    united.com has injected a new favicon into my bookmarks in
    Firefox 15 - orange square with a blue border and what looks
    like a capital C in blue inside, plus a jet contrail. A little busy
    but at least nicer than that blue globe. Surreptitious test
    marketing for a new logo?

    Why would UA have a "C" in the logo??

    Sounds more like your icon database is corrupt.

    Because they're changing the name back to Continental soon? ;)

    Because the recent business model has been Craptacular?

    I think kwai must be onto something. untitled1.JPG

    But at this magnification, the C looks like a last quarter moon ...

    I'll set 'em up, you knock 'em down. ;) Too easy, but that was certainly fun.

    And I agree that it is almost certainly a corrupt favicon database.

    Yeah, I just couldn't resist.

    Definitely a corrupt favicon database. Occasionally mine in Chrome does odd things. For a few days I had the Houston Chronicle's favicon showing Marriott's site, but then it tends to resolve itself after a new visit to the site with the wrong favicon.

    Further report. I went to united.com, and normally such actions reload an
    icon into the whatever-it-is database, but it didn't work for 2 days; finally
    did, now that I'd gotten used to the one I showed you. Speaking of which,
    has anyone ever seen that favicon? I'm pretty sure it was new to me.

    Nope, never seen it, and I have sifted through a number of people's icon databases over the years. (Job hazard.)

    Next time make sure the 15-pin blue video connector is *firmly* plugged into your computer when viewing web pages through a projector, TV or monitor :)
