Isisombululo esikhethiwe

-Find your version. If you are, go download Firefox 69 source and extract it. Alternatively, you can download an older version of Firefox, install it in a temporary folder, and extract the images from Mozilla Firefox\browser\VisualElements folder too. Or, you can download the brand folder alone here. This one is taken from Firefox 52.

   -If you are downloading the source, you can find the brand icons and firefox logos inside firefox-69.0.source.tar\firefox-69.0\browser\branding\official. This way you could get the logo for all the associated channels, including Aurora.
   -Once you have got your preferred images, navigate to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\VisualElements and replace those two flatty circles with the good old fiery glorious foxes.
   -Open task manager and find Windows Explorer. Right click and restart it. This should apply the changes to the firefox logos in the start menu.

~Getting the old firefox icon for the executable~

Now, for the firefox application icon, you’ll need something like resource hacker to replace the icon sets with the old one for firefox.exe.

   -Get the icon set from an old version.
   -Open the new firefox.exe with resource hacker.
   -Replace the icon in Icon Group 1: 1033 and 32512:1033.


You can get the old icon sets from the older exe versions; either by installing an older version of the browser in a temporary directory or downloaded from the web.

If you don’t like using resource hacker and modifying the exe, you can use the change icon setting by right clicking Firefox shortcut from C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs and setting it to the old firefox icon.

The Firefox program no longer includes the old branding. It's been updated.

It would be possible (if you really wanted) to set your own custom icon for the shortcut on your computer (see the Change the Icon of Any Shortcut section of How to Customize Your Icons in Windows by How-To Geek), but that would only change the shortcut. The new branding would still be featured inside the Firefox browser.

/usr/lib/firefox/browser/chrome/icons/default is where the icons are stored. I replaced them with the old ones and now the old icons are back in most places. I don´t know why it was changed to an icon that physically hurts to look at.

I have the same problem. I like the former one and dislike this one. I do not want to lose the old icon. I am glad that I can just get it back by just replacing the file rather than learning how to compile source code. I don't know why it was changed to an icon that physically hurts to look at, too.

You've foisted unwanted changes on me for the last time. Goodbye Mozilla. It used to be nice knowing you until you decided to do crap without asking if crap was wanted or needed.

What a bunch of recalcitrant children.
