    Dashboard – settings – upload blog picture on WP.com blogs.

    I tried that suggestion, but the favicon remains the same. It told me that it was my new (blavtar?). Something like that.

    I’m pretty sure it is not possible to add a favicon to WordPress.com blogs. You can easily add a favicon if you’re hosting your blog yourself and using WordPress.org, however.

    A favicon is called a blavatar at wordpress.com and it is possible to have one.

    This explains how to do it. There’s even a video:

    “A Blavatar is an image associated with a blog. It will be displayed as the favicon for your blog, which shows up in a browser’s address bar and on browser tabs.”

    I guess this topic is resolved! Kristiehewlett has not confirmed it though, alas! Adding a favicon is so easy! It appears after some time though so some patience is needed (and in most cases you need to clear your cache). :)

    Whoblogger 555, as I said in the previous reply, it takes some time; clear your cache and wait for some ten minutes.

    Oh I was totally mistaken then; it is indeed possible to have a favicon on WordPress.com, so my apologies for previously stating otherwise. Good news! I’ll try this out now. Thanks.
