MacOS Firefox keeps creating a new shortcut in the dock when it is quit

G'day folks,

Just wondering if anyone else is having this curious behavior after updating to FF v112.0 for iOS - every time I quit/ close the FF app, it spawns a new dock shortcut '(even though I already have a valid one from prior use there which works fine!)'.

Is this a bug/ issue that has been noticed/ logged by others as yet?

Thanks!

Hey, thanks for the response - was enabling this toggle, when FF received and applied a minor update; will never know now if this fix worked ;)

Bottom line - problem is solved (y)

Try to enter 'about:config' in the address bar and switch dom.quotaManager.backgroundTask.enabled to false.
