I am having the same problem, every time I upload favicon.ico, it simply deletes the icon I had stored in the file, and replaces it with the default icon. This is file directly, not the website; however the website also displays the default icon. I have tried this several times on both the file manager and FTP client.
PS: I did this yesterday and 3 days ago, neither of them worked. They had same results.
This is what it is: http://cluckysalliance.ucoz.com/favicon.ico
and this is what I want it to be: http://cluckysalliance.ucoz.com/scripts/favicon.ico (this is not the actual location of the file, when i save it to the root folder, it replaces it with the default icon, as shown above)
Both the the two files were uploaded as the same file, however the first one reverted back to the default icon, however it does not have the information off to the side of it)

Alright, I opened my site with Internet Explorer instead of Firefox, and it shows the image that I want, however, Firefox still displays the default image. How can I fix this?
