Rstudio Viewer "session.viewhtml....." not found


I recently installed a daily build version of R Studio, 1.4.671. Since that installation, anything that runs in the viewer (e.g. gt or lavaanPlot) gives me an error like this:

/session/viewhtml528813ce72d/index.html?viewer_pane=1&capabilities=1&host=http%3A%2F%2F127.0.0.1%3A27742 not found

I have fully uninstalled 1.4.671, restarted my computer, and reinstalled the version that worked this morning, 1.3.1056. Not sure

This is becoming quite a problem because I am not able to easily see any model coefficients that I am currently working on (in a neat way, they are messy in the console).

I have also reset RStudio's state following and removed my .Renviron file.

Update: if the error shows but I choose to export as HTML, the HTML file works.

Update2: both running Shiny and knitting an RMarkdown document to HTML works. It's just displaying something inside RStudio's viewer that is causing issues.

This is a known issue with R 4.0.0 (exactly) that has been fixed by the R team in R 4.0.2. Try upgrading to R 4.0.2 and letting us know if that resolves the issue!
