The firefox icon vanished for no reason. Had to open Firefox from computer list of programs. How to get it back without reloading entire program?

Restart computer to reestablish icon? If so, why did it vanish in the first place? Security or safety of using computers is called into question every time these unexplained occurrences take place. Thank you for your reply.

Hi, if you mean the Desktop shortcut (icon), you can drag it from the programs in the Start Menu - doing that will not remove it from the list.

If you mean the Taskbar icon; start Firefox then right click the icon on the Taskbar > Pin to Taskbar.

No real idea why it disappeared, but glitches do occur sometimes - it could have happened during an update of Firefox or Windows.
