Do that appear on every access to Kibana? Is there a specific dashboard/visualization that's causing that?

Could you please also open your browsers dev tools (F12 or Cmd+Alt+I on Mac) and check if there are additional information (like a stacktrace), that you can provide for that error?

Hi Tim,
The issue happens on every login attempt, however, limited to two specific dashboards. Whenever we are trying to open one of the visualizations "Full Screen" ( vertical bar, pie charts, donut charts) Kibana crashes with the above message. Yet, we can open full screen similar visualizations on another dashboard with no problems. More so, even when we add one of the "crashing" visualizations to another dashboard, it expands normally.


from Console:
