    Tried what you suggested. It opens again in a questionmark icon. No change.

    Problem solved. I locked the questionmark icon on the launchbar, then identified its .desktop file in ./local/share/applications/ and deleted it. Now everything works fine, thanks for the help.

    But you said that its desktop file was the firefox.desktop one itself.

    I had the some problem, but the cause was different. I opened Firefox using unity dash and then locked it to the launcher, and run the following:

    Code:
    brunojcm@familia-desktop:~$ gsettings get com.canonical.Unity.Launcher favorites['nautilus-home.desktop', 'chromium-browser.desktop', 'gcalctool.desktop', 'gedit.desktop', 'gnome-terminal.desktop', 'ubuntuone-installer.desktop', 'remmina.desktop', '/home/brunojcm/Desktop/firefox.desktop']
    As you can see, and I don't know why, Unity dash was suggesting my desktop icon instead of global firefox.desktop. This desktop icon was working properly, but it seems that it cannot work properly on the launcher.

    I did the following to fix:

    Code:
    brunojcm@familia-desktop:~$ rm /home/brunojcm/Desktop/firefox.desktop
    I also re-added Firefox to my launcher.
