tabs and bookmarks are grouped together on the taskbar. is there a way I can separate them? that was an option with older versions of Firefox.

Okay. Your second picture is the Windows Task Bar. Not under the browser's control.

I think what you are trying to tell me is you want a separate icon on the taskbar for each Firefox window that is open.

Right-click in the taskbar. Select Taskbar Setings. Look for Combine Taskbar buttons.

on the task bar, right now the bookmarks and the browser are together. Firefox used to have the bookmarks window on the taskbar beside the browser webpages/tabs. now when I click on Firefox, I have to pick to go to the tabs or the bookmarks, it was just easier before when they were separate and beside.

I'm sorry. I still don't understand. This is what my browser looks like. Is your different?

the first picture is what my tabs look like at top. no problem there.

the second picture is the taskbar on the bottom with Firefox browser and bookmarks both open. it used to be Firefox had the browser and bookmarks with separate icons. there would the browser icon beside the bookmarks icon. now they are grouped together. it was easier before, I could click either the browser icon or the bookmarks icon.
