the old firefox used to use main-window.ico in a path like browser\chrome\icons\default but i noticed this no longer works in the new firefox quantum.

how do i change the taskbar icon for the new firefox in windows 10?

Right click on the taskbar icon, then right click on "Firefox", then click Properties, then click "Change Icon..."
Do, or do not. There is no try.

It works for me.

C:\FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox\browser\chrome\icons\default\main-window.ico

I'm using the main-window.ico file in the grayrest icon pack as a test image.

(Just to note, for SeaMonkey the directory location is different, .../SeaMonkey/chrome/... rather then ...[Firefox]/browser/chrome/...)

(Wonder why the OS, 10, should make a difference?)
