Hello,

Is there a reason the favicon isnt transperent? Looks horrible.

Actually its transperent in Chrome but not in Androind 4.2.2 in the standard browser. Odd.

My FF favicon on my toolbars bookmark bar has changed to a crummy low-res favicon since I loaded this page (first time on Neowin today from this PC).

Yes this is what i see in Firefox and Chrome it sure looks terrible, i get this on my bookmarks toolbar and it sometimes appears on the tab now too but not always.

 

It only changed in the last 24hrs.

The favicon on the main site seems to be smaller than the one used on the forums currently - I reset the favicons to double check.

What I noticed is it got smaller or got a thicker border around it before it changed to that ugly light blue colour this happened earlier in the week.

I was just about to say I also have the light version on android chrome browser, however it just changed to the normal icon.

Edit

On the front page it looks ugly light blue on android but as soon as I click a thread like this one it changes to the normal one, so maybe it is a front page problem?
