Make Headless Google Chrome work in a Ubuntu Docker Container

I'm trying to get [login to view URL] working with PHP7 inside an Ubuntu Docker container. When I run my example script, I get:

Error: Failed to launch chrome!

[0521/013338.678573:ERROR:[login to view URL](89)] Running as root without --no-sandbox is not supported. See [login to view URL]

TROUBLESHOOTING: [login to view URL]

at onClose (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/puppeteer/lib/[login to view URL]:14)

at [login to view URL] (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/puppeteer/lib/[login to view URL]:50)

at emitNone ([login to view URL]:20)

at [login to view URL] ([login to view URL]:7)

at [login to view URL] (readl in /temp/vendor/spatie/browsershot/src/[login to view URL] on line 658

I am passing the "no-sandbox" flag, but it doesn't seem to get the job done. Here's my example code:

$browser = new Browsershot;

$browser->addChromiumArguments(["no-sandbox"])->url("[login to view URL]")->save("[login to view URL]");

As I Google around, I'm getting way over my head in Kernel, SUID, etc. and could use a hand pointing out what is wrong and where to go next.

It is important to note that we will use this to access unknown sites, so I cannot extend special permissions to the container. It needs to work with "docker run -it <imagename> bash"
