A few minutes before I see the maintenance page in MSE ("We are currently offline for maintenance"), when seeing the page in Firefox, the favicon is missing, whereas the favicon was displayed in Chrome.

Google Chrome Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Mozilla Firefox Version 66.0.3 (64-bit)

Mozilla Firefox

  • How does time enter the picture ("A few minutes before")? What role does time play? Can you elaborate? Commented Apr 19, 2023 at 7:53

It seems the bug had been fixed sometime before.

Now, the MSE offline page has the favicon in the Firefox browser.

Browser version: Mozilla Firefox 112.0 (64-bit)

    Might have been Firefox issue, fixed in some update. Commented Apr 18, 2023 at 7:59
  • @ShadowTheGPTWizard I hope No. The same issue exists for browsers.stackoverflow.design page. It has the favicon in Chrome but not in Firefox. Or in a other way, Chrome set default favicon (The globe) if there is no custom favicon, but Firefox doesn't handle it.
