Duplicate (i.e.2) Firefox icons have appeared on my i-Mac toolbar. How do I remove one of these icons, please? Don't want to remove Firefox!! Have tried the "recommended" Apple method, i.e. dragging one of these icons and holding on to it ....then the duplicate icon should disappear. But it doesn't disappear ....the duplicate icon then just "jumps" back on to my tool bar at the bottom of the screen.

Have also tried holding the "command " key and then dragging the unwanted icon and holding on to it ...... but the same thing happens ......instead of disappearing, the icon just "jumps" back to my tool bar. Would be so grateful for any help and advice re the above. Thank you in anticipation of your kind help.

The only time I see two icons for a Mozilla application in the dock is when I have to restart after installing a new theme or extension. The extra icon disappears if I restart again. I have an extension that gives me a restart button to use. There is an addon for Firefox that can give you a restart button if you care to try that remedy. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/re-start/
