I tried multiple workarounds (editing the .desktop file), but still the FF Developer Edition is showing a generic Wayland window icon.

When installing and using FF (including force-enabling Wayland) the branding works fine.

Comparing both PKGBUILDs it does seem the the firefox pkg does some additional branding stuff.

Additional info:
* 94.0b3 (ff dev)
* 93.0 (ff)
* Plasma 5.22 unstable

Steps to reproduce:
* Install both versions
* Enable Wayland for both
* Incorrect icon displaying for Firefox Developer Edition.
This task depends upon

This fixes the issues:

# Branding
ac_add_options --enable-official-branding
ac_add_options --with-branding=browser/branding/aurora
ac_add_options --enable-update-channel=aurora
ac_add_options --with-distribution-id=org.archlinux
ac_add_options --with-unsigned-addon-scopes=app,system
ac_add_options --allow-addon-sideload
export MOZ_APP_REMOTINGNAME=firefox-developer-edition

local i theme=aurora

// firefox-developer-edition.desktop
Exec=/usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/firefox --class="firefox-developer-edition" // append to all `Exec` lines

@andrewSC Hope you can include these fixes. :)

Can you let me know if 95.0b2 resolves the issue?

Unfortunately it doesn't, did you read the email I've send to you? :)

The desktop entry and classname need to match, otherwise it will not find the correct (icon) name.

Hi Francois, I've made the updates to the desktop entry for 95.0b3. Would you mind testing and letting me know?

Displays generic Wayland icon (KDE Plasma Wayland session). The only thing that fixed is renaming firefox-developer-edition.desktop to firefoxdeveloperedition.desktop
