I've got 3 instances of the .desktop file
My local version looks like this -
<snip>other language versions of "Name=" </snip>
Comment=Browse the World Wide Web
<snip>other language versions of "Comment=" </snip>
<snip>other language versions of "GenericName=" </snip>
X-GNOME-FullName=Iceweasel Web Browser
<snip>other language versions of "X-GNOME-FullName=" </snip>
Other than the titles (which I'm assuming is in the snip section of your
post), the only difference I saw is that iceweasel is started with '%u'
where yours does not.
Also, is that a .local form of the desktop file or is it being stored
somewhere else (if the local and installed versions are different, the
local file takes precedence afaik).
