I migrated a website to a new platform and server. However, the old favicon for the old site still remains. In other browsers (Chrome, Firefox), the new favicon shows up just fine, no problems.

I tried:

  1. Clearing website cache
  2. Following instructions found on web to clear Favicon/Touch Icon folder. I could find no such beast in Big Sur.
  3. Pulling up the website in private browser mode.

I think Apple has to be pulling the favicon from the cloud or something. I see no way to change it.

From "Developer" menu, click on "Empty caches."

I'm not sure why clearing caches using the traditional method of clearing caches in Safari preferences did not work.
