The only thing I use Chrome for at work is for weekly department Jitsi Meets, because Firefox won't display the mouse pointer when I share my screen. I close that blasted thing as soon as the meeting ends.

Maybe I should give Firefox another shot, it would be great if the bug was fixed. I use FF for everything else.
