“The 1Password browser extension needed to restart” browser focus


Is it possible to disable this message tab taking the focus of my browser? This is generally disruptive and annoying but also a problem when I'm presenting to a client via a screen share app.

1Password Version: 8.10.27
Extension Version: 81027003
OS Version: Not Provided
Browser: Chrome

    Hello, @kriggity. Thank you for reaching out. I'm sorry to hear about the disruption.

    Based on what you shared, it sounds like 1Password in the browser is restarting due to the browser's local database rebuilding. -> If you see "The 1Password browser extension needed to restart".
