I recently switched over to 2degrees as my ISP. Around the same time icons for many of the websites I regularly visit have started showing a generic earth icon instead of the websites icon. Could this be related to the ISP change or is this a Chrome issue? I've never had this issue as far as I know.

Aren't tab icons only as good as the coder adding link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="http://example.com/favicon.ico

 

In which case, it would have to be blocked locally or struggling to handle them?

Yes, there must a icon declaration. It looks like the image (hard to read, OP please crop and upload to Geekzone instead) shows Browser History, hence my suggestion of clearing cache and visiting the sites again.

In the first post is the mediafire link where you can zoom the image but I will try to upload a zoomed copy. When you right click the back button in Chrome it shows the history for that tab. In this case it is all mediafire showing a generic earth icon instead of the medifire logo. I already tried clearing the cache both in Chrome and CCleaner but I don't usually clear my history...

So I've tried signing out from my Google account, deleting and rebuilding the favicon files in the Chrome AppData folder and even reinstalling Chrome but I'm still stuck with these missing favicons. Anyone have an idea?

The same earth icon as mine? Just one website? The earth icons have infested my bookmarks with links that I haven't even opened. 😕

The only tab doing it is for a local html file. Pretty sure it's only been doing it since a recent Chrome update. All other tabs and bookmarks are currently fine.

Try a different browser and see what happens. I'd recommend giving Opera a go.

This is weird. The same sites in Chrome with the missing favicons also won't load in MS Edge...

Or Firefox for Windows. I love FF as it is customisable to my tastes and needs and it is just as fast these days as the others. I write my own css code for it plus use Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx

Is anyone using Google's DNS servers on their router? There are even missing favicons in Firefox so it's the only thing I can think of.
