Using Windows 7 and Firefox 3.6: I have Firefox pinned to my taskbar, and would like to have some specific sites pinned to the icon's jump list. Is this possible, if so how do I do this?

From what I've read, the developers of a program have to implement jumplist features beyond the basics of opening the program and closing it. You might notice that Internet Explorer has the ability you're talking about.

I guess the team at Mozilla hasn't gotten around to that yet.

In the meantime, you can use Jumplist Extender to add your own things to a jumplist.

The thing about Jumplist Extender: does it run in the tray/background or is it a one time tweaker thing or what? – studiohack Aug 20 '10 at 3:48
Woah, dude, that is WICKED COOL!!! It actually lets you get a jumplist on the CMD window; WOOHOO!!! :) @studiohack; it seems to be a one-time thing. I just made a jumplist for CMD.EXE and then exited the program, and my jumplist still works. – eidylon Aug 20 '10 at 3:53
SWEET!!!! will give it a try! – studiohack Aug 20 '10 at 4:23
It works awesome!! I even got the site icons and added them, it looks so neat! – studiohack Aug 21 '10 at 4:03

The only way I have found is to write an html file with contents like the following:

<title>Your Page Title</title>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url="></HEAD>

Change to whatever site you want, and name it something like google.html then File->Open->Said file. Now it will be in the jump list as recent, which you can then pin.

A crappy work around but it works.
