As someone in #debian pointed out recently, the new Iceweasel icon strongly resembles a booger, especially at 
smaller sizes.  I mean, come on, honestly, that green looks like what you blow out of your nose when you have a 
sinus infection.  =)  Why was that icon chosen instead of something really pretty like this?

Really, there are a bunch of better choices at:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IceWeaselIcon

And I'm sure you guys know about that page already, so...why choose a booger?  =)

I think perhaps if you didn't pick your nose so much you wouldn't see
boogers everywhere. Closing.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
I'm sorry if my bug report was offensive; I didn't mean to insult the icon's 
author or those who selected it, I just think that there are much prettier 
alternatives.

Here is a script to replace all of the default Iceweasel icons in the Debian 
package, just in case anyone else would like to use it.

Subject: Iceweasel logo is too washed out and indistinct
Date: 01 Mar 2007 00:24:50 -0800
At the small sizes used in the workspace switcher and other places in
the window manager, the iceweasel logo is too unsaturated, washed out,
low constrast, indistinct, etc., to look like anything, which makes it
useless as an icon since it's not recognizable without staring
straight at it for a while.
