Chrome suddenly just closes itself paul b. 6/13/10 8:13 AM
I've in the Dev channel on WinXP, sp3.

Suddenly today, Chrome has developed a habit of just closing itself. It does so silently, with no crash report and nothing left running in task manager.

This has happened twice now in half an hour. Both times I was dragging the mouse on a scrollbar. Only one or maybe two tabs were open, and nothing weird. When I reopened Chrome, the tabs were lost (I have tabs set to be persistent).

What extensions do you have running?  Did anything get updated recently? Windows updates?
Re: Chrome suddenly just closes itself paul b. 6/13/10 10:11 AM
No change that I'm aware of. But the Chrome doesn't give notifications when extensions are updated, and I don't think my new firewall will notify me when the Chrome engine itself is updated.

Do you leave a video running in Chrome?
Re: Chrome suddenly just closes itself paul b. 6/13/10 2:23 PM
no, the tab was very plain vanilla. Hasn't happened since I posted. I just reinstalled my extensions, since I noticed some had stopped working after going beta channel then coming back.

I also have this problem. Like the browser is not even inactive. It just suddenly closes every browsers (Google Chrome) I've opened. Others like Firefox or IE didn't have that problem. Everything was going fine. Its not even lagging. So I really don't understand what's going on. Is it Chrome not installed properly or what? Cause I'm getting frustrated when it closes and I have to reopen every thing again.
ps. This has happened to me like.. 4 times already with approx 30 mins interval.

I don't know. Since I reported the problem it hasn't happened again. Maybe Chrome reads these groups? j/k.

Both times I was using my mouse in Chrome, so I wonder if my gesture program, using a wireless mouse, had something to do with it. But I'm reaching with that one.

I have the same problem, I have also been wondering if it is to do with my mouse as it is always while the mouse is in motion. mystery!

I dropped back to the beta channel, and this and a few other problems seem to have completely cleared up. To do so I had to reinstall some of my extensions, others were ok; but it was painless. The Dev channel was getting a little too hot for my everyday use.

What trouble shooting have you done?  Disable all extensions?
Re: Chrome suddenly just closes itself paul b. 7/23/10 8:18 AM
What channel are you in? I downgraded to Beta and this is no longer an issue. Going inert still is, and it can have the same practical effect, but at least I don't have two issues to contend with.

This happens too often for me, seems to be increasing but maybe I've just been using Chrome more.  It feels like I've "hidden" it and I go looking, thinking maybe I accidentally touched the excel sheet behind it or something.  But it's gone as if I'd closed it.  And no recovery of tabs.
Re: Chrome suddenly just closes itself wár17 § 2/7/11 1:32 PM
retoworks, stable version of Chrome does not close on me. What version of Chrome are you using? What webpage were you using when Chrome closed?  There is an addon that saves extension in Chrome.

I've just started within the past couple of days to have the same unexpected closing of Chrome.
Chrome 11.0.696.57 beta on XP Service Pack 3

Could it be related to this DCOM error in the Event Viewer?
