    Also you can right slick on it and show info and you can paste any icon you want in there on the top left of the inspector window.

    maybe my english is bit bad , but its NOT about any icon on ur desktop its about the bookmark icon in your dock

    there is no " info" there, just "remove from doc " and "open "

    any more hints pls !

    First off I think you need to ask the question in the proper forum this is the iMac forum this would be more suited to the OS X forum. Also there are tons of apps and information out there you can use to accomplish this. Give www.google.com for a spin it will change your world :)

    That's a lot of work, considering you just drag and drop the URL, or, you know, put it in the favorites bar of your browser.

    You mean drag the small "favicon" to the dock?
    Nope. That doesn't work… you still get the spring-loaded @ icon…
    And I think the OP's question was how to change that icon, not how to get a bookmark onto the dock. ;)

    Drag the address favicon to the desktop rather than the dock.
    Finder > Get Info on the webloc and whatever icon you want to use
    Copy and paste from the icon to the webloc..
    Put webloc with the new icon into a folder in finder then drag the icon to the dock.

    Note you cannot drag the dock spring icon to the desktop just open it in firefox first.

    You could of course save the bookmarks in firefox like most users do.

    Brilliant! Works like a charm, on the icons in the upper left corner, not the one in Preview.

    :D FINALLY! all the internet searches didn't work they were all for changing the icon on the desktop or somewhere else and not the Dock itself. Thanks for this, didn't think about doing it this way. Now I'm really curious as to where that actual spring icon is stored/hidden away.
