The new Firefox icon is now available… if you use the Nightly version

New Firefox icon in Nightly

In early June, Mozilla told us gave a news: Firefox it was no longer a browser. The name of what in Spanish would be translated as "the fire fox" became a trademark that encompassed Send (to send files), Monitor (to check if our credentials are in danger), Lockwise (password manager) and Browser (the browser of a lifetime). That day they also presented us with a logo that today we can see in a… semi-official way.

El new logo is now available, but not as we expect. The latest stable version of the browser is 68.0.1, with the most up-to-date beta being 69.0b12. In none of the above cases can we see the logo as it will be in the future. Yes we can see it in the Nightly version, currently 70.0a1 (2019-08-11), but there is a difference that is obvious and surely you have already guessed what it is.

Firefox Nightly already has the new logo ... but in blue

La Nightly version Fox's browser is, at least right now, two above the stable version. Mozilla doesn't even call it "Firefox" in some places, like in "Help," where it says "About Nightly." Is in Nightly where they test all the functions, and the ones they decide to add to the browser go to beta, where the browser already receives its real name. Today, after updating to the version that was released yesterday, I have seen that the icon was different and it already uses the new logo, but in the blue color that Nightly uses.

Now that we have seen the logo in a version of the browser, we have a question: will they use the change of ten (69–> 70) to add the new icon? At first, everything seems to indicate that it is, but Mozilla warns that the changes we see in Nightly may reach the stable version of Firefox ... or not. In any case, Nightly users can already enjoy the new logo in blue.
