Alternative Firebird Icon
The creator of the default Firebird themes has also created a nice Firebird icon. It's easier on the eyes than the current red blotch. The Mozilla Firebird site has instructions on how to change the window icon.
Yup, I prefer this icon than the current firebird icon. Hope it gets adopted :)
I think the 'F' looks just plain silly. It reminds me of a Mac Donalds menu or a brand of cheap pink chewing gum. But worse: it doesn't stand out, nor in the Start menu nor the Quick launch... Nice try though.
When I first saw it, it looked much more like a wing than an F, which I think is the point. I like it a lot better than the crummy fire icon, and I think it fits in better with the overall Windows XP theme more so than any other FB icons I've seen. I like it.
Actually I liked the ones that were able to be downloaded as extensions better.. But these are ok.
Ack, what's with the globe? Just the F without the earth would be just fine.
por fin se actualiza blogzilla.. que bueno estan estos nuevos iconos de firebird justo mas descentes. saludos
Hey I dig these icons, although I think the F on the document should be raised or lowered just a few pixels, since the current top edge of the F coincides with the paper fold and gives the icon a sort of double line which draws too much attention towards the fold of the document.
i agree - lose the globe and document, an "f" all by itself would suffice
IMO, if you get rid of the globe, you should at least keep the sheet of paper. At least on Windows, the paper tells you that the icon is for a document, not the application itself.
Mozilla head + F could be nice as well
I prefer the one here.
This is by far the best icons i have seen for Firebird and Thunderbird.
The problem is that the small version of this icon looks terrible - therefore it's not viable.
this icon is great.
not only does it not look like a red pipe of poop, its imaginative.
the F looks like it's wings for the world.
wings.. bird.. wwweb browser.. globe.. i dunno..
it just makes sence.
The red flames icon is not professional, but this F wing icon is just not serious at all. I keep waiting for a good one.
I liked this one from the very moment I saw it. First I thought it's Ikaros' wings, only to later realise it's also F for Firebird. I like the globe too, since it's what IE also uses to symbolise the Internet. Moreover, I like the fact that this one is not aggressive as many FB icon designs seem to be.
Nope, I don't like it at all.
It looks like bad anime wings.
PS: the globe thing is way too cliche
these icons are an improvement!?
They are great...
anyways, they are already the official icons in the latest Firebird nightly builds :D
The Mozilla Dragon Head should be put on the Globe as a body and the paper with folds should be it's arms, legs and tail all the while the dragon breathes "F"'s like a stream of FyRe!!!!!
Make your own icons you damned whinly little bitches..
Very well done - i like these alot and imho they should be adopted as the default icons since the ones that comes with firebird today sucks bigtime (the red/orange fire looks like something from the old X11/FVWM era).
Well done and keep the good work up!
You who complained that the document+F didn't look like an application icon - that icon IS for documents. The one with the globe = the application icon.
