I only wish the chrome SALR extension was as good as the Firefox one. Now I have just disabled chrome SALR and use fancy forums. I really wish more people worked on the extension, ferg seems too busy with awful app.

I would add Hoverzoom to the OP as well.

Does anyone know how to make favorites appear first when using the chrome bar or whatever its called?

Right click on the top of chrome by the tabs and there is a Reopen closed tab thing

Are you guys talking about re-opening the last tabs you had open when you close and re-open Chrome? Because, if so, that's in Preferences/Options->"On Startup: Reopen the pages that were open last" (under the "Basics" heading, first page.) Been there since near day 1.

Unless I'm completely misunderstanding you.

No I meant the actual chrome window, its never exactly right.

Anyone gotten tab syncing to work? I enabled on both my computers and no luck.

For screen capture I use imgur, it can take screenshots of pages and auto-upload them to imgur

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.

Do I still need adblock experimental?

Honestly weird stuff seems to rarely happen in Beta, usually Dev gets all the glitches and they're caught before they filter down to the later releases. But anyway, have a look in chrome://flags and try enabling the Disable Print Preview one - I don't know if it will actually help but I think it just appeared in this release, so it's worth a try. If not, there's not some automatic 'resize to page' thing enabled is there? If the printout is shrinking it sounds like an output scaling issue

Yes but there is virtually no reason to run beta/dev if you can't handle poo poo like this.

Keep in mind it doesn't just sync the tab automatically, you need to go to chrome://sessions/ to see your other computers.

Chrome/Google Sync keeps loving up the order of my bookmark bar bookmarks. I am using the latest regular version.

Every two or three days I will open Chrome on one of three PCs it's installed on, and after just a few moments the bookmarks bar will completely re-order itself. I do not find, but have not paid strict attention to, problems in other bookmark folders, except for a few bookmarks that would reappear, doubled or tripled up, again and again.

How can I fix this huge frustration? Googling the issue comes up with far too many varied results.

Try supersorter. I use the autosorter thing.

I can't use the vanilla forums any more after using fancy forums, anal since they fixed the timg thing can you just remove that from the extension? I don't even know if it needs removing, mostly I just wanted to say thank you for making the extension and I will continue to use it.

I asked this before but no one answered, is there some reason that Chrome logs me out of literally *everything* upon exit? I switched from Safari because video in safari was running like rear end for some reason. But it's a pain to have to log in to every site anytime I close the browser.

I disabled all addons, cookies are on etc...still nothing. Not in porn mode either.

When poo poo like this happens to me I blow away the User Data folder and just let chrome sync everything back for me. It blows away my extension settings but I use Chrome for most of my web passwords so its not a big deal.

Jul 18, 2007



I feel like Chrome has reached the point where the stable version is the best one to use for the average and even power user. Features come out in a timely fashion and the only thing I can think that has happened is the flash bug that was crashing youtube and that was fixed within a couple days I think.

I don't know where the attitude is, I was only trying to help.

I switched to Adblock since ABP hadn't updated the filters in like 4 months and it seems fine, I haven't noticed any difference really.

I'm having serious issues with the stable release of chrome. Every day it fails to start up: I click the icon and it highlights as if it's loading then fades and never opens. I've tried deleting the default profile but that doesn't help. The only solution I've found is re-running the setup program. I have to do this every day. Any ideas what's wrong?

Are you deleting the entire User Profile folder under App Data? I have done this a couple times and its like a brand new install.

Yeah, I deleted the Default folder from \AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data and it's still the same. Am I missing anything?

I'm also using a portable version of chrome to use a separate profile, could this be an issue?

I have had all sorts of issues with running portable versions of chrome. Also delete the entire User Data folder. Just move it, it will re-create the folder and this way you have a backup.

Anyone having issues with YouTube HTML5 on Version 20.0.1132.57? About 50% of the time, when I go to a YouTube page, it'll have a greyed out window for the video (the same as the click-to-plugin windows) and say "Couldn't load plugin." This is only for HTML5 videos and it's fine once I reload the page.

I have been having all sorts of issues with chrome and youtube lately, I need to refresh a couple times to get the video to load. I disabled my Fancy Tube extension and it seems OK now, try a incognito window maybe?

Say, what is the security situation for saved passwords and stuff on Chrome? I don't use it right now, I use a password vault program, but I really have no idea if it is more secure in any practical sense.

I would imagine pretty secure, since you can encrypt all the sync data and even better use Google authenticator.

I went back a couple of pages but didn't see anything about a download manager for Chrome. My connection sucks, and if I start downloading multiple things at once they'll all eventually time out. I'd like the ability to queue up a few things and have them DL one at a time, but Chrome doesn't seem to be able to do it natively (that I found). I'm on Win7 and About Chrome tells me I'm using Version 22.0.1229.26 beta-m.

Any ideas?

I am pretty sure chrome doesn't natively support this. Something like jdownloader, free download manager or something like that would work.
