This is a proposal for a minor enhancement to the script which executes after the 'Make Default...' button is pressed in Preferences. It is meant to complete the 'install' process of Firefox binaries from ftp.mozilla.org and remove the need for user interaction and possible confusion. Currently the 'Make Default' button - adds the necessary entries in ~/.config/mimeapps.list - and creates ~/.local/share/applications/userapp-Firefox-RANDOM.desktop however this .desktop - has NoDisplay=true - and does not have Icon=firefox my reasoning for this is that there is no function - for creating ~/.icons/ - and copying the icons to it A simple script to do so can be seen here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1164411#answer-978198 If something along those lines is included in the 'Make default...' script users would have Firefox ready for use in their desktop with one click of a button. It would not conflict with an already present instance of Firefox provided by the distribution as those use firefox.desktop or firefox-esr.desktop etc. In short: - add mkdir and copy icons commands to 'Make Default...' button's script - remove NoDisplay=true from userapp-Firefox-RANDOM.desktop - add Icon=firefox to userapp-Firefox-RANDOM.desktop
