Favicons not refreshing in tabs when I change sites

  • For example, when I change from Google Search to the New York Times, I still see the Google icon. In a different tab, when I leave the Paris Review for Barron's, I still see the Paris Review favicon.

    I restarted Opera, then my entire computer. Both seemed to do the trick for a while, but then the problem reappeared.

    I'm running:

    Opera Version: 65.0.3467.42
    macOS Mojave 10.14.5

    Does anybody know how to fix this?

    Same version of Opera, Mojave 10.14.6, no problem here.

  • @xiamenese Thank you, Mark.

    I will chalk this one up to technology gremlins, as the problem went away on its own a day later, despite nothing changing in my environment.

    I kept an eye on it for another day, just in case it reappeared. So far it has not.

  • After I upgraded to Opera 65.0.3467.48, the issue returned.

    I will see if it goes away again after several restarts.

  • The issue remains.

    I have since upgraded my macOS to 10.14.6. I am still running Opera 65.0.3467.62.

    As I type this in one Opera tab, the adjacent one shows the SeekingAlpha favicon appearing for The New York Times.
