Can't pin icon to taskbar

Posted

I have re-downloaded and installed latest FireFox and I get an icon on desktop but I have been unable to pin it to the taskbar. Selected that option in the install, tried dragging it to the taskbar, tried to copy it to the taskbar, but still have no success.

When I right click and the menu pops up there is no option to pin. I am using Windows 7.

That is odd. Open the Window menu. In the search bar, enter Firefox. A list should come up. Right click Mozilla Firefox and select Pin To Taskbar.

Followed your instructions and selected Pin to Taskbar. Nothing happened. Restarted the computer and icon did not show up on taskbar. Went through the instructions again, but this time the option was UNPIN from taskbar. What's happening?? Everything works fine on the laptop, but not the desktop computer. Window 7 on both computers. Other suggestions?

The instructions I gave you should have worked.

Do you keep the computer updated?
