Is it still safe to click that Icon?
yes, it's safe. The bookmark hasn't changed. The icon was updated because the browser saw a new favicon.ico when you visited the site. You can probably fix the bookmark, or indeed it will probably be easier to delete and recreate it.

(Or, Marcus may well be right and it will fix itself when you next use the bookmark without an interstitial page from the wifi provider.)

(I have some javascript somewhere which forces a specific icon.)
Thank you for that reassurance. The bookmark icon did not fix itself accessing the site using 3G/4G - I haven't tried on WiFi. I hadn't deleted it in case I needed to see what nasties might be in the file - but without inspecting the file contents all looks OK, except that if I had given anyone instructions to click on such-and-such icon to do something important, they'd now have bought a new phone.
