Dev Tools Web Scraper Tab not showing on a specific site

Web Scraper version: 0.4.2
Chrome version: Version 83.0.4103.97
OS: Windows 10

I'm having an issue where the web scraper tab won't appear when I'm specifically on a youtube site but it appears on all other sites. I'm not logged in a google account.

I'm getting these console logs as well.. That don't appear on other sites.


I updated chrome, removed and downloaded the the extension before. no progress.

We are aware of this problem. It is affecting all browser extensions. In short this is a bug in chrome not a bug on our side.

Right now we need a list of sites where this bug is occurring. We have narrowed it down to Youtube executing a javascript file that causes extension tabs not to load. Unfortunately the file is really big and minified so we cannot make sense of it.

Please report other sites where this is occuring so that we can report a bug to Chrome dev team.

As a workaround you can load the devtools first and then open Youtube.
