SLU's favicon.ico?

So, I hit SLU via my phone from various wifi hotspots... With their usual proxy page hijacking etc.

Afterwards, the icon for sluniverse.com on my Android portal/homepage shows up as a Starbucks or Panera logo.

Everything else seems to revert just fine, so I'm wondering, is there something different about SLU's favicon.ico (or equivalent) icon data?

Does anyone else see this kind of thing happening?

This is SLU's favicon:

It's just a standard one, nothing unusual.

Might it be the actual image format or sizes involved? AIUI, a favicon now can be various sizes and image formats. On iOS, f’rex, quite large icons are presented for the favorites and frequently visited sites - but not all sites supply whatever image format and/or sizes it likes; almost all do, but not Equestria Daily, nor Cineworld. SLU is fine, with its panchromatic tripartite halo. ^_^

I just tried adding SLU to my android home screen via chrome. It shows as a purple square with a white S in it. I don't know why that would be but SLU is useless in chrome anyway. If I have to look at SLU on android I'll use tapatalk.

Wouldn't say it's 'useless in chrome' ... I do have some strangely small font size issues occasionally, but nothing insurmountable. Tried using tapatalk and didn't stick with it long enough to get comfortable. :}

This also happened to me, using Chrome in Android on an old Kyocera Hydro Vibe.

I haven't been to Starbucks for a while but it's still their icon from their logon page.

I much prefer Chrome to Tapatalk and tiny font doesn't bother me.
