    Halfway through browsing, Safari suddenly erased all the "Favicons" (the ones that replace the blue blobs in the address bar, history & bookmark screens/menus) and refuses to refresh them or get new ones from websites I visit. This includes places like MR and BBC/BBC News.

    I know these sites have favicons because they load fine in FireFox.



    Also, I installed the new DivX plugin recently (from Stage6.divx.com) and now whenever I load something that requires the DivX plugin, Safari suddenly quits. How can I remove the DivX plugin from my system?

    Sorry no idea about the favicons. But as far as the plugin go into user/library/internet plugins and delete the plugin from that folder for just the internet part.

    As far as removing the whole dvx though, i'd do a search for it and see where else it was installed. (perhaps library/quicktime or it's own folder)

    Thanks for the reply.

    I assume there's a folder for the favicons - do you reckon trashing this would help that problem?

    Trash the Icons folder from (your home directory)/Library/Safari/.

    Take a look into (your home directory)/Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    and /Library/Internet-Plug-Ins. It should be in one of these folders.

    Thanks for the replies - trashing the Icons folder solved that problem

    Haven't yet got round to removing the DivX stuff yet - will do that later.


    While I've got this thread open, one other thing I've found is that Safari will often beachball for 10 - 20 seconds when I quit it (with any number of tabs open - even with just 1). I am running my G4 PB (1.5GHz) in "Reduced Power" mode because it's been quite warm here and I'm trying to keep the temp of my room down, but surely it shouldn't take that long for Safari to quit - all other apps quit more or less instantly.
