I noticed something strange with the Icecat icon used when used in a
desktop environment such as GNOME.  There are two icons at play, it

To test, you should be able to copy the icecat.desktop from the icecat
package to a ~/.local/share/applications directory, I think!  Perhaps
something like (untested):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/applications
cp $(find $(guix build icecat) -name icecat.desktop) \
chmod +w ~/.local/share/applications/icecat.desktop
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Then you should be able to make changes to the icecat.desktop file copy.
Don't forget to turn the "Exec" value to just 'icecat %u' to avoid
effectively pinning it to an old version.

Please let us know if you find the solution!
