Plugins download but won't install


OS: Manjaro latest stable
Jetbrains Toolbox installed via AUR (Arch User Repository)
WebStorm latest stable (2021.3.2) installed via Toolbox.

What I have noticed is that the plugin is downloaded to `/home/user/.cache/JetBrains/WebStorm2021.3/plugins/`
but is not copied to `/home/user/.local/share/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps/WebStorm/ch-0/213.6777.57.plugins/` (if that even is the correct location to install plugins to).

Manually copying/pasting the contents did not "install" the plugins.
Not sure where the plugins are supposed to go, but nothing seems to happen after they are downloaded; the IDE doesn't recognize them as installed (the "Install" button persists).

Anyone know how to go about fixing this?

I changed the plugins dir from `/home/user/.local/share/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps/WebStorm/ch-0/X.Y.Z.plugins`
to `/home/user/.local/share/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps/WebStorm/ch-0/X.Y.Z/plugins`
via `/home/user/.local/share/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps/WebStorm/ch-0/X.Y.Z.vmoptions`
because `/plugins` already had some plugins (I assume core plugins).

Then I installed Material Theme UI Lite again (and again, did not work).
Then I installed Atom Icons; this plugin required to Restart IDE, so I did so via the plugin's Restart IDE button.
Only after doing this did Material Theme UI Lite and Atom Icons install to the `/plugins` directory.
