So this means that all the applications associated with NS6 also share the same icon? :(

It looks awful when you fire up the windows file manager and all the jpegs, gif's and html files all have the same icon if you choose to associate them, the fact that this icon is the same as the one used for the application's .exe is really bad.

When I use Mozilla across all the platforms I use I tend not to bother with desktop integration, but many people who use Netscape will just click yes when it asks to associate with all their filetypes and they're gonna have an ugly experience.

But I have to say, lack of app icons is my biggest complaint of this release, which means it's pretty good overall.
