    I have always had shortcuts pinned to my Firefox icon in my taskbar like windows 10 forum,the login for my work place, you tube,ETC.but the short cuts are gone on my windows 32 they are still on my win.64 ..When I drag a short to my win.32 Firefox Icon in taskbar it says pen to Firefox but it don't pin to it. I miss having the shorts there is there any other way to pin them to my Firefox Icon in the taskbar.Thanks.

    I don't run 32 bit but how about trying:
    1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    2. Right click on "firefox.exe" -> Pin to taskbar

    Thanks Topgun But I already have the Firefox shortcut In my taskbar but I had some other shortcuts pinned to the Firefox shortcut and you can right click on the FF icon and the other shortcuts pop up and you click the one you want such as Win.10 forum and go there and now the short cuts are gone from the FF icon and I can't get them back again. I still have them on my 64 bit pc. I was hoping someone would know how to get them back
