OK - Am I losing my mind, or has there been some cute glitch in my browser? I use Firefox's "toolbar" feature for my personal bookmarks. Of course babble is right up there in the centre, between my online banking site and the Job Bank site.

Imagine my surprise when I open my broswer to find the icon representing babble is the round stylized dot that is the CBC logo?

Not that I mind, terribly, but... WTF??

steffie - I have babble up there in my Firefox toolbar too, but it doesn't have any logo. Come to think of it, it would be nice to have a babble logo.

Agreed. I'd like to see a babble icon on my toolbar!

My home page is CBC, and I thought that might be the culprit, so I tried switching homepages to another site with an icon, but it stayed the same. Even after closing and re-opening the browser. Maybe I have to do a full restart for it to apply.

Did a full restart with another home page. Still, babble is looking at me with the CBC "eye".


Weird.

Babble on my firefox quicklink bar got a LiveJournal logo. I don't know how I did it or how to change it, either. I just considered it one of those quirky things until I saw this thread. Maybe babble's a logo thief! XD

Maybe it's all part of the great babble-Liberal-audra-Reality Bites conspiracy.

I think you're on to something, Scott. Babblers can be inked to both CBC and LJ. Perhaps it's some kind of clever ... oh hell, I dunno.

For the site admins, there is a site for creating favicon files from existing images ... here are examples of some bitmaps that can be produced with some of the standard rabble/babble logos.



To create these favicon files, and for instructions on how to use them on a web site, go here

here is a rabble favicon I just made (using the link above):

and here is a babble one:

You have to use a simple graphic that will mean something at 16x16 pixels.
