Power Apps Edit Goes Nowhere

I have a Power Apps visual in my report. Then I click the ellipsis and select 'Edit' it shows me the dialog with the URL and I click OK. Then it opens in Chrome and goes through several stages of loading before leaving me on the page show in the image.

 

It says I need to save the Power App to finalise the connection but it won't ever take me into the actual app!!!

I found a workaround - closing down the browser and signing out of the O365 account, then reopening and signing in, then edting the app from Power Bi.

 

Makes me think there is some 'session' or cookie or something which prevents Power BI overriding an existing session in Power Apps, which isn't present on a fresh browser session. I should also add, due to group policy Chrome on my machine doesn't have cookies enabled.

@FAY2020 I have requested that this topic be syndicated to the PowerApps community as well - I think that means all replies will post in both communities and you'll get the PowerApps pros to help out too.

In the meantime, see if you can find the app you want to edit by typing:
https://make.powerapps.com/
into your browser URL. I find that I am often taken to the screen you have pasted in the screenshot when working in PowerApps but haven't found a good use for that screen yet, nor any way to navigate back to the app from there without starting fresh with the URL I posted above.

Hopefully the PowerApps community can give us some insight to make life easier on this screen, but in the meantime please let me know if the make.powerapps.com workaround helps.

Please @mention me in your reply if you want a response.
