I cannot unpin Firefox from the taskbar

How do I uninstall the Firefox icon from the taskbar? The standard article on the Firefox Support website is `How to pin and unpin Firefox from the taskbar on Windows 10 and Windows 11', but it seems to be out of date. It says to right-click on the icon and click on `Unpin from taskbar', but there is no such item in the right-click menu any more.

I know that it became difficult to unpin the Firefox icon about a year ago. I got a new PC recently and installed Firefox, but I could not remove the icon. Then realised that I should have done this during installation, by using 'Custom installation' and unticking the 'Icon on taskbar' option. I searched the web for clues and found none, so I uninstalled and reinstalled, which was a nuisance.

Some months later, I have just installed the new version 110.0.1, but I forgot to use 'Custom install', with the result that the icon is back on the taskbar. Again I have searched the web, and again no success. I tried reinstalling V110.0.1 on top, using 'custom install' this time --- I could switch off the 'Icon on taskbar', but the icon is still there.

I don't want to uninstall-reinstall this time because I have now configured Firefox as I want it, so that would waste a lot of time --- and I will probably forget again sometime in the future.

I am sure that Firefox has not done this deliberately, because they are always so much on the user's side.

QUESTION: How do I unpin the Firefox icon from the taskbar without uninstalling? I have an idea that there is a registry hack that will achieve this.

Dear community,

This morning, after a reboot of my Laptop during the night, I opened Firefox with the frustrating surprise that I lost all my bookmarks and all my history (websites and downloads). The saved passwords looks fine.

How could that have happen? Need your help to get those back... specifically my bookmarks!

Note: I went trough several support articles of Firefox but none helped. I tried to restore my bookmarks but got the message "Unable to process the backup file.".

Any thanks.

Hello, I'm having an issue with my overflow menu. When opening the customization screen for the toolbar, I can't seem to drag certain toolbar elements into it? The buttons on the customize screen itself work correctly, and some of the elements present on the toolbar will change between visible and overflow just fine, but others I am completely blocked from moving. Please assist, as this is seriously impacting workflow.

Expected: Firefox displaying all known Unicode characters.

Result: Many characters missing.

Failure page as an example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_and_political_symbols_in_Unicode

Description: I tried going through a Unicode list Unicode list and the extensive set of characters displayed correctly. However, when reaching further into character sets as shown in the failure page page, many are missing which are not new.

  • "Repair encoding. . ." button was not active.
  • An encoding switch extension was not able to resolve the issue.
  • Troubleshooting mode did not show changes.
  • Switched fronts available such as Noto Sans and Roboto Sans without success. Possibly a font failure?

Everything that has an active state seems to have suddenly gained huge thick borders, usually grey or black. This applies to UI and page elements. I have no idea what happened, I'm guessing an update changed 'something', but how do I nondestructively fix it?

All webpages seem affected.

(reddish bars in second screenshot are my removing some URLs, but everything else is my UI as seen)

Thanks greatly for any insights...

Hi,

im getting unknown issuer on my thin-clients with a FF ESR 45.9.0. This FF is tied to the OS (Ubuntu 16.04) and the OS is the most recent compatible version for our version of the thin-clients. So yeah its super old and I'm not able to update any of this. There is no security.enterprise_roots.enabled option available. What would be the best way to solve this issue for ~400 clients. Thanks in Advance Regards Tekkion

Hi, I have noticed that when using the latest release of Mozilla Firefox on Windows 10 and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, when I go to ABCnews.go.com and click into a story, there is an autostarting video. But instead of either waiting until I click on it or autostarting normally, it flashes wildly. I have disabled all extensions and the problem persists. Has anyone else encountered this? And more importantly, does anyone have a fix for this issue?

Prior to today, occasionally I would need to restore from a Time Machine backup the files "places.sqlite", "places.sqlite-shm", and "places.sqlite-wal" into my default profile, because I would lose my bookmarks & history.

However, beginning this morning, that procedure did not work. Every time I open up Firefox, the "places.sqlite" file would corrupt immediately and no attempt at restoring (from any backup date/time) would fix the issue.

I am running Mac OS 11.7.2 (Big Sur) and Firefox 111.0.

This is VERY frustrating, because I rely heavily on my bookmarks and passwords.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Hi

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

I am trying to block out the new little "stick marks" that post while I try to log on to a site that that I need to "google" and log on to. I tried to sign out of all the "outside sites" that want to log on, but there are sites that I need to log on to and have done this in the past. I usually go to these sites because they are important to my transacting business, accessing my bank, places I pay my bills, etc. If I want to get to these and order or pay a bill, I have to unblock each one of them??? How do I do that? If a credit company wants to contact me, they cannot do this even if we have contacted each other previously? Really?

How do I undo this already-marked system and get out of it? As you can guess, I am old and not up with the times. Please simplify your answers so a not-technical person can understand it.

When I'm on a webpage and drag the URL onto the Bookmark Toolbar it's showing up as an URL instead of the page name like it used to.

For example: If I was on this page: https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/35895322/sources-cowboys-trade-texans-wr-brandin-cooks

Before the last update if I dragged that URL to the Bookmark Toolbar it would say: "Cowboys trade for Texans WR Brandin Cooks"

After the update it just shows the URL.

This makes it VERY hard to remember what each bookmark is.

Can anyone help me to bring this back to using the page name instead of the URL on this Toolbar?
