I have managed to add a favicon in several place on my website but as I've played around with the customer view I've noticed that I've missed a few. Does anyone know all the folders that the favicon needs to be changed?

I also used this http://kb.cs-cart.co...placing-favicon and it didn't get them all. One in particular is when you open a product image in a second tab or new page.

There is no favicon generated when you open a product image, the favicon is auto-generated from the image you are viewing.

There should only be one for the front-end, which if I remember correctly is in /skins/basic/customer/images/icons/

Stellar's correct. You only need to change the one favicon in the directory /skins/yourskin/customer/images/icons/

Sorry guys but in Chrome when I right click an image and select open in new window. The image opens in a new window and I get the CS Cart stock favicon, not the favicon I have on the rest of my website. I get this in both the 2.2.4 Professional and 2.2.3 Multi Vendor.

CS-Cart V2 and V3 both use the following to load the favicon:
<link href="{$images_dir}/icons/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" />
This translates as:
/skins/your_skin/customer/images/icons/favicon.ico
You can also change the favicon in:
/skins/your_skin/admin/images/icons/favicon.ico
However, the favicon you see from the frontend is loaded from the /customer/ directory not /admin/.

Fully clear your Chrome cache after you have changed the favicon.ico in the customer location.

Edit: I just checked some V2 and V3 sites with customised favicons - the updated Favicon displays on all pages in Firefox and Chrome. In Firefox, right-click product image> view image, the favicon changes to a 16x16px version of the image being viewed, in Chrome, the favicon changes to the default Chrome favicon.
