Chrome hangs the whole Mac OS after most recent update of OSX Mountain Lion (2.0 from 13 Nov 2012) higrys 11/17/12 5:22 AM
I have an issue with hanging OSX while using Chrome. It freezes the whole Mac immediately and completely while fast scrolling form fields when some page with long form fields is open in Chrome (or it seems so). I have to long-press the power button and restart the machine to get out of it.

It seems it started after the most recent system update of OSX (Mac Book Air and Mac Book Pro Update 2.0) - which happened 13 Nov (rather than after Chrome update) - so i'd certainly attribute it to Apple rather than Google.

I also posted an issue in apple forum: https://discussions.apple.com/message/20302430#20302430 but maybe Chrome guys can find it faster and give more info to Apple where to look for a problem (and maybe workaround it faster on Chrome).... I am an IT pro, so if there are any logs/whatever I can provide to make resolving it faster - please let me know.
 
It seems to happening when i am scrolling some form field inside the chrome fast using the touch pad. It happened to me first time some 3 days ago, and already three times today and tomorrow - always in the same circumstances - when scrolling fast the content of some form field when in Chrome.
 
There are no entries in the system.log to indicate what's happened - the logs that appear just before the crash are also appearing elsewhere in logs, so they are probably not related:

I'm having this same issue.  It has happened twice today and has happened about once a day for the past few days.  Both times were while I was scrolling through a long web page.

Macbook Pro Retina 2.3GHz i7, 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3
OSX 10.8.2
Chrome Version 24.0.1312.14 beta

Same here on two different instances of OS X.

Any news on this?

can't help specifically here, but i will note that the log suggests macosx's new insanely-over-tight internal-security framework is having problems.  those errors are being thrown by the Sandboxing rejecting method calls.  

the method calls look to be very low-level (the log suggests they are not to the Darwin kernel but to the inner Mach micro-kernel), which is a bit odd.

but truly bizarre is the machine locking up from those errors.  the POINT of sandboxing is to quietly block/kill apps which try to do "naughty" things.  the worst that's supposed to be possible to happen, even if the breach is so bad that the app is killed rather than just blocked (v.v.v.rare), is that the sandbox+app are closed down and the machine carries on blithely.

this screams devel cockup by apple.

unfortunately, it's a bit of a bear rolling-back "up"grades in macosx at the best of times, let alone in the excrescences that are Lion and Mountain Lion.  still, worth having a hard look round the interwub to see if/how you can do it.  in this that search, as the saying goes, "google is your friend".  ;)

Or I could just use a browser that works!

Same here. Started occuring a month ago. Always when scrolling a web page.

late 2012 rMBP 2.7 16GB
25.0.1364.172 (Official Build 187217)

Tried:
1) Clearing caches
2) Clearing web history
3) Disabling graphics switching (which forces the OS to use nvidia 650m)
4) Running on battery power or plugged in.
5) Closing other apps

When it happens, first the scroll stops, animations stop (i.e. flash), then after 1-2 seconds mouse cursor stops responding to touchpad. Curiously, background music (i.e. VLC) keeps playing. Hardware buttons are unresponsive. The only way to reboot is to hold power button.

I've installed OS X 10.8.3 and this issue appears to have gone away
