The icon is clearly not part of the core DOM...

I am new at this so please keep that in mind. So this is not a bug as such which should have been added here, is that correct?
Can you please provide some steps to reproduce and also a testcase to show the problem ?

Have 2 versions of Firefox, one v 44.0a2 and the other 42. Install an add-on which will utilize the notifications.notify API such as HTTPSPATROL. Go to for example an each Firefox version and you can see the difference. Version 42 will be the correct display of the notification. Also see the images provided for guidance.

Thanks for this.. The removal has caused some add-on to change unexpectedly.

Can the max-height and max-width be added manually?
