    Specific issue is with http://www.newsfirerss.com/.

    when willing to change the .app original icon to a new design, all's fine until the app is launched. once the unread rss feed count is up in hte dock, the icon changes back to the original version.

    would much appreciate any suggestions how to change the icon also when the app is open.

    Changing it in the Finder just changes the Finder/Dock association with the app. When the app updates it's badge the icon is sourced from the file within the app bundle. You will need to change that file. Note that if the app is a code-signed bundle doing that will break the code signing and it won't run anymore so take care.
