Its hard to test this bug because I don't know how much the OS is caching in terms of matching icons to apps. I could reproduce this bug a bunch at first, but as time went on it got harder and harder to repro.

Every time I could get a copy of Firefox to repro consistently, all I had to do was open up its info.plist and re-save it in UTF-16 (all of them were initially Western encoded). Either we're not making any attempt at UTF-16 or we're mixing encodings, and in either case we just need to get our story straight on encoding Info.plist.

I should note that the Thunderbird icon shows up just fine and its Info.plist file is also Western according to Xcode. So its not *necessarily* a problem, but it seems that it is for Firefox.

I think that this is another problem caused by relaunching the app using NSTask.  It appears that Activity Monitor shows things properly when the app is launched via LaunchServices (from the Finder, a Dock tile, etc.) but when Firefox relaunches itself, the process name shows up as "firefox-bin" (instead of Firefox) and the icon is missing.
