 Kathy Brade and I tried to create a patch for this (just some CSS changes,
 right?).  What is really going on is that images like tor-enabled-16.png
 /tor-enabled-16.png)]]) are being used in TB 4.0, but there are a couple
 of factors that make them look bad:

 1. On Linux, previously we used 24 x 24 pixel icons.  With Firefox's
 Australis redesign, only the small icons are used (typically 16 x 16

 2. Our small icons are not really 16x16 pixels, and in fact they are
 cropped so as to not cause problems.  See #8941.

 What we really need are some high-quality 16x16 pixel icons.  Does anyone
 know who created the toolbar icons we use in Torbutton today?  I could not
 find them on https://media.torproject.org/ but maybe I missed them.  We
 could just start over (extract the onion from
 export as PNG, colorize, add the red 'X' to the -disabled icons, etc.)
