I've experienced the same issue. Apparently, Inoreader has started to replace the generic favicons of feeds which don't provide any with custom ones for each of those sites based on the first letter of the URL (which is fine). Unfortunately, some feeds which used to have correct, custom favicons now appear with colored letters (e.g. the Recode feed).

Actually yes. We completely changed the feed icons back-end. 

We'll check the exampled feeds and get back to you. 

Feel free to report any other feeds if you notice some differences.

Thank you for the quick response, wesson! I'll let you know if I notice any other feeds with wrong favicons.

Favicons for both feeds has been re-cached but since its an automated process, the visual change might might take some time (not more than a week).

It's not really important, but if you want more feeds where the favicons weren't picked correctly, here are a few: 

Feed: https://bookshop.europa.eu/en/bundles/feeds/5giep2IxSeYAAAEu.lwD0UdL/maps.rss
Feed: https://bookshop.europa.eu/en/bundles/feeds/cWuep2Ixvv8AAAEuyyUD0Ufc/posters.rss

Most if not all bandcamp feeds have the wrong icon, the two above are just examples.

The proper favicon (if it's not in the regular www.example.com/favicon.ico) can usually be found in the source code of the pages the RSS feed items point to, like this on the Cloudflare blog: 

 <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/assets/images/favicon.ico?v=8fa90f09c9">

Or on Bandcamp: 

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a1947737327_3.jpg">

Thanks!

Actually there are many more of them and i really hope we don't have to submit all the feeds address to get the change.

For example all the NASA's feeds looks to have a wrong favicon.

Anyway, it's not really important, they are just small icons after all, but it would be nice if this whole process could rolled back to the previous behaviour.
