Why do I see a different icon for the browser in my Mac task base?

Posted

In my iOS task bar I now have two different icons for the Firefox browser and I wonder whether it's safe. I have the usual Firefox flame icon and some iOS tool icon.

If you have a problem (pencil) with the Firefox icon in the Dock then try to reinstall Firefox and drag the current Firefox application to the Trash.

one icon is maybe the install DMG you deleted when you moved / copied the application into your application folder. You can get rid of it, I believe.

Apparently it meant that I had to do an upgrade, which I did. Now the icon has disappeared and the usual icon is back.
