Hm, what is not working for you (compared to 7.5.6)? Could you give us a screenshot? I compared the stable and the alpha versions and am not sure what this bug report is about.

I don't think about:tor has ever had a favicon. Adding one should be easy to do, and would help about:tor tabs stand out more, etc.

Re gk: Exactly, this ticket is a proposal for adding one.

My thought process for that was that about:newtab on Firefox had favicons, so why not the Tor Browser. But of course antonela should have the final say on this.

I see this ticket related with #25702.

What do you want to do in the meantime? Should i provide the current Tor Browser icon in a favicon format?

comment:7 Changed 6 months ago by gk

I am fine solving this ticket when solving #25702 or just treating it as a unrelated low-prio issue.

antonela suggested we could just remove the Firefox favicon for now, and set the color of the "Tor Browser" text to violet (420C5D):

That seems OK, although I would argue that it would be better to have an icon there for consistency with Firefox (which some users may be familiar with).

BUT — the URL bar icon is not the subject of this ticket (and I think we have a ticket for the URL bar issue somewhere). This ticket is about the favicon which is displayed on the tab. Open about:support to see an example (and yes, about:support also has the wrong icon in the URL bar).

Good point.

Oops. I opened #28111 for the identity box issue.
