Apache LDAP authentication error for Chrome and not for Firefox

Hi people, I've implemented LDAP authentication in my Apache2 2.4.38 server.

The authentication works OK.

When I use Firefox web browser I authenticate OK and I have not error logs
at all, but when I use Chrome web browser the authentication is OK but the
Apache error.log has several entries and also the users are blocked for the
AD because there are many authentication failures.

I show you the defaul-ssl.conf and error.log files in order to get your
help please:

/etc/apache2/sites-enables/default-ssl.conf:
