I noticed that yelp was also complaining about missing help-browser icon
until today when it started using native AppStream metadata instead of
letting appstream-generator create the basic metadata from its .desktop.
So maybe we could fix this bug sooner by creating that metadata file and
including it in the firefox and thunderbird binary packages.

Otherwise, I think this bug might be fixed when we get a newer version
of appstream-generator installed in the Ubuntu server that provides the
metadata downloads.

Bug description:
  Ubuntu's firefox and thunderbird ship their app icons in
  /usr/share/pixmaps/

  Please move them to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/*/apps/ instead so that
  these apps can be shown as available for install in GNOME Software.

  Original Report
  ---------------
  I am filing this against Thunderbird, even though it also concerns another 
package (GNOME Software).

  Essentially, using a freshly installed Ubuntu GNOME 17.04, Thunderbird
  is not available in GNOME Software (the default software app for this
  flavour). You cannot find it via search or the packages browser.

  The only way to install it is via apt-get and even then it doesn't
  show in Software (see attached picture).
