i surely though i had read previous on here about this but i have been searching for hour....
after Firefox install, right click on icon on desktop, or in start menu, and choose 'add to QL'...then icon on the QL bar looks like a damaged page file. this happens with ff a lot. a few months ago i had this problem every time i loaded it on customers machines, and then it seemed to disappear.
at the time, wherever i found the info, had said to do some elaborate .dll replacement or something about a command for the icon being wrong so it involved tracing down a file in the app data or program data folder and copying over a file. while the explanation was long and technologically beautiful, it didnt work for me. i of course tried updating to latest ff, tried uninstalling and reinstalling, tried it on x86 and x64....same issue (and for the unaware, ff uses same .exe installer x86/x64 anyway...)
so now the problem is back. last few days. with an installer file i use often that i have NOT had issue with for months. and i tried with newer .exe anyway and still same. im on a Win7 x64 system but i am pretty sure it is an issue that effects any (save for 8 which i could care less about)
any wisdom to impart? also, when you click on this damaged icon, firefox works. and while it open on any page, the icon is correct and all other behavior is typical.
and yes i have all the sys updates and .net updates and windows sec patches available, etc
