I have an entry for the web browser Firefox in my start/favorites/kicker/KDE menu which has no icon. All other entries are OK. The text reads "Web Browser" and, smaller and gray, "Firefox Web Browser". I looked in Favorites, search and App/INet

How do I restore the Firefox icon?

@enzotib he's using KDE, no gnome-panel – Dirk Hartzer Waldeck Oct 6 '11 at 9:58
Aaron, does FF have an icon under the Applications/Internet menu? – Dirk Hartzer Waldeck Oct 6 '11 at 10:01
@Dirk: Nope, no icon anywhere. I looked in Favorites, search and App/INet – Aaron Digulla Oct 7 '11 at 10:12

  1. right click on the KDE icon in the bottom left corner (Kickoff Application Launcher) and choose Edit Applications
  2. select the entry for FireFox and click on the icon area to the right of the Name field to pick a new icon for the menu entry
  3. you should be able to choose a FireFox icon in the dialogue that opens up, or browse to a location where you have one

Thanks, that works mostly. After saving the changes, the icon was still missing in "Favorites" but after removing the entry and adding it again, the icon showed up. Thanks. – Aaron Digulla Oct 10 '11 at 9:46
