Webstorm not opening up page in Chrome when debugging


I am running Webstorm 2018.3 on Windows 10 and using Chrome Canary 72.0.3623.0 64-bit. Recently, when I try to debug webpages with clientside JS, Chrome opens, but the webpage doesn't load. It also says that it can't connect to the JetBrains Chrome extension despite the extension reporting that its connecting to WebStorm. This works fine on macOS with the same version of Chrome Canary and Webstorm.

How can I fix this issue?

Most probable reason of such issues is a network configuration that blocks connections on this port/localhost/etc. Does your network traffic go via proxy? Can you provide your idea.log (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207241085-Locating-IDE-log-files) along with the JetBrains IDE extension console content (http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/WI/LiveEdit, How do I know what's wrong?)? Please don't paste logs content here, upload them to some file server and provide a link.

Also, can you check if debugging works without extension (Use JetBrains IDE Support extension for debugging and Live Edit disabled in Settings | Build, Execution, Deployment | Debugger | Live Edit)?
