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.
Ok, it's my mistake.."They" - because there are two - one in the upper left corner of the taskbar and another right.

Also i was wrong that they stand in the taskbar browser. They are located on the taskbar on the desktop. They are starter icons websites.

See this attachment, please..

I was wrong ... They left the tape on the desktop. But they are starter icons on websites.

in worse case senerio I think they use a xml config file, you could search through that then remove that text that tells them to be there. Just be sure you do not remove open and closing blocks for the other stuff .. make a back up file first before editing that one.

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.

I think I was wrong ... I guess these icons are not directly related to the browser and system settings come from ... But they are the starter of websites...

why don't you create a brand new bar, then putting only what you want on it, then delete that one?

you have to right-click, choose panel preferences and remove something (by clicking on the red minus '-' button)?
Looking at the screenshot in post #19 is that XFCE?
I thought Mint comes with Mate or Cinnamon only?

-::-Here's the cmd to find out what DE OP is running:
Code:
echo $DESKTOP_SESSION

yes of course, you're right. don't know why i got that mixed up.
however, i think i assessed the situation correctly and op simply has to translate this into "their panel".

but it seems they are keener on listening to userx-bw's ramblings...

If it was xfce4 that would give him a right click option to remove it, move it and other things. I too have suggested to just delete that entire bar then create a new one, or better yet create a new one first, then delete that one. move it to the top then it is taken care of. It can be done.

@ondoho

I am not installing cinnamon or MATE to go though the steps to tell him. let it be a learning experience for the OP.

OK I did install MATE and Cinnamon - I am in MATE right now . deleted my top bar, created a new one, added my main menu Notifaction area, and date back to it in a manner of maybe one minute. Next is cinnamon.

Looking at Cinnamon, it is defiantly MATE desktop, I highly recommend just deleting that top panle, then right clicking on the bottom one the selecting create new panel, then right clicking on that new panel, then select properties, select top, then right click on it again, then select or add items, then add them. done in under 3 minutes.

Thanks for taking the time to install Cinnamon and Mate; Bw-userx-
Now that we know OP is running Mate the guess work is over.

If this were my machine I'd just delete the top panel all together. (seriously)
