#32118 new defect

New Identity button icon could be more legible

On upgrading to 9.0a8, I had trouble identifying what the new "New Identity" button was supposed to represent. I can't tell if it's supposed to be a broom with sparkles around it, or a rocket in flight against a starfield.

Relatedly, the "New Identity" button also seems lower resolution and blockier than the other icons in the toolbar. (I'm on macOS 10.12.6 on a new-ish MacBook Pro with a Retina screen, if that matters.)

Hi everyone,

I've attached some attempts at redesigning the 'New Identity' icon, which can help to kick start the discussion for this ticket.

I'm wondering about the confusion we might introduce by changing the icon now since the feature has been already introduced, and the benefits/risk fo changing it. What do you guys think?
