In the new Tor Browser 4.0, the new Firefox chrome has changed the sizes and so on of the icons.

Our little green onion appears to have the bottom and top cut off of it, and also it's been shrunk.

What are some good fixes?

Search for Icon sizes in toolbars have changed on this page:

Torbutton includes a 16x16 pixel icon (tor-16.png) so I think we just need to revise our CSS so it gets used on the toolbar. And we should add CSS rules so that our 32x32 pixel icon (tor.png) is used in the Menu Panel and Customization areas.

Kathy Brade and I tried to create a patch for this (just some CSS changes, right?). What is really going on is that images like tor-enabled-16.png ( are being used in TB 4.0, but there are a couple of factors that make them look bad:

  1. On Linux, previously we used 24 x 24 pixel icons. With Firefox's Australis redesign, only the small icons are used (typically 16 x 16 pixels).
  1. Our small icons are not really 16x16 pixels, and in fact they are cropped so as to not cause problems. See #8941.

What we really need are some high-quality 16x16 pixel icons. Does anyone know who created the toolbar icons we use in Torbutton today? I could not find them on but maybe I missed them. We could just start over (extract the onion from, export as PNG, colorize, add the red 'X' to the -disabled icons, etc.)

Making this a duplicate of #25410 which should get resolved when we are doing our UI redesign.
