    Default Re: Firefox is shown in taskbar with a different icon

    I forgot to say: Opensuse Leap 42.2. Plasma 5.8.
    It seems I have found the solution.
    firefox and thunderbird are GTK applications, so its icons and configuration are dfined at system settings->Application style->Gnome application style (GTK), so they are gnome related.
    So i force reinstallation with yast of all icons packages and most of gnome packages and now it seems to work fine.

    I think I found the error

    In ~/.local/share/applications I have a lot of .desktop files with the icons of the applications.
    In the case of firefox, i have a file firefox.desktop with this content

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Exec=/home/fernando/Desktop/Firefox
    Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/vlc.png
    Name=Firefox
    Type=Application
    I don't know why this "/usr/share/pixmaps/vlc.png" I didn't put it there, but it seems that task manager use sometimes this icon and othr times other icon from another place.

    Changing to

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Exec=firefox
    Icon=firefox
    Name=Firefox
    Type=Application

    solved the problem
