I noticed (it seemed just after an IE update) that the firefox icon had disappeared from my taskbar. I can't imagine MS would do something so obvious (at least w/o it being posted here in support, but I found nothing under "taskbar", so I'm creating a new topic), but ... can you tell me how to put the firefox icon (back) in my taskbar? Thanks!

Drag the Firefox icon from the Start menu to the task bar.

Thanks!

I had to drag it from the desktop (where it was) to the start menu first, but then it went to the taskbar easily. One more question? My taskbar only has room for 3 icons. When I try removing windows media player, it asks me if I'm sure I want to send it to the recycling bin (even though it looks like a shortcut), unlike the other icons I deleted (which told me deleting the shortcut wouldn't be sufficient to remove the program).

1) Will I lose windows media player by deleting its icon from the taskbar, and

(2) even if I don't lose it, will it just push firefox back out of sight next time IE updates?

Thanks!

If you right-click on the Taskbar, you can unlock it. Then you can create more space for icons.
