Thanks again. Still having problems. I'm not sure which TBB version you're looking at, but latest versions of TBB have the same icon as Firefox. In your shot w/ the blue globe, is that open app tab on task bar for "Aurora" or Firefox? I'm dealing w/ TBB, not Firefox.
Your path shows the main-window.ico is in Firefox
, not TBB. I'm only interested in changing the open app tab icon for Aurora
, Newest versions from Tor Project no longer say "Aurora," rather "Firefox" on main menu button. The icon shown on Help>About page in TBB
for TBB 2.2.35-8 shows default same icon as Firefox 11, not the one you show. Either you changed that, or have an older TBB ver. But, that's not my main interest.
1st, WHERE are you getting the icons
to replace the default ones that would be shown in TBB open app tab
? Maybe the type image (before
naming the file "main-window.ico"), it's size, square / not square, etc., makes a diff?? I picked a small icon from windows shell32.dll (I think). Saved it in .png format, then renamed it .ico
I even took the same icon & ran it through Irfanview, checking its properties & saving as an .ico file; saved it to path described. TBB was closed during file changes. After reopening TBB, open app tab still shows the orange firefox logo.
My TBB zipped pkg is extracted to folder TBB 2.2.35-8, but the 1st main folder
of the extracted pkg is "Tor Browser
," (default name) which is the folder (Tor Browser) where I added the path "\chrome\icons\default\main-window.ico". Either my path is wrong (in TBB) or the icon isn't suitable, because it does NOT change the icon in open app tab on task bar, as your image w/ blue globe shows.
Q: Did you HAVE to select the alternate icon from the TBB / Firefox files (assume either TBB.exe / firefox.exe files) or will any icon of suitable size do?
And again, "hide extensions of known file types" is unchecked.
