Some applications provide shortcuts (long-press on the app-icon). These icons sometimes do not have the right icon. It's gray or it's the default Android icon.
Can this be fixed? I don't want to use another 3rd party launcher.
When you say some applications - do hyou specifically mean Firefox?
What happens when you place "Open new tab" or "open new incognito tab" from the firefox longpress-icon-menu and place that on the homescreen?
For me it looks like this (I couldnt get bookmarks or websites to show up in that list);
Firefox version: 89.1.1
This happens with two apps:
It happens after a while. So, at first it looks okay, but after a day or so it messes up
Both apps look fine here for now.
Stocard shows the icon correctly for a card placed on the desktop when I tried.
I will leave them for a while and see if I can reproduce this. Thanks!
If you use another launcher - does the problem go away permanently?
Using Nova Launcher for a while. The app "StoCard" has no issues anymore. Icon is fine. We could address that one to Asus Launcher.
The banking app (ING Bank, The Netherlands) is still faulty in Nova, so that could be addressed to the app.
Sidenote is that I like Nova Launcher so much, that I will keep on using it 😃
