I was able to track down a regression here and it lead to this:

f36212ee8d4a	Paolo Amadini — Bug 1265359 - Enable blocking of potentially unwanted downloads. r=gcp
So this is not a regression, it was introduced while enabling blocking unwanted and uncommon downloads.
Bug 1265341 made the icons look nice. Paolo, do you think we should uplift it or live with the lo-dpi icons for 48 & 49?

This affects a very small number of users, those on Linux encountering a blocked download. Given that the styling changes from bug 1265341 also have some risk of visual regressions on less common platforms, I'm tempted to say that we shouldn't uplift to Beta, although we could consider Developer Edition. Jonathan, what do you think?

I'm not entirely sure on the risks to other platforms, but certainly there is a possibility. This is how the icons looked to me when I tested in Ubuntu and my patch changes this. 
I suspect dev edition uplift is potentially a safer bet though.
Maybe checking all platforms with mozscreenshots is worth doing first though?

Let's decide in the team meeting.

Not for beta. For Aurora DevEdition. Thank you.
