When frying potatoes with onions the onions get too done too quickly. Why?

Don’t know why I cannot perfect onions in fried potatoes

Because onions cook faster. They give up their moisture more readily than potatoes (especially if salted), and will burn once it's gone. In any mixed recipe, sequencing of ingredients is a large part of the art.
