I have had the same problem.

You need to place all the meta, title, (link, script) tags inside the head, verify if this is done in the 'overall_header' template. Some browsers work properly with them in the body but not all of them.

Hello,

How have you tried to add the favicon? You should be adding it in ACP (Admin panel)-->General-->Configuration , where you see favicon, paste the link in.

Your link is already inserted but in the wrong place. (check with IE, for this browser will show your favicon)

As far as I can see from the html you placed your whole head inside the body, so you need to make some updates to the 'overall_header' template. Here you should find nearly on top of the body a bunch of meta, title, script and link tags. These tags should be inside the head instead of inside the body.




Made this post during your edit, I will let it stand if someone else could need the extra info. Wink
