I have two computers, one running firefox and the other IE 11, On firefox my Desk top icons will not stay in place the taskbar icons must be repinned rvery boot

Posted

every time I boot up all my desktop icons are grouped on the right side of the screen and my task bar icons are missing and must be re-pinned on every boot. This is a new phenomenon on my Firefox PC.

I have another computer that uses IE 11 and these problems are not present.

Both machines run Win 7 Pro and have all of the Microsoft updates to date.

Any help will be appreciated!

This is a Windows 7 Problem/issue as you have described it. I suggest heading to a windows forum like seven and figure it out there. You can check your Taskbar settings by right clicking it as that sounds like where the some of the issue maybe from. Lock the Taskbar after.
