Ever since I put this theme into place, it has bothered me that my icon has disappeared. The icon is that little plate of cookies that shows up in the address bar, or on a tab if you use Firefox. (You really, really should be using Firefox. For your own safety.) Those cookies just make it easier to find my site. They have been around for some time, and I have missed them.
Tonight, I finally had enough. I was making some other edits over at PointySticks and I decided to finally investigate the cause of the missing icon. It turns out that the theme I use for this site had a line of text in the header that told the site to look for the faveicon.ico file somewhere where it does not exist. Removing the rogue line of text made the cookies return.
Some days, it really is the little things that make me so very happy.
