The icon image (.ico file) for a particular Safari 5 bookmark, for "accuweather.com", keeps appearing no matter what purging of Safari I try to do.
I've tried everything, repeatedly. "Reset Safari..." command with "Remove all website icons" (and every other option) selected. Restarting the computer. Deleting the bookmark, and then making a new one at the site. Every other website icon was purged long ago.
The accuweather.com bookmark is just a normal bookmark, made manually when I'm at the site (not a scripted bookmarklet).
I have dug through OSX preferences but can't find the place where Safari .ico files are stored -- where is that?
This is a serious issue because a uniquely-numbered .ico file can be used to track site visitors.
No response here a day later... This is with Safari 5 Mac BTW. If anyone can reproduce this problem for accuweather.com or any other site please report this to Apple using the Safari "Report Bugs to Apple" function (in "Safari" menu). I won't be following up on this Superuser question further. Thanks, Jane.
