Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: mozilla-thunderbird

I have installed Thunderbird on a Gutsy system and have then placed a
Firefox shortcut and a Thunderbird shortcut on the desktop (using
Applications -> Internet -> rightclick on Thunderbird -> Add Starter to
Desktop). The shortcuts work nicely, but the TB icon is noticably bigger
than the FF icon.

The .desktop files specify thunderbird.png and firefox.png,
respectively, as icons. For each of these files names, there exists just
one file on the system (/usr/share/pixmaps/thunderbird.png and
/usr/share/pixmaps/firefox.png), and they have different dimensions:

$ file -L /usr/share/pixmaps/thunderbird.png
/usr/share/pixmaps/thunderbird.png: PNG image data, 64 x 64, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced

$ file -L /usr/share/pixmaps/firefox.png
/usr/share/pixmaps/firefox.png: PNG image data, 48 x 48, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced

Not sure which one is the "correct" size; but I would appreciate if both
icons would have the same size. Currently the first thing the user of
this machine (which will not be me) will see are these two differently-
sized icons, and it looks just wrong :-)
