View Full Version : [SOLVED] Firefox update and /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop

July 25th, 2010, 05:03 AM
Every time Firefox is updated it changes the /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop so it uses the "firefox" icon instead of the one I manually changed. It's very annoying because that ugly, oversized icon shows up when even the application window has a nice little Tango styled icon. Is there any way around this?

Create your own desktop launcher for Firefox and add it to your panel. Works for me on KDE.

I think making the file immutable will prevent it from being messed with. I don't know why I didn't think of that earlier, but thanks for your quick reply.

chattr +i /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
