Considering that I don't have icons on my desktop, I have no idea.

But you're not the only one who has asked this question. I just wish I could remember how it is resolved...

1. Right click on any part of your desktop
2. Select "Arrange Icons By"
3. Uncheck "Lock Web Items on Desktop"
4. The icons' captions should now return to their original transparent state.
