Dont think the Favicon button can be changed. I suggested to admin that the "like" button be enlarged and improved but the answer was a negative. This is something that the control is with VS forum owners not the tech/mods/admins of the forum.
According to the Invision Community guides (the guides for this forum software), changing the favicon should be simple. The forum already has its own logo, so perhaps the favicon can be changed too. For example, a favicon like this
could be used instead of the default
(these are .gifs as the forum won't allow me to add .ico files)
Changing the logo, favicon and sharer image
Themes in the IPS Community Suite offer an easy way to change three of the key images used by the software. They are:
Logo - The logo image shown at the top of every page of your community
Favicon - The small icon shown in the user's browser tab, and next to bookmarks in their browser
Sharer image - The image Facebook pulls from your community when a user shares a link from your site. Often you'll use a larger version of your logo.
To change these items, edit the relevant theme by navigating to Customization -> Themes in the AdminCP, and clicking the edit icon next to the theme:
On the Logos tab, you'll see three upload fields where you can drag'n'drop your images. Click Save to apply them.
Note: The favicon needs to be a .ico icon file, not a standard image. It should also be small for best results, and is normally shown by browsers at 16 pixels by 16 pixels. Consider using a third-party tool such as this favicon editor to help.
Yesterday, I was stuck in an airport killing time on SF whilst waiting for the flying bus. As usual, the "free" WIFI was playing up and I noticed the SF favicon had changed to something red with a black squiggle.
That's when I posted.
But it didn't end there, it changed again to a green WIFI symbol, at that point I realised that the browser was displaying/saving the favicon of the provider (rather than the SF one), and it eventually returned to the V shape.
But when I switched browser, this is what I found saved in Chrome
