Users have warned that updating to Chrome 96 may cause issues with Twitter and Instagram.

The latest Google Chrome update may cause problems with Twitter, Instagram, Discord, and other apps.

Following the release of the latest update on November 15, reports surfaced of Chrome users receiving error messages on popular social media sites.

As the Chrome 96 update was being rolled out this week, users reported a variety of issues.

“Something went horribly wrong.”

When trying to view new Twitter notifications, “try reloading” was a commonly reported error.

Users appeared to get the error when trying to load images and videos, including GIFs.

Pages were also loading and rendering in unusual colors, according to some reports.

These error reports follow Google’s announcement of Chrome 96 in a blog post that also stated that the update is aimed at fixing 25 security vulnerabilities discovered.

The Twitter issues were reported, and Craig Tumblison, a Google product manager, issued a statement.

He wrote, “We’re still seeing user reports about this behavior, including reports from our social team.”

“The behavior can be resolved by disabling the “chrome:flags(hashtag)cross-origin-embedder-policy-credentialless” flag, according to one user.

“The connection was rejected at https:cards-frame.twitter.com,” according to another report.

Tumblison then requested that his team enable this flag to see if the behavior appears.

In the bug post where the statement can be found, multiple error examples were listed.

Tumblison stated that the behavior had “returned to baseline” as of Thursday, November 18, and that new reports of error messages had continued to decline.

He also mentioned that only user reports related to Twitter behavior were tracked, so it’s unclear whether similar issues are still plaguing users of Instagram and Discord.

If you continue to receive an error message, copy and paste “chrome:flags(hashtag)cross-origin-embedder-policy-credentialless” into your Chrome browser and press enter.

When prompted, set the experimental flag to Disabled and then restart Chrome.

Disabling this embedder should largely resolve the issues, but if you continue to receive error messages, you can send a report using these instructions.
