It's not crashing the entire browser, it's just programmed so that something central about user interaction/updates has to wait on the plug-in. If that freezes, it has to wait for preset time-out condition before the browser can forcefully close it. If you can pick out the particular Chrome.exe in Task Manager that is the Flash plugin process, you can force close it yourself earlier and the browser will resume sooner.

Unless and until Google tries to sandbox the plug-ins like it does tabs/processes, or it changes the timeout conditions, this is just something that can happen.
It's still freezing the entire browser rather than a single tab, or even just the tabs which have flash on them, which is pretty bad.

And why is it taking them so long to fix this stupid problem? They control Chrome, they control Youtube. It doesn't happen on embedded videos so just make every youtube page an embedded video now.

Weird problem I have on SA, wondering if anyone else has it:

If a thread I've previously read is close to the bottom of a page (say, within 6 or 7 replies), and I click on "jump to newest unread post," I don't jump to the newest unread post...I always jump to the bottom of the page.

This only happens with a few unread posts that are at the bottom of a page. If there are a few unread posts but in the middle of a page, I'll go right where I left off.

I'm in OSX 17.0.963.46, and a lot of Flash content isn't showing up for me unless it's fullscreen. YouTube is fine, but otherwise I get a lot of blank space. It's been happening for a little while.

e: Now YouTube's not working. It's all super inconsistent. Also the audio always works (if you can find the play button!)

This happens to me every once in a while in Gmail. One day I will read an email, then the next I will go back to that email and it's just white text. I end up copy/pasting the text into notepad to read it.

Newest version of AdBlock was disabled because an update for it now allows it more permissions...when I go to enable, it now says it can access data on all website, and tabs and browsing activity...

I'm don't know about this case, but "data on all websites" is an incredibly vague statement and many extensions have an explanation for what it means in their case in the description. It might say that if the extension, for example, needs to collect info on what's an ad on which site (this is completely out of my rear end but you get the point)

On the page for AdBlock Plus, it mentions that Chrome shows that warning for all extensions that modify the contents of pages. I highly doubt the permissions were different before. If they were, though, feel free to .

Fake Edit:

Chrome AdBlock posted:

** NOTE REGARDING PERMISSION UPGRADES, February 2 2012 **

A bug in Chrome is disabling AdBlock and asking you to re-confirm the permissions that you agreed to when you installed. It was triggered when I tried to add popup blocking to AdBlock.

Don't worry, nothing nasty is going on, other than the fact that AdBlock wasn't supposed to be disabled!

You can safely confirm and re-enable AdBlock. Sorry for the mess. See chromeadblock.com/help/?disablebug for a little more detail.

Updated beta channel today and now when I click urls in 3rd party programs on Windows (like if I double click an url in mIRC), it opens the url in a tab and then opens another Chrome window to a blank page over the top of the other Chrome window with the actual valid tab in it.

Anyone else getting this?

Anyone on the dev branch having trouble with streaming video to show on sites like Youtube, or even when they are embedded? I hear the audio, but don't get any images to load.

That's style, man.

No it's meant to be that way now - not exactly user-friendly, I guess they're trying to imply that it's another tab waiting to be brought forth into existence or something. What bugs me most is it just looks slightly wrong, something about the curves and the angles doesn't fit with the shape of the tabs

"We don't need a toilet. The pile of clothes in the hallway has worked fine for us for years, and it will continue to work."

Is anyone aware of any extensions that function similarly to the RSS-ticker addon for Firefox that makes new RSS updates scroll across the bottom of the browser window until read / clicked? I used it to keep track of good deals in the coupons forums but I can't seem to find any equivalent within Chrome.

CHROME 17 IS OUT YALL

I hear it already: "pfft, just another Chrome version."

Well guess what guys? This one has REAL RESOURCE BLOCKING. Finally, Firefox-quality AdBlock and NoScript capabilities for everyone! No more "load-then-hide," now extensions can actually keep poo poo from loading. I use ABP for Chrome and it seems to be working in that regard already.

Not once you update to version 17 it looks like.

Adblock Site posted:

Adblock Plus doesn't block in-video ads, background images, XMLHttpRequests

Cause: Google Chrome currently doesn't allow blocking any of these request types
Solution: Update to Chrome 17 or install the experimental Adblock Plus development build (requires enabling experimental APIs).


I installed Canary last night, and the default search engine is Bing, what's the reason for that?

Did the 17 update come with a new version of flash? I'm pretty sure I had 10-point-something a couple of days ago and now it's 11.1 and Youtube is lagging like hell. Playing a video in Youtube brings everything else into a halt.

I just updated and it looks like the icons for extensions are slightly smaller now, of course I can't go back to 16 so I can't check and see if it's just me seeing things.

I wish more programs would update like Chrome, seamless and silent and you have no idea it has even happened unless you notice any UI changes. I just wish for installs that can be made silent without a bunch of screwing around.

This is more of a Google thing than a Chrome thing, but this seems the most relevant thread, so I remember that there was an option a while back to block sites from your search results; did Google get rid of that or is it buried in a menu somewhere?

EDIT: Huh, the link isn't working. Look for Personal Blocklist.

I seem to remember there being some way to do that without the extension, but that may have just been a temporary thing to help them rejigger their algorithms to prevent content farms from dominating every search result.
