  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. It is by design that we show a grey box behind certain favicons if they do not meet the contrast ratio required to be fully visible on top of a black background. Currently, we do not plan to release a fix for this problem. Please update this case if you can provide new information for us to consider.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team
