I suppose the problem is that the icon is compressed (pratically is a PNG file with different extension - this is supported by the modern browsers, but is not a standard ICO file format)

You can use GIMP (export -> *.ico file -> uncompressed) to have a standard icon.

Anyway (for Andrey) here there is a good C# code to convert png to ico.
