I'm using Firefox (77.0.1) as my default and primary web browser on Windows 10 Version 1909 KB4497165.

Every time Firefox runs an automatic update, the pinned shortcut in my taskbar becomes a blank page icon. It is also unusable, saying the application has been moved or deleted. This has happened many times (with every update over the last few years). Clearing the icon cache does nothing to prevent this from happening in the future.

It is not difficult to restore the taskbar icon. The blank page icon must be deleted, and then I must navigate to the location of the Mozilla Firefox folder under Program Files (x86). There I can find the firefox.exe file and pin a new shortcut to the taskbar. Everything will then work fine until the next Firefox update.

Is there something about the update process that recreates the firefox.exe file making it break the pinned taskbar icon? Does anyone else share this repeated problem? I have no idea if there's a way to change the update process so it does not happen, but I appreciate any information.

Thank you.
