Description

The marketplace logo at the top of the page is blurry on my non highdpi desktop. It looks like it's getting scaled down which makes it look bad. Is there a reason we don't use a properly scaled asset for desktop?

Can you take a screenshot? Also, what browser/version/OS combo are you using? Different versions of browsers (even across platforms) will use different scaling and rendering mechanisms. Just want to make sure that you're not seeing something much worse than what we think you're seeing.

I'm using FF26 w/ OSX (non retina).  It really doesn't look that bad, it's just slightly blurry and stood out to me since everything else on the site looks nice.

Fair enough, thanks. Our UX folks can furnish us with some less-bicubically downsampled assets.

What is it that you guys need? I'm not totally familiar with the way the site is scaling the logo, so I'm not sure what to give you to make it less blurry. It exists as a vector, can we just do it as an SVG like we're doing with the rest of the graphics on the site, or is it to complex?

The SVG version was too big. Also if we have a non-bitmap version of the SVG, we could potentially use that.

Can someone specify what the dimensions of the logo we need are so we can get one correctly sized? thanks
this is fixed in the desktop beta, I hear.

It does look fixed, but I see other issues with the new logo:

    https://marketplace.cdn.mozilla.net/media/fireplace/img/pretty/marketplace-beta-logo.svg?1421781007023

1. There is a weird gradient line below the basket.
2. The ® is cut off.
3. The "beta" text is too close to the "Firefox" text.

Philip? I could file separately for these issues.

Revised! @cvan was totally right, there were some weird issues with that file. New one attached, will send it off to @spasovski to swap it out.

Thanks, Philip, for fixing so quickly. It looks like the "beta" text has regressed though - it looks like it's missing the typeface. It's not set in Fira Sans anymore (looks like just the system default, Times New Roman, now).

Whoops, I didn't convert the "beta" to outlines, so if you don't have a specific version of Fira it'll show a default font. Fixed!
