    Maybe a small thing, but the Wilders icons on my location bar, tabs, and bookmarks are now blue in Vista but haven't changed in XP. In both systems I added 107.170.53.243 wilderssecurity.com and 107.170.53.243 xxx.wilderssecurity.com to my hosts file. Anyone know if there's way to get the new icons in XP? Thanks. :)

    Are you talking about the favicon? See these:

    New xF: [​IMG] Old vB: [​IMG] and Pixel: [​IMG]

    If you are seeing the vB logo, then that is stuck in cache in your browser. Since it is not served from here at all anymore, a total cache wipe and restart should pick up the new image.

    If Pixel ever gets stuck in your browser, it's likely that you were online when a maintenance job ran and that basic text page, saying we're down and "go grab a cup of coffee...", was up for a few minutes. That image marks that page.

    Appreciate it. It turned out to be Favicon Picker in Firefox. I had to reset the icon then it displayed the new one. Love the new look btw. :)
