Did you run through the suggestions that Dick Koch gave in his initial mention of TeXShop 3.14? First, select one of the .tex fiels and do a Get Info… on it; then select another app to open .tex documents and choose `Change All' and confirm; finally, go back and choose TeXShop again and `Change All'.

If that doesn't work get Mountain Lion Cache Cleaner at <http://www.northernsoftworks.com/mountainlioncachecleaner.html>, and do a Cache Cleaning with settings Light Cleaning and cleaning all three caches. This will require a re-boot. Then Open TeXShop and create a new .tex document which should have the new icon and all your other .tex documents should have that icon too.

Good Luck,
