Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 701

you can always google waterfox, select google images, pick the one you like, save it,use irfanview to resize/save as icon, right click the desktop icon, select 'change icon' button & select the one you just saved. that's what i do for firefox nightly to get rid of the horrid blue blob. the teeny icon in the titlebar is too small for me to worry about messing with replacing the one embedded in the exe file.

 

there is an addon called 'rebrand' you can use to change the icons. it produces an unsigned .xpi addon file that you add manually, so if used in the latest nightly/aurora builds you may need to set about:config variable xpinstall.signatures.required to false.

 

here's the old waterfox 64x64 pixel icon: had to convert it to a .png, but you can save & convert it back to a .ico

For me the issue with the new logo icon is my eyes being drawn to the black center instead of the "fox." I wish the black was more subdued so that fox wouldn't be so dominated.

On the 4k youtube thing.... I'm finding no issues with Firefox 40 but sputtering like crazy with Waterfox 40.0.2

Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

No problem with the 4k vid thing. I've had 40.0.2 for a week and no problems at all. It works really well. Thanks MrAlex, job well done.thumb.gif

Exactly the same for me. It took me a long time to get my eyes focused off the black abyss and locate the blue fox. Something needs to be done to focus on the fox. Perhaps turning the foxes head towards us & adding a small black dot for an eye.

Although, I like the new modern style better.

I like the new icon, however wouldn't it be possible to have both? Allowing ppl to chose in installation.

Ooh, strange issue! So to reproduce this, I just have to create a new directory with the file dialog open in Waterfox?
Yepp, all I do is click a download link and in the file dialog I either right click and chose new folder or click on the new folder button. Crashes every time.
Found out what was causing it.. Not WF at all. I had tested to install CFI Shelltoys v.7.5 and that made explorer to crash when creating folders in download dialog.. After all it's an old Win XP software.. Sorry about me shouting MrAlex... smile.gif

 

No worries, glad you've found the issue :-)

you should update the 'old' logo in post  no. 1 with it.

 

Thanks! I really like it to and it's generally got a positive reception.

Could do, but how would I let people choose the icon? Via the installer?

Hmm fair enough, I'll see if I can make the centre a bit lighter.

I'm struggling to reproduce this as well. Gets difficult with so many different system configs! I'll try a few other systems hopefully I can see what's happening! And thanks, glad it's working well for you :-).

"Change the icon of any Application Shortcut" here:

I suggest tweaking the new icon for the next WF release, but embedding the old one so that method linked above can quickly be used to change back at user preference. smile.gif
