That way, when I start it from the pinned icon, it sets itself as default correctly, instead of asking over and over if I do a hard/symlink to the "firefox.exe" file. -- otherwise It would just tell me that the shortcut to the file did not exist and delete the pin. (So yes, I did a fair amount of troubleshooting for this silly issue)
Because of the firefox -> waterfox name change I ran into similar issues like:
as well as that previous XULRunner error someone else posted a while back when I did an upgrade instead of uninstalling the app and deleting the entire folder.
There's something that's seriously annoying me related to this...

From LEFT to RIGHT
shortcut1 = waterfox start menu created by installer.. notice "Launch Waterfox"
before PROCEEDING further, take a look at the taskbar, notice that there are two pinned waterfox shortcuts. the first is shortcut2 and the second is shortcut3. because clicking shortcut2 for some reason creates a new taskbar icon, i went ahead to pin the newly created one to figure out whats going on. so shortcut3 is the manually newly pinned shortcut.
shortcut2 = my vbs script that pinned waterfox... notice "Launch Waterfox" (HAS ALWAYS BEEN WORKING PRIOR TO v14)
shortcut3 = pinned shortcut from the additional icon created by shortcut2. notice.... no more "launch waterfox"
shortcut4 = ms words well, just testing... was looking for a pattern
shortcut5= %appdata%\microsoft\internet explorer\quick launch
So, can someone tell me where the fault is? I need this scripted properly. I setup everything using a script .... right now, i need to manually click on all these.........
MrAlex can we see a quick fix for these issues please...
