Oh. I might be confusing it with something else then. Maybe Zim.

That user is me! I just converted to Konqueror from Dolphin but the
changing icon means that I can never find Konqueror on the taskbar. My
taskbar shows only icons, no text.

I am referring to the taskbar icon. I do not recall having ever seen
an icon in the titlebar.

Thanks. Launching Konqueror as konqueror --icon someIcon.png has no
effect, but in Okular the effect is to show a blank taskbar icon
instead of Okular's regular icon. It still does not show the
designated icon. I'll play around a bit, maybe it doesn't like pngs.

Thanks. I'll look around for similar taskbar options.
