Wifi Menu freezes

I have got a weird problem on my Gnome Manjaro. When I click on the WIFI->Select Network the popup window freezes along with the OS. I could do nothing except Hard shutdown the laptop. However when click on WIFI>Wifi Settings I am able to switch network. This is happening recently. I was using the kernel with Version no. 5.4.108-1 LTS and I tried to switch to latest Kernal but the same issue. Can someone guide me on this issue

I have same problem after the update. Able to change Network but, can not quit from the Wi-Fi Menu. Whenever this happens (while changing Network) I have to kill my session.

I am facing the same issue.

Hello all,

The issue got fixed by itself after today’s update. So please update and check if it resolves.
