In 2004 this question came up and was answered by  DavidBirch2dotCom  by referencing Favicon.ico
There are some sites that I can extract the Icon from a webpage using favicon.ico

However there are  sites when I use favicon.ico it gives me an error that the file is not available.

Yet the icon shows up  in the tab of the web page.
I have copied webpages but the icon does not show up.
Is there a way to click/extract and save the icon that does appear?
