Google Messages QR Code Issue

I'm using the KDE Dragonized Gaming Edition.

When I load Google Messages in Firedragon, the QR code that's used to login is obscured. I can see the QR code for a brief instant while the page loads, but it's quickly replaced by lines or a lattice that completely obscures the QR code. Thus, I can't login to Google SMS on the desktop.

What can I do about this?
What other info should I provide to help diagnose this?

I don't know where to begin diagnosing the issue. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

Is there anything being blocked? Look to the left side of the address bar

Ah, thanks! CanvasBlocker and uBlock Origin were blocking elements on that page. I told them to unblock and refreshed the page, but the QR code is still obscured.

Edit: I closed and re-opened the page after unblocking, but no dice.

For the Google product use chromium

Because Google uses a lot of fingerprinting and we block it
