How do you keep an application in the dock in Ubuntu 22.04?

cn flag

When I open an application it appears in the lower part of the dock, but it disappears when I quit it and it would be useful if it could stay there.

MacOS and Windows have had this feature for years; does Ubuntu not? It certainly doesn't seem to -- only what's in there by default.

When I right click a running application there is no option to keep it there -- only all windows and quit.

You can select the waffle menu 'Show Applications' at the bottom corner of the dock, then right click on the application and select 'Add to Favourites'.

That does it; thank you :) Next problem: when I open an application that is in my dock favourites the lower part of the dock gets a second icon for it. Can it be made to have only one dock icon?

No, as far as I know, the second icon appears when the application is running. But for Firefox the dot left to icon appears. I don't know why.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
