    W10 opens seperate tab for firefox when opening with main firefox icon


    lately I've been having an issue where Windows will open a separate tab for Firefox when i open it with the original pinned icon on my task bar.. I've tried opening firefox and unpinning the pinned shortcut and pinning the opened one and restarting firefox and it didn't solve my issue.. ( i saw this fix on google ) and it turned out not to work.

    I attached a screenshot of the problem, Thank You.

    Just uninstall Firefox and install it with the default settings ( basically let it create a desktop icon and such.. ) and it'll work just fine! changing where it installs is completely fine as well!
