In the context menu of the Firefox task bar item, we have icons for new tab, new window and new private window. Those icons are still from the Windows 7 era.

What needs to happen:
- Update the style of the icons (and make sure that they look great on the dark background that Windows uses here)
- Make them hidpi-ready (unclear whether we can specify hidpi graphics here. If not we can at least make sure that the icons we are using scale well)

None of the built in apps have good scaling icons there. Current plan is to add a 32 x 32 icon to the .ico files and see what happens.

Stephen, I think Benjamin created icons for this, right?
Could you attach them to the bug? Thanks!
