    Got an answer from Support:

    Support wrote:

    "These XML nodes are the small icons that you see in the KDT editor on the left side of the top-level object nodes. Not all KDT nodes have icons in this format. I believe that icons in this format are created only for top-level windows. 

    I do not think that there is any way to disable them. At least not in the GUI."


    so these are just the small icons for chrome or firefox browser and not something that can break my test. so I can ignore them from now on.


    but I have to say: the solution to store these icons in the XML file is a bit ... weird. with this huge encrypted (?) data segment. this could be implemented in a better way just like something like this:

        <Bitmap Name="Aliases.Browser" Data="chrome_icon">

     but this is just my opinion.


    wish you all the best and thanks for contributing.
