Initial navigation using selenium chrome docker image is timing out on initial navigation to a webpage. I can reproduce it when navigating to the page in VNC as well. Is there any settings I can set to speed up this initial navigation? Any help would be appreciated. This just started occuring last week, but doesn't seem to be related to an upgrade.

My specs:
RHEL 7.9
Docker-CE 20.10.23-3

If you are on Java use
You don't need selenium.
