Screenshot showing where the "?" icon will be placed

Bug 156156 resulted in a new "?" toolbar button in the sidebar. Clicking it will redirect to the help page related to the active sidebar deck.

In the original patch, a "?" character was used as a placeholder for a future icon with the same size of the "X" close button right beside it.

So in this ticket I'd like to request such icon be created to improve the visual design of the sidebar.

See attached image to show where the "?" icon will be placed.

Confirmed that a new dedicated icon would be ideal, if not already available elsewhere.
Using keyboard navigation to highlight the cross and the question mark makes the mismatch in size more obvious.

Tested with:
