Windows 7: Firefox 5.0 and Jump Lists

Firefox 5.0 and Jump Lists

I recently downloaded Firefox 5.0, and have tried the "jump list" feature of Windows 7 (i.e. -- Firefox icon pinned to taskbar, right click and open a "pinned" site)...but the links won't open. IE 9 works fine (no surprise there.) Is this a problem w/Windows, or something with Firefox?

Here's a screenshot of my Firefox 5.0 icon on my taskbar, right-clicked to show my "pinned" list -- but clicking on any of those items in the "pinned" list doesn't open FF 5.0, like works w/IE 9. Is that a Firefox bug, or something wrong w/my Windows install?

clearing jump lists
Hi, This may be a stupid question, but how do you clear the jump lists in Windows 7? Before, one would clear the "Recent" folder under Documents and Settings > USERNAME > RECENT Or the equivalent in Vista. How can this be accomplished in Windows 7?
