======================================================= SOLVED! See: https://railsforum.com/topic/1975-help-me-understa... ======================================================= (Note: Since the question is still unsolved, I crossposted it at https://railsforum.com/topic/1975-help-me-understa...) I've put my favicon into app/assets/images and include in my header <%= favicon_link_tag 'my_favicon.jpg' %> The favicon is correctly recognized by the browser, so it works perfectly. When viewing the source code, I see to my surprise that the following HTML code is generated: <link href="/assets/my_favicon.jpg" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" /> Aside from the MIME type (I had expected that rails would generate image/jpeg), what really puzzles me is the path. The file is definitely in /assets/images, not in /assets . How can the browser locate the file?
