Description Polyfragmentiert 2009-11-07 12:34:48 PST
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv: Gecko/20091028 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Firefox/3.5.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20091028 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Firefox/3.5.4

I am following Aza's video of the new 0.6 features. An available png icon (I checked the URL, of course) is not displayed on Ubuntu Karmic here. The code is:

  label: "Translate!",
  icon: "",

  command: function(){;

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open about:jetpack
2.Paste the code and apply it via the textlink "try out this code" below the embedded editor
3. See the page context menu entry without the icon
Actual Results:  
No icon displayed

Expected Results:  
Referenced icon displayed before the context menu entry

Something I forgot before: I'd tried using an .ico file before resorting to the .png, didn't work either. Assigning and diplaying an .ico for a slidebar does work.

This is most likely due to Gnome, which doesn't show menuitem icons by default except for page favicons.  Open up a terminal, run this command, and restart Firefox:

gconftool-2 --type bool --set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons true

Does that work?
