isAuthenticated sometimes is false after successful OAuth login (Google)

Hello! I know there is a plenty of topics describing isAuthenticated bug but unfortunately none of the answers did help. We experience an issue with auth0-react which makes our app unusable. Sometimes after a successful login useAuth0 returns both isLoading and isAuthenticated to be true. My client and their colleagues use Chromium but I could reproduce it in Safari. error is always undefined. The code:

useEffect(() => {
    if (!isAuthenticated && !isLoading && !error) {
      void loginWithRedirect();
  }, [error, isAuthenticated, isLoading, loginWithRedirect]);

As you can see we re-direct a user when the component is rendered which makes the app reload from 0 to around 20 times. After those weird re-loads we finally get isAuthenticated to be true.

This issue appears on version 1 as well as 2 of auth0-react. I tried different workarounds (wait for some time before calling loginWithRedirect, check if the NextJS router is ready) but nothing helped. I hope we’ll find a solution. Thank you in advance!

Update. That’s what auth0 logs show:

That’s what one of the latest logs give:

I hope this helps.
