I switched on the old Netbook and copied over the files. The Arch
package includes sizes up to 384Ã384 and some more in between (most
notably 64Ã64). The icons were simply called firefox.png. The ones in my
Gentoo system were called firefox-bin. It didnât work at first, so I
went into /usr/share/applications/firefox-bin.desktop and changed the
Icon= line to firefox.png. And now it worked.Â

I have no idea what is different. To rule out the addition of other
sizes, I renamed all firefox.png that were not previously available with
firefox-bin-icon.png, and the icon still shows up big. Even reverting
the .desktopâs Icon= back to firefox-icon-bin does not bring back the
problem. Iâm at witâs end, but happy nonetheless, for now I have what I

As mentioned, I usually log out and back in, just to be sure. And I
delete the caches while logged out.

$ cd /usr/share/icons/hicolor && find | sort | grep firefox

The *-arch files are from the arch package, but renamed so that the set
of arch icons (firefox.png) serves the same sizes as the old firefox-bin
set. firefox-bin-icon must be from an old attempt at solving this issue.

$ equery files firefox-bin | grep hicolor.*png

So letâs close this. I have no idea why, but itâs working now.
