site which has a favicon as well. It worked. First of all.. try to clear your cache in your browser. Then, I would open up a new tab, enter your site address. Then once it's loaded, right click and save as a bookmark. It should save.

Littleus- was your favicon a JPEG image or a different format?

it should be a bookmark image as well, regardless of the file type.
Maybe something to do with the process you used to bookmark it

its showing on his site - but not in his bookmarks. probably to do with the method he bookmarked it.
