Error opening Obsidian. Cannot read properties of null (reading 'parent')


Sometimes when I open my vault, I get the error:

An error occurred while loading Obsidian. TypeError: Cannot read properties of null (reading parent)

If I reload the app in Restricted mode and then enable my extensions, everything is fine. If i’m to close my Obsidian and re-open, it will continue to work fine.
It seems to mostly occur once I swap devices (Windows to Windows).

This issue has been going on for a while now, and latest versions of Obsidian have not caught it.

Thanks for any suggestions!
