Windows 10 bug when removing a shortcut from the toolbar

I accidentally removed firefox from my toolbar, but it still is there, kinda invisible. If I reattatch it, there pops up a new firefox and the blank space is still there. It works like the firefox shortcut, just no icon. How can I remove it?


The Pinned taskbar icons (shortcuts) are stored in one of these folders:

%AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar
%ProgramData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

Open the above folders (paste the paths in Explorer Address bar) and delete the Firefox shortcut from there. Logoff and login back.

If that doesn't help, use the script here to reset the taskbar to default configuration. Note that you'll need to Pin them all again manually.
