hi :-) The Program icon in windows (32) is very nice, except its background color is the same as the background color in the Quick Launch bar. This makes the icon "almost" invisible. Almost since i can see some dark grey lines.
This occurs on the Windows startmenu and file explorer as well. The problem seems to be that the background is transparent and the foreground is very close to the default Windows button color, which is used on the startmenu and it's too bright for file explorer, which uses a white background.

Mozillazine has an icon page up - http://www.mozillazine.org/chrome/icons.html. I'm using the moz-communicator.ico icon from the Windows list as my desktop icon, and it looks pretty good. If even temporary, this would be better than the gray M, I think.
I thought this one was fixed with the new icons in the mozilla build. Can we mark this one fixed? eli?

This issue remains on 2000031008 Win32 Mozilla build.
*** Bug 29316 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Basically, the main point of all these program icon bugs are that the icons at least on windows suck for mozilla right now. Mozillazine has a ton of icons, in http://www.mozillazine.org/jason/icons/, http://www.mozillazine.org/splash/, and http://www.mozillazine.org/chrome/icons.html . Lots of good icons, yet we still have an awful grey icon for moz. If any work needs to be done on these, i can do it, just drop me a line with a choice, and i can fix em up for you.
reassign it to don to find an eng. owner. we'll need an engineer to own this bug for mozilla. don, anyone from your group? Mozillazine has many newly modified desktop icons that's better than what we have for mozilla build. But I dont kow who can check in the icons.

Just to chime in here, the Windows icon is nigh-unusable when added to the Quick Launch bar, which is going to be (based on 4.x experience) something that will eventually automatically be done by the commercial installer. Would someone please fix this? Thanks.

I submitted MozillaZine some icons for Mozilla (http://www.mozillazine.org/chrome/icons.html), but the newest ones are at: http://au.4mg.com/moz.htm I've also had many problems with the current icon. It becomes distorted and unrecognizable when its in 16x16 form (normal is 32x32, Windows shrinks it for the toolbar and in the upper-left)- I think I fixed it in moz-m_gray.ico
Moving to XPApps. I'm violating bug etiquette and assigning it a target milestone myself, so that it appears on Don's radar screen. CC:ing Ben, in case he knows someone more appropriate than Don for adding new Mozilla Win32 icons (irregardless of which set they are.)

nav triage team: This bug looks a little old; the mozilla app icon is now the long tail gecko. Looks ok on taskbar under win2k. Not stopping beta1 for this. Marking nsbeta1-
It may look okay on the taskbar, but the desktop icon in the 0.7 version is almost invisible on the default Windows background colour.
If we want to ensure that the icon shows up on most desktop and toolbar background color schemes, we need a multi-color icon and preferably one with a dark border. The current icon fails on both accounts. I use moz-communicator.ico from AU's page (http://au.4mg.com/moz.htm) on my desktop, and I quite like it.
<copy and pasted from the mozilla wishlist newsgroup> There is actually a second icon (that i found because i like having choices) included in Mozilla: create a windows shortcut right click the icon and choose properties go to change icon choose browse, browse to "D:\Program Files\mozilla\mozctl.dll" and you will get the choice of a the head of the Mozilla mascot/lizard whatever its called.
if it's green [and ~it's not easy being green~] then it's (c) netscape and we can't use it. Yes I already asked about that critter. sorry :-(
Marking nsbeta1- bugs as future to get off the radar.

this has been seen on the desktop too, maybe Mozilla needs a more colorful icon? In bug 87973 the suggestion was to outline the icon.

Currently we are not changing any icons. No one likes that position but the problem relates to copyright and legal issues. No new green creatures will be accepted. Please read the bug report before commenting. And in the case of this bug report there is probably no reason to comment until someone explains the legal position.

Does the RED lizard logo (red lizard facing right) violate any of Netscape's copyrights?

The problem is, on NT4, with the default background, you cannot see the Mozilla icon !

Icons were changed recently. I don't use the installer, but I assume the icon on the desktop is now the red mozilla head on the blue triangle. Can someone confirm that this appears properly now on the NT desktop?
I can't comment for NT, but in Win98SE this is no longer a problem. The icon is now the red lizard head and the blue triangle. I did have some problems getting this new icon to stick, but recreating my shortcuts got around that (and I figure it was a Windows problem). I'm going to mark this fixed. Feel free to reopen if other Windows varieties are still broken.
