Question: Force refresh of favorite icons in Safari

Hi everyone,

It's my fourth day on a problem that is driving me up the wall :/ I have created a new favicons set using https://realfavicongenerator.net/ and uploaded them to my website, adding the appropriate lines in index.html to reference them. It has been a while browsing my website in iOS Safari without any favicons installed, and I just cannot get the bookmarks and favorites icons to refresh. The coloured letter placeholder icon continues to show when I try to add bookmark or favorite. Absolutely no problems with adding to home screen - it's just the favorites and bookmarks which don't refresh. If anyone has gone through this already, and solved it, I would really appreciate some help!

Thanks a lot!
