Remove the current favicon image saved as favicon.ico in the root directory of your theme:
To create/find the favicon, you should open www.favicon.cc website or any other online tool for generating favicons. Click, for example, Latest Images button, choose the image for your favicon, open it and save:
Upload the new favicon.ico file into your Media library instead of the old one and save all necessary changes:
Refresh the page and you will see the new favicon in the address bar of the browser.
If no changes show up after refreshing the page, then you have to clear the recent history in your browser.
