    So in Snow Leopard, I changed out the .icns file within Preview's resources folder, but instead of changing it to that icon in the app, it turned the icon into the generic app icon. Any idea how to fix this?

    Here's your basic troubleshooting: check to make sure you named the file exactly the same (preview.icns), including capitalization, and that it's in the Resources folder, then also check the permissions on the new .icns file. The owner should be system, group should be wheel, and permissions should be 755 (owner can read/write, everyone else read only).

    Thanks my Firefly-loving friend. It turned out to be the case-sensitive issue after all.
