Pinned Taskbar item open new icon instead of on top of pinned item?

I've got two laptops here. Both running Windows 7. On one when you pin an item to the taskbar and run that program it does not open another icon on the taskbar.

On this one it will open a new icon on the taskbar.

Why is this the case and how do I fix it please?

Pin the new instance of FireFox and unpin the old one,then drag the new one where you choose ,
The reason for it happening is because of the last update you made .
After you have unpinned the old one it won't open two instances again , until next update ,though it didn't happen to me with ff 10
