WordPress Dashboard and favicon

When I started to use Firefox 5 and App tabs, I discovered a small annoying thing. The favicon that I use for my blog is not visible when I run the admin side or the dashboard. So when I have that up (I usually do now in an apptab) I would only se the standard white/blank paper. Here is how you fix that by changing your theme:

First go to you theme page.

If there is a function.php file there you can edit it, or if not then you can create it. If you are creating it – make sure you have the start and end php tag (<?PHP and ?>) in there also.

Add the following lines to the file:

You need to edit the location of the icon.

And now the favicon will show up on you admin pages also.
