Bug Description


 * The webapp icon appears twice.

[Test Case]

1. Get a fresh VM

2. Open firefox

3. Go to facebook.com

4. Accept integration prompt

5. log in to your facebook account

6. Look at the launcher. There will be a "FacebookMessenger" and a "facebook" launcher, both with the same icon. "facebook" will be the one that indicates it is active; trying to click on FacebookMessenger just activates "facebook".

[Regression Potential]

 * Zero, the stable release is already broken.

The package that fixes this for saucy is currently living in ppa:ubuntu-unity/daily-build. I confirmed in a fresh VM that it's working, so I hit the publish button, just waiting for somebody from SRU team to accept it into -proposed.

Hey Chris. I started up a fresh saucy VM just for this and confirmed that the package in saucy-proposed resolves the issue. The only trick is to restart unity (log out, log back in) after updating.
