08/13/22 = Missing Firefox icon on taskbar

I haven't used this laptop (Win10) in a few days, but FFox just updated to 103.0.2 and the icon in the taskbar is no longer there. It's a "blank page" looking thing. Wow. After years of having FFox in my taskbar, I'm surprised by how disorienting this is. LOL.

I unpinned from the taskbar, and the icon appeared for a half second before it went away. Re-pinned, and the blank page icon is back. Creating a shortcut for the desktop works just fine, but I'm used to the taskbar.

Obviously, I can deal with this, but I thought y'all should know that this broke in the last update. At least, for me, it did.

Thanks,

Hi xyz10, See if this helps -

Close Firefox Open a Windows File Explorer In the address bar enter

shell:User Pinned\Taskbar

and press Enter (or click the right arrow) Look for Firefox and delete it.

Restart your computer. Go to Start menu -> right-click on Firefox -> More -> select Pin to taskbar.
