Attached image extension icon bug

Affected versions

  • Fx89.0b2
  • Fx90.0a1

Affected platforms

  • Windows 10
  • Ubuntu 18.04
  • macOS 11

Steps to reproduce

  1. Launch Firefox.
  2. Navigate to about:addons
  3. Inspect all the available icons.

Expected result

  • All the icons are in accordance to the new proton design.

Actual result

  • The extension icon is still from the old design

Regression range

  • This is not a regression.

Additional notes

  • Other icons have the new design implemented (e.g. Plugins icon)
Blocks: 1694394
Whiteboard: [proton-aboutpages]

The theme icon was also reported in bug 1704746. Since the plugin icon has been updated and we do have new icons for most of these (I'm not seeing one for Dictionaries or Available Updates, but maybe we can find placeholders) it probably makes sense to update these icons. Alternatively we could revert the plugin icon to the old version for the Plugins category.

Romain, how should we proceed here? Currently the icons are mixing old and new. You said bug 1704746 was out of scope, but in my opinion we need to do something here to be consistent.

Likewise for about:preferences, it is mixing new and old icons

Has STR: --- → yes

Agreed that it would be nice to make this change for consistency reasons. Making this one a P2a. Do you think about:preferences and about :addons should be addressed in the same bug? If so about:preferences should be done with higher priority given it's a more visible area.
