Description n0dalus 2006-04-28 12:36:30 EDT
Since some time around December 2004 (according to the ChangeLog on the spec
file), Fedora has been shipping a default.xpm logo that is some what uglier than
the official logo. I'm not sure why it was introduced (firefox.xpm in the spec),
but the screenshot attached shows that the official branded xpm distributed with
the source tarball (mozilla/other-licenses/branding/firefox/default.xpm) is much

In the spec file, instead of:
%{__cp} %{SOURCE23} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{ffdir}/chrome/icons/default/default.xpm
%{__cp} %{SOURCE23} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{ffdir}/icons/default.xpm

We should copy the xpm out of mozilla/other-licenses/branding/firefox in the source.

Sorry if I'm hi-jacking your bug, but the thunderbird icon is even uglier, just
a default X icon, at least someone posted a workaround ...

Fedora is really slow at fixing small bugs. That's why many of us just stop
reporting them.
Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2006-08-20 11:00:54 EDT
Fedora is really fast at fixing many bugs, but there are several serious and
high-profile problem spots. "Anything related to Firefox" is unfortunately one
of those spots.

This was actually fixed a bit ago.
