Yes I find something, For some reason, I wait just a little and install and uninstall figma and it works! I don’t know why but, that works to me, I don’t know if it’s the real solution, but I remember I made it when I had the problem. Hope It works!

Hi there facing the same issue over here on windows. Any remedy or solutions currently.

try using different browser. I had the same problem. I changed my default browser to microsoft edge and completed the login.

Thank’s, it worked!

Thanks Bro, its work for me, you just change the default browser to edge, then login and voilaa …

The desktop app is Electron, it’s more than capable of hosting a login flow. Requiring an external browser is kludgy and lazy Figma.

Same here hahaha, please figma read it and please fix it

Cause I can’t use figma desktop and I’m not used to using figma in the browser

Same. I don’t like using the browser because it is laggy and the zoom doesn’t work properly. But the desktop app is giving me a real headache logging in and also loading my file. Takes forever and it doesn’t load.

Tried deleting the app and downloading it again. Tried logging in using a different browser. Chrome, edge. Mozilla don’t allow me to open because it’s unsafe, or has some missing certificate. Tried signing in using different account. Tried creating a new account. Nothing seems to work.

Why do they need to link it to browser to authenticate?
