OK, I'll have a look at that setting.
short_icon_urls is at it's default (so it's on!)

I see.

Is this maby related to using c-icap via ICAP?

I'm installing from source:

contains a lot of icons, which are fairly old (2011!)

root_at_proxy-cvk-1:/var/www/squid/icons/silk# ls -ltr |grep arr
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 372 Apr 5 2011 arrow_up.png

The sources contain the icons:

root_at_proxy-cvk-1:/usr/src# ls -ltr ./squid-
-rwxr-xr-x 1 94 94 372 Oct 12 04:06 ./squid-

Where would the icons usually go to?
