Firefox Opens But There Is No Window

I just installed Win 11 with a fresh Firefox install (113.0 / 64-bit). I use a single video screen.

When I double-click on the FF icon, no Firefox browser window appears. However, in task manager, I can see that Firefox has opened and using a lot of memory.

I also put the FF icon in my "Pin to Taskbar" area. After I start FF, normally I would see the pinned icon highlighted (program open), but the taskbar FF icon does not show FF as active.

What have I destroyed this time?

Never mind....... Win 11 has a different way of opening new desktops. I was apparently in Desktop 2, and my FF instance went to Desktop 1. Not quite sure how that works, but that was the problem.
