Questions concerning search icon.

Post by Butcher_ss » Wed Mar 09, 2011 6:15 pm

I am currently using AB 11.7 B46 SR3. I manually change the web search engine to that of google by entering this:

Code: Select all

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=]
My question is, is it possible to change the icon which appears which is a lens to that of the Google Icon like the newer version does? (version 2010 correctly displays the Google Icon like Firefox). Is this possible or not and is it difficult if possible? Thanks for any help you might provide.

Avant pulls the favicon.ico file (which is used to display the icon you see) the site specifies. if it's not displaying the correct one, it's likely it either doesn't support it (certainly used to support it, but I believe Google have updated it a few times since the 11.7 series), or can't find it.

I wasn't referring to the favicon which appears but instead the icon which appears next to the area where you input the search text.

Newer Builds:

You can change it to Bing or Avant Find for example and the icon changes accordingly.
