A curiosity about Debian & application panel "jump list"

Debian 12.6 rolls out

and watchin’ that news I rememeber why I don’t use Debian or Debian based distro on my 2 laptops (I only use arch distro like EndeavourOS, CachyOs and Garuda) and could be a stupid thing but I was not able to solve the issue on Debian so I don’t use it.
On KDE (that is my DE) on every Debian distro if I right-click on Firefox icon placed on the application panel it does not have “open in incognito mode” and other application placed on the panel have some entries missed when right-clicking.
This not happen on arch based distros or linux Mint (or LMDE that use cinnamon).
I don’t find a solution for that issue that could be stupid but get me far from trying debian anymore.
Is normal, debian KDE don’t have some entries available right-clicking the icon? Or there is a trick to solve?

One might think that people over at: https://forums.debian.net/ may be best suited to answer your question but there may be some EnOS’ forumers well-versed in things Debian who perhaps could assist you.


I suspect, though I’m not completely sure, that those options correspond to Desktop Actions in the .desktop file. Try comparing /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop between distros that behave differently, and if that seems relevant try copying one into ~/.local/share/applications/firefox.desktop on another, modifying exec paths as needed.

Debian’s running on two of my computers. Pretty sure the issue is with Plasma itself or how it was packaged. It’s easy to create a custom launcher in Cinnamon and XFCE.
