I found a different solution for this.

Tried all these steps including the chosen solution, FFX icon remained as the ONLY icon missing on a new laptop. Scanned Windows for any issues (Sfc, dism, no issues), rebuilt icon cache, disk cleanup, chkdsk, icon cache cleaners, nothing. Reinstalled Firefox, nothing.

Firefox icons loaded correctly everywhere except for the taskbar. It even showed correctly on the right click menu. I even tried assigning a different icon to the Firefox shortcut and it still showed as blank!

Then I found this article: https://www.minitool.com/news/windows-11-taskbar-icons-showing-blank.html which had different instructions for clearing the cache.

It turns out there is an additional icon cache at %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer, with many iconcache* files that needed to be deleted in order for the icons to come back! I had to use PowerToys File Locksmith tool to unlock the files as they were held by two different system processes (Explorer.exe being one of them).
