I've changed the actual favicon.ico file on a site and no matter what browser I use, I can't get the new file to show.
The old one still shows in every browser
I have an absolute address in the header: <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.example.com/favicon.ico">
this has worked great in the past, but where does it get the "old" favicon from? I've tried clearing the caches on the browsers to no avail and I certainly can't go clearing the caches of everyone else's browsers.
This is kind of a problem because the site has changed owners and the new one does not want to be associated with the old one, this is the last piece.

well, now it works, quitting browsers and relaunching them after moving the favicon seems to have done the trick, but then when I moved the favicon.ico icon BACK to where it was....all the browsers start showing the OLD icon again!
