An odd and confusing presentation of an "outside" link in a post:

Any way of fixing that?

    This continues:

    Is there any chance this is a "browser" (Firefox) or "local to me" issue, or is it more widespread?

    Happens to me once in a while, too. I'm using Firefox, BTW.

    If you pull up the HTML source of that webpage, you should find the text "favicon" as part of a URL pointing to a file which represents a small red Q icon. When you get the "site favicon" text displayed instead of the Q icon, the icon is either not loaded, the URL not coded correctly or some other HTML problem … I'm guessing here.
    Someone who really "speaks" HTML should be able to explain it better. And he/she should be able to fix it so that the icon appears or not. If it can't appear, there should be a blank instead of the narrow column with "site favicon" text overlapping other text on the webpage.
