Hi Team,Your web server is presently sending "application/octet-stream" for favicon.ico files.
This is a server misconfiguration. (See below.)Please add the following to your /etc/apache/mime.types file in order to provide support for favicons.
image/x-icon ico This will correct the configuration. As an alternative, you could add: AddType image/x-icon .ico to your httpd.conf file.I have tested both of these possibilities on my Redhat Linux 9 Apache/2.0 system, and they corrected the problem.
For tux users, I have added the mime type to my /etc/tux.mime.types and that fixed the problem on my linux box. (Tux on Linux 9 pre-processes files before Apache).

I seem to be having some strange results with favicons.My Opera 7.23 on my Linux system sees the favicon at http://www.xenodochy.org/, but Opera7.50P3 running under W2K does not.
the problem is the changed handling for incorekt mime type sne dby server http://people.opera.com/tim/changelogs/w750p3.html#detail Transfers Modified behavior for unreliable content-types. This should make it less likely that you'll get plaintext garbage when you should download a file - No extension guessing will be done in for "application/octet-stream" and "text/plain" MIME types this is the reason for the favicon problem. a lot of sites (also my.opera.com) are misconficured and send text/plain instead image/x-icon - "Application/octet-stream" is still considered unreliable and using the extension and content for guessing is still performed when the resource is loaded this seems to produce a second (rare) bug. i got now on some sites a donload window with this mime typ and php sites.
