Problem with akonadi after recent update

After the recent update of Akonadi to 20.12.0 when ever akonadi is started I am prompted to "select a program to handle the file auth", see attached screenshot. If I select a web browser such as Firefox or Qutebrowser I just see raw HTML. Akonadi itself seems to be running fine, but what doesn't work is that Kmail is unable to fetch emails over IMAP although sending emails does work. I have also included the log output from akonadiconsole and the akonadi selftest.

This seems to be related to it trying to authenticate to the imap server (Gmail), as such I have removed my accounts from Kmail and attempted to re-add them but get the same results.
