Favicons not displaying for my website visitors

I have placed the following code inside my HEAD tags:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" > <link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="/animated_favicon1.gif">

However, though the favicons show up just fine in IE 11, Firefox 50.1 does not display it. How do I fix this? I tried placing the code within the HEAD tags as well as between the HEAD and BODY tags. Instead, I get the same absolutely boring generic favicon at ever site, an "i" within a circle. :-(

TIA. Harry

Note that Firefox only shows the favicon on the Tab bar and no longer at the left end of the location/address bar. The 'i' icon you see on the location bar is the Control Center 'i' button that has replaced the globe/padlock that was previously showing.

Can you post a link to a publicly accessible page (i.e. no authentication or signing on required)?
