In GTK there's a number of icon size defines. For example, buttons use 24x24 and dialog icons use 48x48 by default. Gtk themes can change this setting (to any number; though only the well-known sizes make sense: 16, 22, 24, 32 and 48). The reason why this is a good thing: accessibility themes often want to display larger icon sizes and themes for devices with small screen resolutions want to use smaller icons. Firefox already handles this fine for buttons but not for dialog icons: it requests the 48x48 regardless of the theme size and displays it scaled down to the theme size. Attached you will find an example screenshot of a theme using 32x32 dialog icons. Also affected are warning dialogs for example.
No longer relevant with Photon theme.
