We are now preparing builds of a third release candidate of Firefox 3.5 which should be available shortly. RC3 is being created to fix a few important issues, but it will also include several small changes to the new Firefox icon.
New 16×16 Version (All Platforms, but primarily Linux and Windows)
Based on the feedback coming in to the previous post about the new Firefox icon, we’ve gone through several quick iterations on the 16×16 version. Here is the set of iterations which appear in chronological order from left to right. The icon now packaged in RC3 appears on the far right:
Dock Shadow Cropping (OS X)
We moved the position of the 128×128 icon on OS X down slightly so that the automatically generated shadow created by the dock is not as cropped off. This is technically an OS X bug, but the problem isn’t as obvious now (and we are in alignment with other OS X icons):
Higher DPI Shadow Effect for 512×512 (OS X)
This was something that we missed but someone in the community caught: the previous shadow on the highest resolution OS X icon wasn’t being rendered by Illustrator at a high enough DPI:
As always feedback is welcome in the comments below.
