Windows 10: Pinning a site to Mozilla jumplist

    Pinning a site to Mozilla jumplist

    Does anyone know how to pin a site to the Mozilla jumplist? I thought you dragged the website icon from the browser onto the pinned Mozilla residing on the taskbar. Maybe that method worked once (as I have an old one still pinned) but it doesn’t work. Same across multiple pcs so I guess that rules out a local issue.

    Scott dragging works for me using FF v57.0.1 with either win7 or win10.

    If I left-hold and drag either the info icon or the security lock to the pinned FF icon on my taskbar:

    When you drag either icon do you see it and a small rectangle following your mouse movement towards the pinned FF icon on the taskbar?

    Or, pin from the 'frequent' list, that way you retain the site favicon.

    Doh, I was doing it wrong. Trying to drag the favicon down to it. Doing it as per the screenshot worked. Yeah, I would do frequents but they have never worked for me. Don't show up. Ive messed about in config but it never seems to work.

    Thanks for your help guys!

    Glad to hear you have it sorted; Good tip Edwin!

    Scott, you might have a corrupt profile if that one way doesn't work. To create extra profiles in FF copy/paste/type firefox.exe -P into your run box. Create, rename, and leave that box unchecked to continue to test, when satisfied you can delete any remaining profiles and check the box.

    Use the Profile Manager to create and remove Firefox profiles

    Ok, thank you for that extra tip. I will give it a try later. I’m not too fussed about the frequents because it can look a bit messy but I was very keen to get the pinned sites working ok.
