Since this update (to v88.0.4324.96 64-bit), the Google homepage doodle, search field and Most Visited tiles are suddenly not appearing on launch or in new tabs. Anyone else seeing this? In my case these are Ubuntu-based snap auto-updates (Chromium snap ver 1461 in this instance). Is the solution to revert to last previous snap (ver 1444) from Jan 8?
Chrome proper (same version number but not a snap to my knowledge) also updated a couple of days ago and seems not to have this glitch. It did briefly but seems to have recovered.
