The favicon that I selected does not appear to be working. I tried deleting and recreating the bookmark but I'm still seeing the default orange CUNY logo. Please see the attached screenshot (note the arrow pointing to the image). I'm using Firefox 60.0 (64-bit). The site icon IS working correctly.

Thanks very much!! :)

Ray, would you mind having a look? I'm unsure how favicon support works on Multisite, when there's an actual favico file in the web root.

The favicon is working for me.

Judging from Michael's screenshot, it looks like he bookmarked the link. When this happens, the browser usually caches the favicon. To fix this, the bookmark favicon would need to be refreshed.

This can be done by doing a hard refresh - CTRL+F5. More debug instructions can be found here:

I'm going to close this one as this is a browser-related issue.

Thanks, Ray and Boone. I've tried it on multiple browsers and tried CTRL-F5 but I'm still not seeing the correct favicon. This obviously isn't a huge deal so don't worry about it if it's a huge hassle to investigate further.
