I can't reorder the favorite. When I move one, it finishes all the time in the first position. See picture

Impossible to reorder favorite

How can I reset/reinstall something to resolve this problem?

  • I've edited that in for you. I'm using X11 (not Wayland) and I notice that you have to be quick grabbing the icon in the dock and moving it in one quick sweep and it's persistent. Which are you using? Use the terminal command echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE to check (it may be significant).
