Since the window icons used in GTK2 have been switched from XPM to PNG the icon used in the various taskbars on Linux (found on KDE4 and Windowmaker) are not sized correctly. KDE4 scales a very small icon to a bigger size and Windowmaker just displays a very small icon in the dock. This could easily be a Gtk bug (it seems to work with Gnome though).

We figured out that the taskbar is using the default16.png in every case it seems while for example the task switcher "Alt-TAB" is using default32.png in the test.
This is the reason Firefox should provide icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor, as all other apps do.
Some KDE developer just found that this was a bug in KDE4 which has been fixed in their SVN a few minutes ago. So I guess we can say that this is no Firefox and no Gtk issue but actually a bug in the taskbar and dock implementations of the affected window managers. They get a list of icons correctly and need to figure out which one is the best for their usage. So WFM as it needs to be fixed somewhere else.
