Problem with Canvas links in latest Safari browser

The latest 14.0.2 update to the Safari web browser on macOS breaks authentication when following some links in Canvas sites. For example, by default it prevents Brown authentication information from passing between Canvas and the Panopto video service (including the Canvas Media Library), preventing the seamless use of Media Library for Canvas users.

To work around this, you can use an alternate browser (Chrome, Firefox, Brave or others), or use the "Privacy" section in Safari Preferences to disable the "Prevent Cross-Site Tracking" preference.
