My favicon is working on IE and Chrome, but it only shows for a split second on Firefox before being replace by wordpress.org. I checked my theme_options and it’s correctly on there. I added the path on the header.php file. Since it does flash on, I’m wondering what’s causing the theme to revert my favicon back to the wordpress.org icon?

Favicons are really heavily cached, especially in Firefox. Try to clean your browser cache

I tried that and even tried it on a new computer. The same thing still happens. My favicon seems like it’s about to work and then the wordpress.org icon takes over again.

Open your website and view the source code… Make sure that there is only ONE favicon tag at your head tag… It is possible when there are two favicon definition in your head section…

Yes, I’ve checked the favicon tag on my header and made sure there’s only one pointing to the right location. It works just fine on other browsers, even IE, just not Firefox. I wonder what’s kicking in on Firefox to replace it after it initially loads.

I checked through them and those extra favicon references are commented out by wordpress. Now my challenge is figuring out how to correct wp_head since there’s a reference to a stylesheet that doesn’t exist:

link href=”http://www.archershomes.com/wordpress/wp-content/themes/openhouse_idx/styles/default.css” rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css”

I’m guess that’s probably what’s causing the browser to go back to the original wordpress icon.
