Steps
1) Visit http://www.twitter.com in Metro mode
2) Swipe from the bottom, select  the pin icon and then select pin to start
3) Visit the desktop and swipe until you see the Twitter tile. (The default Nightly favicon is used even though twitter has a favicon)


Expected: The icon on the start page should be the websites favicon.

Actual: The default Nightly favicon is used.



If Internet Explorer is set as the default browser, it uses the websites favicon as the tile icon, it only defaults to the Internet Explorer icon when another browser is set as the default.
