    I see the little icons in the tabs for both of those browsers on Win10. Is that the location you mean, or are you referring to another spot?

    Sometimes the full assets for the site don't load. Plus, we had a little site burp recently, so it's possible you have old data on your browsers. Please clear your cache and cookies, close your browser and reboot your machine, to see if that remedies the problem for you.

    Thanks for your help troubleshooting.

    I cleared absolutely everything from both Firefox and Chrome before submitting to the help desk. I include here a screenshot of the ghosted icons.

    I could explore this further, and I will when I get time and if it doesn't clear, but it's possible that you should clear your cache and stuff to see if you aren't running on stored data. Again, I haven't checked it out, but these are, apparently, from the "fondkons" font which doesn't seem to be loading... or something.

    Just tested it in Microsoft Edge (gad). The itty bits are completely missing there, and don't even show placeholders. Happening on three separate machines. I did just install Office 2016 on each machine, but as enjoyable as casting Microsoft as an all-purpose culprit is, I really don't think they're the problem here.

    I'll look more closely later, if I get time

    Well, I fixed it selfishly by downloading fondkons.ttf from y'all and installing it into Windows. Just temporary, until whatever.

    Happy weekend, tech team!
