Why are there two different Firefox icons? The version is 57 I guess.

    Pull the notification bar down to see why. Maybe it's a notification

Single app can use different small-icons or status-bar-icons for different notifications.

In your case there are two notifications from Firefox for which the icons are different.

Like this Actual notifications from Firefox

They are set programmatically like setSmallIcon(R.drawable.icon_name) for every notification.

  • What are the differences between small-icons and status-bar-icons?

  • they are same, programmatically smallIcon is used. status-bar-icon is common term. Jan 17, 2018 at 11:21
  • ah, you should put the plural s outside the markdown. Anyway, I wonder why they need to use different icons...
