[X-Newbies] Strange Safari

OK I think I've discovered the fix.

Safari likes to hold on to any icons it has.

I dumped the cache of icons from the Library>Safari folder.
So then it reverted to and stored the regular blue globes.

Just now, I simply went in and then dumped the cache once again and  
voila, the special icons are
showing up when I visit each page.

I guess Safari doesn't like to give up the icons when new ones are  
I cannot find a setting that asks to refresh the page on EACH VISIT  
like other browsers have.
Or am I missing that?
I could care less about seeing favicons but since I design pages,  
they have to show up for me so I at least know they are working for
