Two Installs of Firefox

A week or two ago I was surprised when opening Firefox it asked if I wanted it to be my default browser as it already was default. I said okay and it opened but none of my saved passwords available nor were my bookmarks. I noticed that there were TWO Firefox icons on the quick start bar on my 2 month old Windows 11 laptop. I clicked the other icon, that opened and my bookmarks & passwords were there. I clicked Help -> About Firefox and both are the same version. I looked at Windows Apps and there's only one Firefox showing there. I don't know how to remove the second instance. I attached a screen shot showing two icons on the quick start bar, newly installed Firefox behind original installed version asking to become default browser.
