Unsafe Browser

Description

When using unsafe-browser, the icon displayed in the main window and task bar is the same as the Iceweasel icon. Having identical icons for Iceweasel/Torbrowser & Unsafe-Browser might be confusing for users. (It should be blatantly obvious by looking at the scary theme that they're not in the normal browser, but maybe another visual clue would be useful?)

A quick search on the internet shows that it might be as easy as dropping new icons in $INSTALLATION_DIRECTORY/browser/chrome/icons/default, but I have not tried this yet.

I think that if this can easily be done, unsafe-browser and the upcoming i2p-browser could benefit from it.
