Bug Description

Login as guest in 12.10
Click the Amazon icon in the launcher
Observe a new Amazon icon appears and the browser launches
What should happen is the browser should launch and re-use the existing icon in the launcher

You can lock the new one to the launcher just fine and re-use it, but the first original icon becomes redundant, not working as it should.
