Answer:
The /favicon.ico is an automatic request that browsers make when a page first loads. 
There isn't any way to stop it, however the correct favicon.ico (located at /template_images/favicon.ico)
 is successfully fetched by the browser so there is no impact to the user.

This error can be ignored.
