    Hello,
    The favicon appears when I look at my webpage offline, but it doesn't appear when online. I uploaded correctly and the code is correctly placed in the <head></head>. My web host could view it when in Firefox, which is what I use, but it didn't show on my computer. Any advice?

      I changed the favicon.ico to favicon.jpg. It now shows up on the address bar.

        Renaming favicon.ico to favicon.jpg is not a good idea because it's not
        a JPEG file. The original problem, most likely, was the browser cache.
        So I'd clear the browser cache and rename favicon file back to favicon.ico.

        Hope this helps.
