Pulse Secure constantly opening Safari on MacOS

Pulse Secure constantly opening Safari on MacOS

MacOS Mojave 10.14.6

Pulse Secure 9.1.11

Chrome 90.0.4430.85

 

I'm using Pulse Secure to access my company's VPN. I log in successfully in Chrome, it opens Pulse which connects. Then Safari opens to a blank page for no reason. If I close it, it immediately opens again, still on a blank page

 

With the previous version of Pulse, Safari would open on connection, but at least I could close it. Now it refuses to stay closed

Re: Pulse Secure constantly opening Safari on MacOS

My default browser is set to Chrome, by the way, so there's no reason Pulse should ever open Safari

Re: Pulse Secure constantly opening Safari on MacOS

for the initial login, safari should be opening as it is statically set to open safari. unfortunately, we have not seen reports of this happening yet; if you have not done so, please open a case with our support team for investigation

@cjdshaw This should not be happening if the Pulse Client is set to use the Embedded browser.

@cjdshaw That setting has to be pushed from the VPN server or we would need to get the preconfiguration file from the server (had to downloaded by admin) which we can installed using jamcommand - https://kb.pulsesecure.net/articles/Pulse_Secure_Article/KB44037/?kA1f1000000PGjd

Same issue here with MacOS Big Sur 11.4. 
There is any fix for this issue?
