The Firefox icon on my taskbar has a great big green number 1 plonked on it. It doesn't seem to relate to the number of windows I have open or the processes running. It's there even when Firefox is closed. I thought it might be messages but I can't find those either. Its driving me nuts can you please tell me how to get rid of it? I'm running it in Ubuntu on a laptop.

It's a notification, open the notifications list by clicking the time in the status bar (Super+V) and clear all notifications.
