Just this morning I noticed a new icon in the task bar. It's a blue icon with what looks like two stripes and stars in between the stripes. When I bring up the task manager I don't see any other apps running just Fire Fox.

I haven't installed anything recently and since it appeared sometime after I started Fire Fox, I also check my FF add-ons and don't see anything new in there. The icon does stay active when I close all other apps. I haven't opened anything up today except FF version 3.6.

The windows defender quick scan didn't detect anything.
Attaching an image of the icon.

Windows XP Pro
version 2002
Service Pack 3

thanks, cher

Can you post a screenshot of your whole taskbar, please?
