Big dummy at work again

Greetings gui panel experts;

After the first round of replacing iceweasel with firefox, since it 
pointed at the firefox-esr binary after that, I killed the iceweasel 
icon on the panel, only to discover that the firefox icon pointed at the 
even older version, so I have edited it several times and now have it 
launching firefox 47.0, but I saw synaptic dl and install 47.1, but I've 
NDI which of the numerous copy's of firefox in /usr/bin is now the 
correct one.  Anybody actually know which is correct after todays, 3rd 
round of updates from firefox-whatever to firefox-47.1?

And of course in the playing around I have now a text icon in place of 
the usual firefox icon, and apparently no way in fiddling with the 
properties of the icon, to correct that.

I know that text icon is linked to some version of firefox, and I'm not 
convinced I have the correct even now, see above version diff. All 
created by somebody deciding to repoint the iceweasel icon to the new 
firefox, its sure turned into a whats this nightmare here.

I could use a little help.


Cheers, Gene Heskett
