Unable to open browser app after Desktop 1.4.3 upgrade

After upgrading to Neo4j Desktop 1.4.3 I am no longer able to open the browser for any db:

I can see and open other graph apps, but the browser is unavailable:

Browser version is 4.2.4

Hi @terryfranklin82 ,

There was also a recent update to Neo4j Browser 4.2.5. It's possible that the two updates didn't occur together smoothly. If you restart Desktop do you get prompted for an update to Neo4j Browser?

A bit more invasive would be opening the directory where Neo4j Browser is installed and removing it. Neo4j Desktop should re-install a fresh Browser at the next start.

The steps would be:

  1. Open the "Graph Apps" sidebar
  2. Click the triangle to show details about Neo4j Browser
  3. Click the link for "location" -- this should open up the directory where Neo4j Browser is installed
  4. Quit Desktop
  5. Go up one level and remove the entire "Neo4j Browser" directory
  6. Start Desktop again

Let me know if any of this helps resolve the problem.
