Red or orange favicon looks broken

When accessing a website with a red or orange favicon, the favicon looks broken. But for favicons other than both colors it is normal. How to fix this? The browsers I use are Chrome and Edge. But in Firefox it's normal.

Do you have a few websites we can check out with red or orange favicons? That'd let us see if the broken icon is inherent to all Chrome and Edge browsers, or just yours.

Wow, it's happen to me too...
I know it's a minor bug and my not be related to Zorin OS it self or just the chrome based app bug, but any body can help?

Here's a site with a reddish-orangish favicon... looks fine on SRWare Iron (which is Chrome Version 109.0.5550.0 (Official Build) custom (64-bit), just with all the Google corporate spyware stripped out).

Let us know how it looks on your browser.

I never noticed this before...

This is what I see on a form of degoogled Chrome 110.0.5481.100 :

Huh, it has the little orange-red and white alien-looking thing on my browser. The same as is in the picture in my post above.

Yes, you can see the Snu (Alien lookin thing)as well, let me expand the image:

I think you guys miss understood here, the problem is only appear on "favicon" in the tab section on chrome based browser
take a look my screenshot below

favicon from left to right,
chrome look had some little white dot/pixel there
youtube also had some little white dot/pixel alonge the edge of icon
and Reddit favicon even worse
and some time white dot/pixel covering a half of favicon.

Hmmm... what's your color depth?
xwininfo -root | grep Depth
Should be 24. Adding 8 for transparency & opacity gets you to 32-bit color depth.

xwininfo -root | grep Depth
Depth: 24

Zorin menu > Settings > Color... do you have color correction turned on and the proper color profile applied?

I never edit certain color setting, I believe it come by default

In color setting, I can't add new color profile or view details, the only one action that I've able to got is just to remove the current profile. It's normal?

They look like crayon scribblings... Mine do not look like that.

Can you please also post the output of

sudo lshw -C video

If you've got a RedmiBook 15, yes.

Is there any way to adjust saturation and contrast on your screen, or just brightness?

Nope, I can't adjust anything related to contrast or saturation. No action button or right click available on color profile setting.
But as long I remember, for the first time I install Zorin, I was able to add several color profile to external monitor (in my office), but since I don't used it anymore, so I've remove it a couple month ago, and prefer to default setting as shown in the previous screenshot above.

Try disabling that color profile, then reboot and see if you still get the color corruption. If there's no change, re-enable the color profile. If it solves the problem, leave color correction off for the screen.


I cannot disabling that default color profile, the only way is to remove. So I did remove it, then reboot.
see, there is no color profile applied now.

Confirm the pixel/dot is seem to gone now

but the huge side effect is now my monitor screen seems to have less contrast than the previous default color profile. I think I need re-calibrate it, and hopely after calibrating color profile, the problem "favicon" is not came back.

You might try:
sudo apt install gnome-color-manager

You can create your own color profile:

sudo apt install argyll
