    Favicon only showing up properly in IE

    I've added a fav icon to my website but when it shows in both firefox and chrome the quality is messed up:




    However it is showing fine in IE :




    I'm really confused why this is happening and can't think of how to fix it.

    Give us a link to your favicon so we can see it.

    Is it saved as an .ico file?
    Is it 16 X 16 pixels in size?

    When I made the image it was saved as a png in 16x16, however the website I used to make the .ico file made it 32x32 which I haven't realised since you mentioned to check. I managed to find a website that lets you choose what size to make your .ico file and its now working with a 16x16

    Put it in the folder with your homepage, name it "favicon.ico" and it should automatically work. I visited your site, and none of the following brought up any results:
    Code:
    deewon.com/favicon.ico
             */favicon.png
             */favicon.jpg
    In case you are using a head code (which you aren't currently), make sure that it it applied to every page.
