Google messages qr code greyed out

I am trying to use Messages for web with Firedragon 106.0.2 (64-bit). The QR code is always grey and will not display the code. I have done some whoogling, but have come up empty.

updated with same result

Have you tried disabling your extensions?
Then, if it works, re-enable them one by one, to see which is the blocking one.

all extensions are disabled

Did you reboot?
Timezone? :slight_smile:
Here is

Check if this helps:

Work fine here out of the box.

I am not sure what happened I had my phone scanning and kept refreshing the page... Eventually it went through. But the code on the page was stilled greyed out. Seems as though the QR code would flash for just a moment and then be greyed out.

I did update my system and am running the newest 106.0.3 (64-bit). I did not reboot, just restarted all of my firedragon instances. I don't really have a solution other than to keep trying and it may work for you eventually.

Why??? :thinking:

I have some other work going on at them moment and rebooting would cause me to loose some of the work that is in process.

It is the Canvas blocking that causes this (Firedragon enables this by default IIRIC), simply click on the icon that looks like a picture to the left of the URL bar and enable access to the Canvas.
