Fresh typescript app fails with ReferenceError: WebAssembly is not defined

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug

When creating a fresh new project with the following command: npx create-react-app new-project --template typescript

when I start the development server with npm start, I get the following error message:

Failed to compile
ReferenceError: WebAssembly is not defined

Did you try recovering your dependencies?

Yes, I’ve tried removing everything, but this should be a ‘working out of the box’ thing I assume.

npm --version 6.14.4


npx create-react-app --info npx: installed 92 in 45.434s

Environment Info:

current version of create-react-app: 4.0.0 running from /home/oliver/.npm/_npx/594267/lib/node_modules/create-react-app
