Dock opens a new window for Google Chrome every time

Hello, I put the icon of Google Chrome in the dock. Unfortunately, every time I click it, it opens a new window instead of bringing the existing one into focus/restoring it. Is there some way I can change its behavior? Thank you for all answers!

I use Firefox, Chromium, and Vivaldi browsers and they all work fine for me, using our default dock (Plank). Please try and do the following.

  1. Remove Google Chrome from the dock.
  2. Relog your user just in case.
  3. Start Google Chrome from the Budgie menu. At this point, Google Chrome should appear on your dock.
  4. If that is the case, right click on Google Chrome on your dock, and tick the “keep in dock”
  5. Click on Google Chrome on your dock, the browser should default to minimize and maximize. only open another window when you right click on the icon and select “open a new window”

If the issue keeps happening, please try to do the same but with Firefox and let us know how that one behaves.

I hope this helps.
