Favicon is no showing in IE on my Angular application hosted on IIS

I have a problem with my favicon not showing in Internet Explorer on my website. It's an Angular 7 application hosted on IIS. I have a dev site and a stage site and the favicon shows up fine at the dev site but not stage site.

Things I have tried/taking consideration of:

  • Change the favicon to .png instead of .ico
  • Add a link to the favicon between Head tags(not necessary in Angular)
  • Favicon is included in assets in angular.json
  • Same webconfig files for both sites
  • Same code for both sites
  • Clear IE cache
  • I can access the icon at /favicon.ico

What bothers me is that it works on the dev site which makes me believe it's something on the IIS. Anyone have some suggestion? Thanks
