Firefox 90.0a1 20210422093115 on Windows 8.1 with 125% zoom on OS level

The app menu badge for an available update is so tiny and blurry that the arrow is unrecognizable.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Install not the latest build.
  2. Disable automatic updates in the Settings (it might be necessary to start it with the -offline argument from the command line to be able to change this before it gets updated to the latest version).
  3. Go online (Alt key > menu File).
  4. Wait for update to get detected or trigger the background check (haven't the code at hand).

App menu and Fxa badges are simplified to small dot or triangle depending in the notification type (inside symbols removed). Please see attached mini spec for placement and details.

We're going to need to introduce the new circle icon (notification-fill-12.svg), and make sure we use it here:

This is marked as priority2a, Is that something we should uplift to beta or do we let it ride the 90 train? Thanks

Since this is icon related work and low risk, I think it makes sense to request uplift

Hi, I was trying to confirm the fix on this issue and it seems that only the update available Badge has been updated to the green dot displayed on the Hamburger menu.. but in the case for the Unable to Update notification the Exclamation mark is still displayed inside the badge for warning sign.

Is this bug strictly related to the Update available notifications ? cause from the screenshots in Comment 1 the Warning sign should not have the exclamation mark inside the badge.

I will add a screenshot of this case.

Hi Rares, this bug was just related to the update notification.

We're going to handle the warning icon in Bug 1707190.
