Why do you want to change it?
Is it showing the wrong icon?
Do you want an alternative icon?

I run firefox and firefox-esr separately (two different instanses and .desktop files), so for not to be confused on the panel I want different icons for them
I can change icons everywhere except windows on the panel. So firefox-esr needs an alternative icon

Ok, it is nice to have its own icon
But technically - is there any way to change this icon to another?

This changes all icons except windows on the panel
