• \[Solved\] Firefox not appearing in Gnome Shell


    I have just installed Firefox and, although it has installed successfully, I don’t see an icon for it in the Gnome shell.

    It works fine if I launch it from a terminal and if I create an entry for it using Alacarte, but why has pacman not added it to the Gnome menus?

  • Even restarting doesn’t show up in the app list?
    Pacman runs the command to update the icon cache, but you could try reinstalling it

  • It turns out that I had an additional .desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications.

    Uninstalling, deleting this file and reinstalling has fixed the issue.

  • Had the same issue with both Firefox and Thunderbird. i went into user/bin and launched from there. After I closed them they magically appeared in the menu where I quickly added them to the launcher.
