[Solved] Waterfox 56.2.12 lost its icon

Postby dclement » 13 Jul 2019 09:59

Hi all,

Just a small remark about the latest Waterfox update. I noticed that the icon was gone. Indeed, there's no more /icons folder under /opt/waterfox/browser

This is easily solved by retrieving this /icon folder from the previous deb and putting it back to its place.

BR, Daniel

The icon moved, it's now under /opt/waterfox/browser/chrome/icons/default/ - same location as in firefox. If you copy the old folder, make sure your folder doesn't have any "foxes" in the icon. The new icon has only water references, no foxes, due to license reasons.

I'll put it on my todo-list: change path in waterfox.desktop.

Oh, I see. I didn't look for it there, because there was still that /opt/waterfox/icons/mozicon128.png which is a (broken) link to /opt/waterfox/browser/icons/mozicon128.png. I only tried to restore the link, but obviously it wasn't the best of workarounds.

I had a bit of time and updated the waterfox package with fixed symlinks to new icon.

Most probably license reasons. Mozilla can get really unfriendly about them. The fox is theirs.

Yes. I doubt they will make new friends this way.
Then perhaps even the "mozicon128.png" name (for the link) is under threat? (Probably not the best choice either: "mozzicone" in Italian means "cigarette butt" :-) )

Anyway, I'm marking the thread solved.
