Taskbar icon changes, link stops working on Windows 10

I keep a link to Firefox on my Windows 10 taskbar for easy access.

Periodically, the link icon changes to the icon for a different app on my computer, and the link no longer works - Windows asks me if I want to remove the broken link when I click on it. I remove the link, go to the Start menu and pin the Firefox link to the taskbar again. Then at some point - as soon as a few minutes later or as long as a few days later, it happens again. Sometimes it happens while I am using Firefox, but I don't know if this is always the case because sometimes I just notice it when I go to open it for the first time in a session.

This has persisted over many Firefox upgrades, and is extremely frustrating. No other app on the computer exhibits this behavior.

Any thoughts?

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?
