How to remove taskbar browser icons?


Hello,
Taskbar browser icons appear related to any sites. I tried to remove them through the right click menu, but it does not work.

How can I remove them?

I use Linux Mint, version Maya. The browser is Mozilla.

See the mouse pointer on the screenshot in the upper left corner.

Hello and welcome to the forum

First, please read the information here. The more information we have, the better we can help you.

What distribution and version of Linux are you using and what browser are you speaking of? Also, please post a screenshot of your desktop or the items you are referring to by using the "Attach Files" feature under "Additional Options" (below the text window of your "Reply to Thread.")

Regards...

If your using XFCE right click on the icon and 'remove from panel'.

-::-Like ardvark71 said; give details on what distribution and DE you are running.-::-

When I was running Mint 17.3 I had the same thing going on.
The task bar browser icons also appear in the same place on Voyager 16.04 (Ubuntu 16.04)
I think it's the way that it is because the Mozilla Team designed it that way.

Look around in the FF browser settings (maybe advanced) and see if you can remove the icons that way.

First, I'd recommend not continuously editing your first post. It gets confusing when someone jumps in and sees everyone asking you for information that seemed to be there the whole time. Try to include new information in new posts.

Based on your screenshot, I'm guessing you want to remove the launcher from your taskbar - the one that when you click on it, it opens your browser? If you right-click on it, you'll probably see a "remove" option. You may need to look for it, it may be nested in another menu after you right-click. Alternatively, you may have to put the taskbar into an edit mode of sorts first.

If you don't see anything like this when you right-click the icon, please provide the full list of options you do have (in English please).

Ok, I did. The mouse pointer is pointing to an icon on the Gnome taskbar (Looks like Gnome 3, am I right?)

What is "they"? And where do "they" appear in the browser window? The way you're wording it, it sounds like there are browser icons(Launchers?) inside of the browser itself.

ivo2000, it looks like you have two taskbars with too much stuff in them, some duplicates.
you have to right-click, choose panel preferences and remove something (by clicking on the red minus '-' button)?
