From your favorites menu drag the link to your desktop, now you know the reason for the different sizes. Icons have evolved substantially since the Win95 days to take advantage of the higher resolution screens.

I cannot imagine what the heck my computer is doing. BUT this is so minor, this wrong favicon, unless it's an indicator that my computer is showing the first symptoms of illness. Great.
Since no one else seemed to figure it out for you: CD changed their favicon - there's nothing wrong with your computer.

Thank you Tek_Freek ... figured it was my computer since a Q didn't seem to have anything to do with City-Data. Now, if only I could figure out if it's my computer or google maps that changed its face today.

That "Q" is the end of a magnifying glass. Adding the entire handle would have been tough.

My web browser, Chrome, has been switching between the two lately. It had the new logo earlier today, but now it's back to the old one.

Well, so it is! A magnifying glass does make better sense than a Q, although the more I think about it, Q for "Questions" makes sense since city-data is all about information and answers.

PeachSalsa - thank you for letting me know google maps did change.

When the looks of things change without warning nor explanation, I can't help but be a bit paranoid that my computer is going to croak on me as if it can't interpret code very well anymore. Even though I back up my folders to an external drive often, replacing my computer isn't an expense I want to shell out at the moment. So, when the Q/magnifying glass favicon appeared out of nowhere and then google maps top left box for address input changed to occupying the entire left 1/3 of my screen (and most of it white space), I thought oh no a blue screen of death is coming soon. Thrilled to know that ain't happenin'!

Um, mine doesn't do that. Still just a single line at the top left. Firefox v41.0 here.
