Thunderbird icon is inappropriate for its job

Making moves

The icon is not good. I'm saying that as a long-time user of Mozilla products. Your Thunderbird icon doesn't fit the bill any more. Email apps have semi-standardized on using an image or cartoon of an envelope as the outline shape for the mail app. You guys need to do something to make your app less like a circular blob and more like a Mail-shaped app icon. Integrate the Thunderbird theme into the envelope shape in a novel way, but don't totally obscure the known shape. This is bad:


Also, include the word "mail" in the title of the app, and/or encode both "mail" and "email" as an alternative look-up term for Windows Start menu. If I type "mail" I should see "Thunderbird" or "Thunderbird mail" in the search results.
