    I know the article you are talking about. I read it as well. I notice that the article was from around 2008 and thought the system might have been changed. Didn't know the update would delete a image file inside the core service folder. Still don't know if it affects everybody. It's pretty strange.

    BTW, good sleuthing. One thing that should be done to ensure no hiccups. Run this Terminal command to correct the permissions on the png file (usually inherits your permissions when you drag something into those places)—assumes that you're booted into 10.7.4:

     

    sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources/url.png

    From an earlier OS version installer. Either SL or Lion pre-10.7.4. Use Pacifist to extract the Dock.app; then, copy it from its Resources folder.

    Solved the same issue here on both my Mac Pro 2006 1,1 and my Macbook Pro!!!

     

    Many thanks this worked like a charm.  My workaround is no longer needed lol.  I had made a links folder on my hard drive and recreated the links in that folder and put the folder on the dock so I could actually see icons, but glad the springy thing is back! 

     

    My transition from Snow Lepord to 10.7.4 was a bit rocky to to say the least as I had the issue on my tower of the computer stalling at the grey apple screen till I found the suggestion to do a Comand+R at start up and run disc utility to both repair permissions and repair the hard drive which ever one of those actually fixed it I don't know but it all works now and all systems go this Mac is a happy mac once again!

     

     

    I will add though it is very odd for an OS update to just randomly delete a commonly used icon and no one on the development team caught this before it was released.

    Baltwo, your last recommendation made me look at the combo 10.7.4 installer with Pacifist and indeed the Dock.app in the installer does not have url.png included thus causing the problem with weblocs on the dock not having the @-on-a-spring icon.  I've updated my bugreport to Apple to include that information.

     

    You know what is so interesting,  my 10.7.4 Combo does not have that url.png either, yet it still works just fine.

     

    Both what is existing on the right side of the dock and any new address I drag down there as a test.

     

    I wonder how to explain that in light of all this????  has it been moved to some other folder perhaps?

    Therein lies the mystery.

    I downloaded Lion OSX 10.4 from the MAS and it doesn't have it either. I copied the image from my cloned backup 10.3 to make it work. (Always save your backup till everything works!!!)
