Since updating to latest Beta version of Firefox (67.0b3) yesterday, the icons on the task bar (Windows 10) show the spinning blue wheel and not the content of the tabs. This only happens on the Firefox icons and not those of other programs/apps. How can I fix this?

I have had to go back to release version to solve this problem.

Have you notified Beta support on this?

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

One issue that seems more common lately is Firefox's Tracking Protection feature. When it is blocking content in a page, a shield icon will appear at the left end of the address bar next to the padlock icon. This article has more info on managing this feature: Tracking Protection {web link}
