Bug Description

If I have different Firefox builds (for example Aurora and a custom Nightly build) and I run both of them, Unity shows only a single icon in the launcher (and all the windows of the two builds are linked to that icon).
This is really confusing and makes working on Firefox really difficult.

affects: ubuntu → unity

Affects BAMF. Technically, this may be hard to fix

Is this valid? In any case it's up to firefox packagers to provide .desktop files that have different StartupWMClass values for different window classes, or there's no other way to check which version is currently used.

Changed in unity:
status: New → Won't Fix
Changed in bamf:
status: New → Invalid
