favicon is implemented as a favicon.ico in the root of the webserver. This is one of the 2 possible methodes and favored for new browsers. However depending on the browser there is a desired format that should be available in the file. The current favicon.ico only contains a 16x16 256 color bitmap that only is used in the top bar of mainstream browsers on desktop devices. On mobile devices or when using the google chrome app feature other sizes are needed. For google chrome app feature a 64x64 sized bitmap is needed. For use as a tile on a Apple device a 144x144 size bitmap is needed. Please update the favicon.ico file with a correct one or make <link rel="icon" lines in the header of the pages of the user interface. I know this issue is rejected before with an incorrect reason, the person who rejected it obviously never opens the user interface in anything else the a regular browser window, and not opening it as a google chrome app or as a live tile on a mobile device.
