Attached image screenshot
The favicon for for Firefox 4 beta 2 has white artifacts around the A, the white pixels should probably be transparent, maybe we are using a gif image with no real transparency instead of png. This is very visible on a dark theme like Ubuntu's default, I don't know for other platforms but I believe Windows Seven also uses a dark theme and might be affected as well.

See screenshot.
Is this a regression against beta 1 or even 3.6.7?
This is not a regression, 3.6.7 also has a bad icon, I hadn't noticed before because the Linux distro version that I used does not ship with the search plugin but the en-US one which has a different favicon 
(beta 1 was en-US only btw)
Thanks Pascal. Kev, is that an already known problem?
Sort of a dupe of bug 580510, I guess. New icons were provided in bug 421613, but they weren't updated in localized plugins.

Er, bug 421745, I mean.
what gavin said. what's in the en-US defaults is the icon Amazon has auth'd for distribution. if it's not changed in the locales, it should be on all current branches as soon as possible.

Pascal, can we close this bug?
The Amazon logo in the French build is not the same as the one in the en-US build.
Blocks: 421745
As well as Wikipedia & Ebay.

Is there any reason that would prevent me from taking those in en-US files to update fr?
I don't think so - I'd recommend you do exactly that!

> Wikipedia
French (map of the world) and en (W) Wikipedia search plugin logos were different at the beginning (bug 380785). I don't know why.

> Ebay.
It's a consequence of bug 812682.
