Paul, did we have a bug tracking this? Is this by design? It might be better to only have one icon there, i.e. remove the "using geolocation" icon when the doorhanger is shown.

Component: Site Identity → Site Permissions
Flags: needinfo?(pbz)

I don't think we have a bug for this yet. Technically it's correct, but I can see how it could be confusing for users.
It happens when a user accepts geolocation access temporarily (checkbox unchecked) and the website makes another geolocation request.
Hiding the icon while the doorhanger is shown would work.

This issue still occurs in the latest Nightly 77.0a1 (2020-04-13) on macOS 10.15. Will update the flags accordingly.

Paul, do you think this issue is a valid or an invalid bug?

Flags: needinfo?(pbz)

This is a valid bug (see my comment above). Not something we want to prioritize at the moment though.

Flags: needinfo?(pbz)

Because this bug's Severity has not been changed from the default since it was filed, and it's Priority is P3 (Backlog,) indicating it has been triaged, the bug's Severity is being updated to S3 (normal.)

Severity: normal → S3

Reproducible in the latest Nightly 78.0a1 (2020-05-27) as well. Updated the 78 flag accordingly.

Reproducible on latest Nightly version 79.0a1 (2020-06-24) on Ubuntu 20.04.

Reproducible on latest Nightly version 80.0a1 (2020-07-07) on Ubuntu 18.04. Flags are changed accordingly.
