Subject [jira] [Commented] (GEODE-1202) Website: fix favicon
Date Fri, 08 Apr 2016 23:17:25 GMT


Dave Barnes commented on GEODE-1202:

[~nlamba] Please comment on these behaviors I've observed in Chrome and Firefox:

1. The Geode favicon does appear on the tab.
2. When I bookmark the page, the favicon appears on my bookmark list next to the website name.
3. The favicon does not appear at the leftmost edge of the address field.

Item 3 didn't match my expectations, but it turns out my expectations were wrong. Newer browsers
have repurposed that position to reflect the nature of the browser's connection to the site,
e.g. https vs. conventional http (see
This is true for both Chrome and Firefox. 

Likely conclusion: Not a bug - favicon appears where it should. Expectation was outdated,
based on older browser behaviors.
NB: Safari's conventions are different, it doesn't seem to display favicons for any site in
the situations I investigated.

but doesn't show anything now. You may want to use Geode icon - attached.
