Lots of favicons missing most of the time. 

Examples:

Expected results:

Favicons are always displayed.

amazon.com is broken too. All these sites are common in that they don't specify a favicon and instead rely on the browser trying the root favicon so something it broken with that logic. The network inspector suggests we aren't even attempting to load them.

Oddly if you open them in a background tab the icon loads just fine so something strange is going on with the event handling.
