Picture 1

Whenever I want to start FF, I click the icon, and the icon itself expands and opens the window. In the following picture, you can see that the icon turns into a window.

Picture 3

It is extremely annoying because the original FF icon is still there, which takes up precious space on my toolbar. Does anyone know of a solution for this problem?
