Windows 10: Pinned sites to Firefox jumplist

    Pinned sites to Firefox jumplist


    I have both internet explorer 11 and Firefox quantum pinned to my taskbar. I like using the jump lists by right clicking on them both. I have pinned websites on both jump lists. One thing that has been aggravating me slightly is with the latest Firefox the ‘frequent sites’ no longer show the website favicon/icon. They are now just generic Firefox icons. But I was happy enough that the pinned sites still continued to show the favicon. Until today when one of my pinned sites ‘twitter’ reverted to a generic Firefox icon. I tried reloading the page as this often works when internet explorer pinned sites revert to a generic IE icon. But that didn’t work, so I unpinned it, then re pinned it but no matter what the generic Firefox icon maintains itself. I no longer get the twitter favicon. I know it’s not major but I think it looks much better to have this than generic icons. I have other pinned sites on Firefox that still have the correct favicon such as YouTube but so far only the twitter has changed itself. Anyone else notice the same, even use jump lists/pinned sites and have any ideas?

    thanks

    In about:config, go to browser.taskbar.lists.tasks.enabled, disable it, check then re-enable it.
