I'm not actually certain if this is applicable to non-Windows platforms, so am not making this All/All. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 121140 [details] Grayrest's "M" icon Will this one work? It's the "M" icon from Grayrest's set. Oh, and I think Linux's icons use the red dino too, so this should probably be All/All.
It looks okay to me - but maybe we want to use the "M" from the splash screen? (Revolution font against an orange background?)

Dude, I dunno if you're aware of this, but... the splash screen is butt-ugly. Using its "M" for the icon = very, very bad idea.
This bug isn't about debating the quality of the artwork, it's simply about replacing the existing copyright art with something else - and something which is as "officially" Mozilla as possible. Since the current splash screen *IS* the official splash screen (like it or not) it makes the most sense to continue the artwork brand to the other elements. Having said that, I'm not sure if non-mozilla.org people can even be deciding anything here anyway.
I never claimed I was deciding anything, I was merely making a suggestion and offering an opinion. If you choose to disagree with me, well, there's not much I can do about it. I will, however, point out that the Grayrest "M" blends in better with the other Grayrest icons already in use. It accomplishes the purpose of replacing the red dino, it looks more like the throbber "M", it looks more attractive and professional than the splash screen "M", and it's already made, so there's less work. So I don't really see any way the splash screen "M" is a better choice, but hey, that's JMHO.
Sorry if I overreacted in my comment. I just wanted to fend off what seemed like an artwork debate. I'll agree that the blue M is certainly better than the current dragon in terms of this bug. Personally, I use the old Navigator wheel icon - \chrome\icons\default\main-window.ico.
I thought the Navigator wheel had similar issues. And if you're so dead-set against using the Grayrest "M", maybe the Mac OS X "M" would work too?
Mozilla 1.7 branch will not be modified, and this isn't applicable to SeaMonkey at this point. -> WORKSFORME
