bug reproduction

I expect that when I place the icons on the panel, the position is respected even when I open the application.

- Change the behavior of the task in icons only
- Add some applications on the panel (Pin to the application manager)
- Applications are now smelled: file manager, browser, etc ...
If I open the file manager, it doesn't have to change position, because doing so changes the position of the others, and if I open more applications quickly, I risk opening APPs that I don't want to open.

I attach a video to show the behavior:

Confirmed in KDE Neon with Plasma 5.21.1
This is disturbing as a user and useless. The position of the icon should not move.

Are you able to reproduce the issue in Plasma 5.24? I haven't experienced this or seen any bug reports about it in a while.
Comment 3 Emanuele 2022-04-25 19:48:37 UTC
I'm on plasma 5.24.4 and I can't reproduce it, then looks solved with the latest versions?
