Unable to pin private window to taskbar

Hello. When I open a private window and try to pin it to the taskbar, it instantly changes into the normal (non-private) Firefox icon and then only opens normal windows when I click on it. It's been like this since I reset Windows and reinstalled Firefox yesterday. I tried to reinstall it again but it still does this. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the reply. Apparently this was happening because I installed Firefox from the Microsoft Store. After I downloaded the .exe and reinstalled it, I'm able to pin a private window to the taskbar again.

Windows 11 seems to have changed taskbar pinning behavior recently (Bug 1879975):

Note that private-browsing can't be pinned and no other pins work unless done manually by the user right clicking on an icon in the taskbar and choosing to pin it.
