I've always been able to fix any issues I've had with Google Chrome's icon by setting a StartupWMClass as described here, however as of today the icon broke completely, and StartupWMClass didn't solve it. It shows up as this now:

enter image description here

I ran xprop | grep WM_CLASS and the result, as expected, was Google-chrome-stable.

I've attempted purging google-chrome-stable and removing ~/.config/google-chrome/ but to no success.

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: A reboot seemed to fix the issue, however I'll leave this question open if anyone has any idea what could've caused it, or how to fix it without having to reboot. This is Linux, not Windows.
