Description of problem:
I realize your desire to "do your own thing (TM)."  But, rather than looking at
providing the same icons for Gnome and Kde, think about the cross-platform
issues.  I control my department's desktops.  We are still a Windows shop but
are ramping up on Linux.  For now we switch between them.  I want the Mozilla
icon consistent between platforms.  Don't go messing with third part icons. 
Same holds true for Open Office.  I won't be able to transition users if the
"sesame street school of computers (TM)" rules don't apply ("one of these things
is not like the other...")

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load Redhat
2.Wrong icons

Actual Results:  I was annoyed.

Expected Results:  Standard icons should be the same on all platforms.  They
were the same on Windows 2000 and Redhat 7.3.

Additional info:

There are those of us that are making headway in getting Linux onto the
"corporate desktops."  Your intent was to make it easier.  You are making it harder.

Sorry, wontfix.  (Besides, that's a generic "web browser" icon - it can launch
things other than just Mozilla.)

You can change it too, you know. :P
