Firefox Title Bar Icon


This is admittedly a minor problem, but does anyone know why the title bar icon for my Forefox would be the 'generic' X windows icon? When Firefox is starting I can see the program in the taskbar and it has the cute Firefox icon, but when the program actually gets up and running it has the X icon.

This is not a question about how to change the icon on the menu or the panel, but rather the icon on the title bar. Any ideas? Thanks.

I generally use the daily builds and some time during the last week they have changed the icon to the new official Firefox icon and it shows great for me. What desktop do you use? I use XFCE4 and it displays the icon as expected.

Just in case you want to change the icon on the top left here is a url for doing it. Why is it the window's icon because there was not an offical icon for Firebird supposly so the just keep the window's icon. Anyway here is that url you can change it to anything you want. So it is for windows but you can find us the basic idea to change it in Linux

Change window icon to anything you want.

That's great stuff, because I emerged it and although everything works great in it, I'm anal retentive and would like the titlebar icon to be the Firefox icon instead the old Firebird icon.

EDIT: I think I should add for people that compiled Firefox that it's installed in /usr/lib/MozillaFirefox.

I don't use the daily builds, so I've got the "original" .8 release and I'm using it with KDE 3.1.4. I'm going to use the link Tiyogi provided. I've been to that site before for other things, but I guess I just had one of those moments. Glad to hear it may be fixed in more recent builds as well.
