    … Sorry, forgot to mention that I'm using KeePass Ver. 2.12

    I've just released a new version of the plugin which should resolve this problem. Thanks for letting me know and sorry it took a while for me to fix - looks like the 3rd party service the plugin relied upon stopped working but the new version is all self-contained so that same problem can't happen again.

    Please try out version 1.5 and let me know if it works for you.

    I'm having the same problem on Windows XP SP3. I'm behind company proxy. The proxy settings are configured in the Internet Explorer settings. No proxy password required.

    To be more precise: I only have the problem with many (more than 50%) of the websites. The favicon for cannot be loaded. With Wireshark I can see that the is successfully downloaded twice! But I get an error saying "Parameter not valid…"

    I've been able to download the codeproject favicon at various times over the past couple of years (it was actually one of my test icons when first developing this plugin). I've just tried again with the newly released version 1.6 and it works fine.

    It's possible that codeproject have changed their site since my tests last year but v1.6 can download more favicons than v1.5 so it has probably fixed whatever problem was preventing this favicon from downloading in February.

    Please let me know how you get on with version 1.6.
