Here's a simple testcase:
 http://people.mozilla.org/~dholbert/tests/favicon/test1.html

Firefox 41 (currently on Nightly, hitting release in late September)
supports SVG favicons. (Earlier versions have partial support due to a
bug with our favicon cache - the SVG favicon would work on first load,
but would fail to show up on subsequent loads. That was fixed here:
 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=366324 )

>From my brief testing with my testcase above (Chrome 45 dev channel on
linux, Edge on Win10, Safari 8 on Yosemite), it doesn't look like other
browser support SVG favicons right now, though.
