Unity launcher icon now only launches TB, additional icon(s) open to control

Bug Description

The newest package(s) will only launch TB, a 2nd or even 3rd icon opens on the launcher that controls just that current open instance.

Seems related to the StartupWMClass= Thunderbird line in thunderbird.desktop. Have tried various other to no avail.
Removing the line completely returns launching & control back to the single pinned thunderbird.desktop icon
(may require a log out/in after editing .desktop to get expected behavior

  * New upstream release from the beta channel (THUNDERBIRD_14_0b2_BUILD1)

  * Switch back to GCC4.7 now that LP: #1003733 is fixed
    - update debian/config/branch.mk
    - update debian/control{,.in}
  * Don't set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in our shell wrapper, and install
    dependentlibs.list instead now
    - update debian/thunderbird.sh.in
    - update debian/thunderbird.install.in
  * Drop StartupWMClass from the desktop file now that WM_CLASS is the same
    as the binary name (also fixes LP: #1012158)
    - update debian/thunderbird.desktop.in
    - update debian/rules
