The Firefox desktop icon disappeared.
The Firefox icon (along with a couple of others) on my desktop suddenly disappeared. Any ideas of how to get it/them back?
I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing issues with the Firefox desktop icon disappearing. Let's try a few troubleshooting steps to help you get it back.
Check the Recycle Bin: Sometimes icons can accidentally be deleted. Open the Recycle Bin on your desktop and see if the Firefox icon is there. If it is, right-click on it and select "Restore" to bring it back to the desktop.
Search for Firefox: Click on the Start menu and type "Firefox" in the search bar. If Firefox is installed on your computer, it should appear in the search results. Right-click on it and select "Open file location." This will open the folder where the Firefox executable is located. From there, you can right-click on the Firefox executable file and select "Send to" > "Desktop (create shortcut)" to create a new desktop icon.
Reinstall Firefox: If the above steps didn't work, you can try reinstalling Firefox. First, make sure to backup your bookmarks and any important data. Then, download the latest version of Firefox from the official Mozilla website and run the installer. During the installation process, you should have the option to create a desktop shortcut.
I hope one of these steps helps you restore the Firefox desktop icon. Let me know if you have any further questions or need additional assistance.
