My external Links - pulls in their icons

Turn it off - on? Overlaps my text.

In FF 3 I see little icons representing the external sites, next my links to them. I don't see this in IE 7.

Is this FF 3 default behavior, or maybe its because of an extension that I have installed, or a preference option I have turned on.

Even if one of above is true - can I as a web master, turn off this behavior of "pulling in of icons" so that browsers don't show them - regardless of how the user had the browser configured?

I ask because - one of the icons overflows onto my text. Who has to plan for this - me or them? Are these icons of uniform, standard width? Does FF automatically force over my text to allow for them - but why on one it doesn't work? I know my code is not professional - I am a beginner. I would like to understand 'what' is going on, so I can determine my options.

Surprised here in web land.

thankx dp

It sounds like you are referring to the favicon.ico if this is in the history, address bar, favorites, etc

Do you mean an icon next to links within the page's content, in which case, it's likely to be an extension modifying the pages you see. I would first take a look within the add-ons menu (Tools >> Add-ons) and see if there were any obvious culprits ;)

one of the icons overflows onto my text. Who has to plan for this - me or them?

If you have an add-on that is causing pages to view badly, it's highly likely that very few people are using the same thing - the add-on developer should fix it, not you.
