We should change Firefox icon accordingly Apple Human Interface Guidelines. There is already icons on internet.
I think that FireFox should update it's icon to follow up Human Interface Guidelines.
getting kinda cringy now..
Its the only app on my mac with the old design directives.. (not squared)...
It's great to hear your thought on updating the Firefox icon(s).
Our team is currently working on it, and all the Firefox browsers will soon have a square-round icon for macOS. This will meet the Apple icon guideline.
Thank you for providing your idea and feel free to ask any questions meanwhile.
Thanks @jhwkim for the good news!
This means we have upgraded the status to "In development" and will continue to provide you all with updates here.
Please feel free to keep the conversation going, ask any questions, and stay tuned 😁
I should mention that there is a "standard" scaling for circular macOS icons within Apple's design guidelines, which both Safari and Chrome already follow. I hope Firefox's macOS icon will be scaled the same — as it will fit in with other icons on the platform. Here is an image demonstrating the alignment:
Standard sizes for circular icons in macOS 11+ are as follows:
|actual resolution||@1x||@2x||circle width / height|
|1024x1024 px||N/A||512x512@2x||710x710 px|
|512x512 px||512x512@1x||256x256@2x||356x356 px|
|256x256 px||256x256@1x||128x128@2x||178x178 px|
|128x128 px||128x128@1x||N/A||88x88 px|
|64x64 px||N/A||32x32@2x||44x44 px|
|32x32 px||32x32@1x||16x16@2x||20x20 px|
|16x16 px||16x16@1x||N/A||10x10 px|
Also, after testing various background colors for the icon on different wallpapers and within the context of other macOS icons, this gradient (composed of three colors from Firefox's brand palette — #9059FF, #7543E3, & #582ACB) feels by far the most natural imo:
When will the firefox icon be adapted to the macbook dock.
Thank you very much for your work.
A quand l’icône de firefox adapté au dock des macbook.
Merci beaucoup pour votre travail.
The firefox icon is still not updated which creates a visual disharmony for me, I hope they change it soon.
Supeeeeer - Merci a vous
I’m on Firefox Developer Edition and already have the new icon. However, it’s smaller than the other icons. It’s kinda in an uncanny valley territory because it’s close to the right size, but not quite. Really visually annoying and I’d strongly prefer the old one back or the size to be fixed. It’s smaller both in the dock and in the Command-Tab screen.
