If this is under windows:

Note: Web site icons, also known as "FavIcons", are currently not supported on Windows. We plan to address this in a future release.

Qicon icon = m_page.settings()->iconForUrl(url+ icon_url);
is the icon you get a valid icon?
Are you sure the site implements a special icon?

Returns the web site's icon for url.

If the web site does not specify an icon OR if the icon is not in the database, a null QIcon is returned.
