Local Graph Glitches when Opening a Community Plugin GitHub Page

Not a breaking issue, but I’ve searched for titles similar to what I describe here and didn’t find any. My apologies if this bug is already tracked.

Here’s a recording of me reproducing it: link

Are you able to reproduce?

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open the Help Vault (it too happens in my personal vaults, but this step is to make sure it’s not plugin / css related)
  2. Open the Local Graph
  3. Go to Settings > Community Plugins > Browse
  4. Pick a plugin from the list
  5. Click on its GitHub page link
  6. Close your Settings pane

Expected result

The Local Graph should remain where it stood.

Actual result

The nodes of the Local Graph are gone.
