Safari favicon not updating


14-Sep-2017 08:03

I've checked the site on browserstack in case it's my cache, do you think browserstacks could be cached too?(im thinking it will refresh from time to time) The favicon is located in /site, so I'm sure the path is correct, also pointed the file in the header. , My computer was heavily cashed, not even removing the cache or using browserstacks / incognito view will let me see the favicon (all of them were cashed).The actual reason why refresh won't work can be found in this question's solution: stackoverflow.com/questions/8616016/…--- the icon cache is in a sqlite DB file, independent of the browser cache!To refresh your site's favicon you can force browsers to download a new version using the link tag and a querystring on your filename.

Until now, even if you were browsing privately in Safari — which should leave absolutely no traces of your browsing history — Safari kept records of all the favicons from the sites you visited.So i used another pc and it was working fine in all browsers.
