How to do taskbar icon to open with same icon and not thread

i accidentally un-pinned(!) a taskbar icon from taskbar. Now if i pin the program again to taskbar the icon opens up in another icon. How can i make it open to same icon
Note that the program was first pinned to taskbar during installation of program.
The program is Mozilla Firefox
Thanx.

this is a simple one , open firefox from your taskbar, when the other firefox icon shows pin that one to the taskbar also, then unpin the first one, then drag the newly pinned ff icon to where you want it on the taskbar
