Matomo favicon replaces website favicon

How can I stop Matomo favicon replacing the website favicon. It looks like the website favicon functions well as long as I don’t log into Matomo analytics. But when I open Matomo analytics, the website favicon is replaced by Matomo favicon.
I have Matomo installed on-premises on cPanel server and the Matomo folder is installer on the same level as my website.
The website in built with the Rapid Weaver program.
To espress the problem more precise I add this:

  • The correct website favicon stays on the Address Bar.
  • But it is replaced by the Matomo favicon on the browser’s tab.
  • Is this behavior the same on all browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Edge, mobile browsers)?
  • In the website, do you use this kind of HTML tag?
<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/images/favicon.ico">
  • Can you analyze the web traffic (F12 on your browser) and check the wrong favicon call?

This is strange. After struggling with this problem I went to Matomo General Settings / Branding settings and uploaded there our logo and favicon. Soon after that the problem disappeared!

In the website, we use this kind of HTML tag:

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="" sizes="32x32" />
