Bug 1073240 added some images for use in the about:customizing theme selector and for the default theme icon in the Add-ons Manager:

These are silhouetted versions of the Firefox logo, which means they're covered under trademark. As such, they need to not be part of the build unless --official-branding is enabled. If that isn't enabled, we need to use images that do not contain a version of the Firefox logo.

So those images need moved into /browser/branding/official

I suggest that we add images to the other branding options in browser/branding, using a similar silhouetted version of the relevant logo.

While we're at it, we should do an inventory to ensure there are no other such images in the tree that are similarly affected.

Michael or Stephen, do we have an unbranded silhouetted logo that can be used when branding is disabled?

Alternatively if we don't, we could just take the "unbranded" logo and make a resized copy that fits the same size as the silhouetted logo and just use that for unbranded builds.

I talked with Stephen today and he thinks we should just use the unbranded logo that he attached to the bug in place of the Firefox silhouetted logo. So this bug is a lot simpler now. The file for the branded logo should just be replaced with this new attachment.
Summary: Move silhouetted versions of Firefox logo into browser/branding → Replace silhouetted versions of Firefox logo with unbranded logo
Stephen, can you also provide the "aero" version and the 2x version(theme-switcher-icon@2x) of the unbranded logo?
Also, the theme-switcher-icon is different for each OS, for example, the one for osx is a bit darker than the one for linux. Are you ok with having the same icon for every OS?
