File type icon disappeared?

  1. This is weird. In the last day or so the default icon for .htm files has disappeared. I use FF, so my .htm icon is the FF version.

    There have been no FF updates in the last couple days, and the other FF icons (e.g. hyperlink files) are still normal. But the .htm icon has reverted to the Windows 'unknown file type' icon.

    I opened the Folder Options/File Type settings and the icon still shows up there for the .htm file type settings. I have tried changing it to something else (thinking maybe some minor Windows Update setting blocked FF icons from being used for Windows files...because that totally sounds like something MS would do). But nothing shows up for that file type icon anymore.

    Any one else ever experience this?

    Thanks Archean.

    Will that mean resetting ALL FTA's? That would be horribly irritating. I might just keep things the way they are if that is the case.:(

    Not at all. You can change associations at any given time with program of your choosing at that particular time.
