Hi i have 1 question.

I Installed Windows 8, and Firefox Nightly 19.

Now, when i set Internet explorer as default browser, 1 from IE i pin websites to the Windows 8 Start Menu, i get nice icons like this: http://s13.postimage.org/d7fhvd7mf/IE_standaard_browser.png

Now when i set Firefox Nightly as defaut browser, the icons in start menu changes to default ugly icons like this: http://s15.postimage.org/ytgq7576z/Firefox_standaard_browser.png
