Help with opening pinned icons

If I have multiple Firefox browsers open that are not in full screen mode, once clicked on, that screen disappears before I can reach it with my pointer.
This happen with all pinned icons that are not in full screen mode or a small notification box.
Someone mentioned that Lenovo maybe had an update that messed with the settings.
Any thoughts?

Changing pinned icons??
I just noticed that it seems impossible to customize the icons of programs pinned to the taskbar/superbar. You can change the icon, and any other instances of it will appear properly, but the one pinned to the taskbar is the one contained in the EXE and nothing else. This is terrible, the...
