I like to use the Favorites bar in IE8 and IE9 for frequently accessed web sites, such as iGoogle, Google Mail, Google Reader, and (of course) Ask Metafilter. I like the favicons that appear there, but, for some reason, the Gmail favicon always appears as the generic, IE website icon. See image link here.
I've tried everything I can think of to make it look "nice" like the others, but it always looks like this, even on other computers with the Favorites linked through Xmarks. Why is this and can anyone offer a solution? Thanks!

rolled out some major redesigns recently. In fact they look quite similar to me; a bunch of random floating lists and boxes, with a dark bar at the top. What's the philosophy beside the aesthetic choices? I realize that there are technical improvements going on behind the scenes and that taste is subjective. Still, there must be some reason Google and Facebook would make major cosmetic changes. Hey designers, what's the logic?

How can I make sure Mailto links in Chrome (for Mac) open in Gmail and not my default mail client (Mail)? I've seen the official 'Send from Gmail' extension in the Chrome Webstore, but surely Chrome should support Gmail natively without the need for an extension?

Gmail filter. When I use the Y shortcut to archive a message I have scrolled down to read, Gmail has started opening the next message similarly scrolled down. This means I have to scroll back up to see the beginning of the message.
Please hope me.
Occurs in FF4.01 and IE8. Happens for both my personal and work Gmail.

After three great years my Google Calendar has simply stopped sending me email notifications. I have tried the help page here
and many unhelpful forum posts here
. This seems to be a prevalent problem. I wish I could switch to something else but Gmail is what I use heart and soul for work. Any others solved this problem? I am all ears. Thanks for your time.

Is there any way to forward a bunch of emails in just one email in Gmail? I have to forward about 20 emails to a fact-checker and would rather send it as one file, rather than 20.

How does the SMS feature in Gmail work? I know there's some kind of base of phone numbers used for it, but I assume those numbers send out thousands of texts per day; how does a reply end up at my account, instead of someone else's? If someone replies to one of my SMS messages sent from Gmail in a month, will the reply still be connected to me?

Gmail question: Is there a way to set up a script to auto-respond to an email with included attachments? I asked a guy if I could send him my resumé and cover letter so he can circulate to relevant people at a staff meeting tomorrow, but he hasn't responded and I cannot be sure I will be awake to get his response before the meeting. It seems that it would be a faux pas to send them blindly after asking for his go-ahead. If this is possible, is there a way to do it only if a specific person emails you, or will it have to be an automatic response to anyone who emails me during this period?

Google seems to have changed their 'reply to all' feature recently for lists with a 'reply-to' email address specified. Now when you click 'reply all' it sends an email to the person who sent the mail as well as to the list.
I'm on a list where like 90% of the people use gmail and it's causing a problem, because some people habitually click 'reply-all' and some people usually click just 'reply'. What happens is, I'll click 'reply all' to an email, and some other person will click only 'reply' to mine and the reply will go back to me personally, instead of the list.
Is there a way to revert this behavior?

Multiple domains- I know how to forward them.
I could start a Google account for each.
But I'd really like to get the email to forward instead? I want it to be that you send an email to (anything) email@example.com and it ends up going to my main domain/email account.

How do I get strangers off my Google chat panel? It seems that everybody I've ever emailed with a gmail address is there. I do not necessarily have ongoing business with them. I don't want to know when they're online, nor do I want them to know when I'm online. I know I can change my status, but that's not what I'm looking for. Help.
