I initially thought it might be a bug with the CSS. But it seems to have been a deliberate choice. Looks like a glitch visually because of that I've removed it.

No, it's not a glitch. It's there to reinforce the function of the button which is to restart the router ie power off and then restart, as a response to feedback that suggested it might be mistaken for a refresh console button. If you miss the tooltip hint, you won't miss the visual indication of function!

I didn't find that to be the case at all. I found it confusing to have the Power and Restart symbols, I did not understand it to mean that it was for a "power off then restart". Having text on the buttons makes the most sense to me as that would be easily translatable, I don't think it is a good idea to assume that these symbols and their meanings would be easily understood everywhere.

As described in http://trac.i2p2.i2p/ticket/2272, we plan to reduce the available themes to one light and one dark - probably classic & midnight. I would propose removing the icons for text, as is used in the 'dark' theme.

Yeah, the changes last year removed the text, and we did have issues in testing with people thinking it was a refresh button. I was fine with the fix to add the power icon on hover, but it is a little bit odd, and there may be opportunity to improve further, or perhaps we should go back to text. Adding some UI team to the CC for discussion.

I agree with Slumlord. The stop/restart icons are confusing especially. We may have more feedback to either support this or not when our usability testing results are presented in the next few weeks.

As we are updating our iconography with .38 , these icons will be updated as well. Removing the shut down button from the restart button is preferred.

if we do not land updated icons for .39, I suggest that we remove the shutdown icon from the restart button.
