Description Frank Wang 2006-08-04 09:28:42 UTC
Description of problem:
If a website changes its favicon.ico, Konqueor persistently displaying the 
previous one even after restart. Clear cache in settings won't help either.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdebase-3.5.3-0.2.fc4 kdebase-3.5.3-0.4.fc5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a favicon enabled site
  1) cp /path/to/an/icon /var/www/html/favicon.ico
  2) vi /var/www/html/index.html

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<title>Test favicon</title>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="application/xhtml+xml; 
charset=utf-8" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<p>Test favicon</p>

  3) service httpd start

2. Browse the page using Konqueror, the icon should be displayed in address 
bar as expected.
3. Change the favicon file and browse again 
  1) cp /path/to/another/icon /var/www/html/favicon.ico
  2) Restart Konqueror and browse the same page again.
Actual results:
The icon displayed is still the previous one.

Expected results:
The icon displayed should be the updated one.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
