Bug Description


since the update with version 69.0 from Firefox for Ubuntu, in the search bar, the Amazon icon doesn't appear. Instead of it, there is a grey magnifying glass.

I sent a report to Mozilla but they replied that the problem comes from Ubuntu, not Mozilla as their Firefox doesn't have any bug with it.

I inform you about this bug. I hope you will manage to fix it soon.

Best Regards.
