    Hallo, since the last update of Firefox for Android to version 63.0.2 I have a dark symbol frame around the Firefox icon, as you can see on the attached file, instead of the light one, like on the other app icons. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S7 with Android 8.0.0. What is the reason that for and how it can be fixed? Thanks a lot in advance...

    It may have something to do with your dark background. Mine's on a white background and it's light. Then again, different icon sets (Samsung vs. Google) look different, and different versions of an app may modify the icon.

    No, it is not because of the dark background. And this is like that, as I said, just since the last update of Firefox. Before, there was simply the "round" Firefox symbol. AND, on the Huawei P10 of my girlfriend, the icon frames are round there and no additional icon pack is installed as well, it is looking exactly the same. Therefore I guess it is connected to the Firefox itself.

    Yes. My icon has changed as well.
    I assumed it was intentional. I don't like it though.

    Yes it is because of your background sometimes devices changes the Icon look depending on the Background or based on theme which you have applied.

    Not in this case.

    So, as far as I understood, some of you observed the same, some didn't, but nobody have an idea, what's the reason and how to solve, correct?

    I never found an official statement on it from Mozilla, but it is undoubtedly an intentional change.
    Depending on what launcher you use, you can "solve" by downloading your own copy of the logo and having it use that.
