Losing icons in Favourites

By Cemetery Mike ·
After importing/saving certain favourites, I am losing the custom icons that normally accompany a great majority of the sites bookmarked. This occurs after a few days, when these icons are then replaced by the generic IE icon, and the custom version is no where to be found. Why is this happening? Thanks everyone in advance for your help.

When you clear your Internet Explorer temporary files, or cache, you clear out the files with the icon for the web site.
Temporary Internet files also expire after a set period of time.

I noticed that Mozilla fixed this in the latest release of Firefox and does not remove or expire the icon images.

1 option is to move the icon files to a different folder and point each favorite with an icon to use the new folder.
Just right click on the shortcut and choose properties and click on change icon.
