After the last update of the extension, it conflicts with Google Meet, it gives me the following message: The page is not redirected correctly An error occurred while connecting to meet.app.goo.gl. • The cause of this problem may be the deactivation or refusal of cookies I had to restart in safe mode (extensions disabled) then reactivate each extension one by one to find the culprit.
