I haven't used this laptop (Win10) in a few days, but FFox just updated to 103.0.2 and the icon in the taskbar is no longer there. It's a "blank page" looking thing. Wow. After years of having FFox in my taskbar, I'm surprised by how disorienting this is. LOL.

I unpinned from the taskbar, and the icon appeared for a half second before it went away. Re-pinned, and the blank page icon is back. Creating a shortcut for the desktop works just fine, but I'm used to the taskbar.

Obviously, I can deal with this, but I thought y'all should know that this broke in the last update. At least, for me, it did.

Thanks,
