Change bubble speech icon to tray icon
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Closer look:

Double digits for number of notifications:

Only Notices are present:

Only read Notices and Alerts:

I see an alignment problem for the "99+ notices" scenario:

@Etonkovidova, I heard some talk today about Nick's comment re. 99+ above. Before I close this, was that turned into a separate ticket?

@jmatazzoni - I filed it as a separate issue T142454: Notices tray icon with 99+ needs more space since it's a specific bug.
'99+' case (since it occupies three spaces) looks a little bit tight:
