Outdated link for operation timeout: DOMException: The operation either timed out or was not allowed. See: #1404

If cancelling authentication in the WebAuthn API authentication dialog, the console will be warned with an uncaught promise, calling out the timeout for the operation. This error gives a link to check out, but this link hasn't worked for months. It seems like the paragraph has since been refactored or removed:

Uncaught (in promise) DOMException: The operation either timed out or was not allowed. See:


Can said link/reference be fixed to link to a working section/paragraph on the W3C/Webauthn documentation?

Steps to reproduce said error:

  1. Open developer tools console on a locally hosted WebAuthn supported page
  2. Launch the authentication WebAuthn API Authenticaton dialog
  3. Activate cancel on a WebAuthn API Authenticaton dialog
  4. Check browser developer tools console for the error

This seems like a chrome bug, not a spec bug. Please file a bug in with the component "Blink>WebAuthentication", thanks!
