|Aw Snap on ~50% of sites||kdrive23||6/12/12 7:59 AM|
I have followed the steps outlined in the troubleshooting guide, including checking my firewall, checking for malware, renaming the Default folder and disabling the one extension I was using.
I've also cleared my browsing history and re-installed Chrome three times. I am running Mac OS.
This just started yesterday.
I am running Chrome 19.0.1084.56
Here are a couple of the web sites where I always see Aw Snap:

I can load up http://reason.com/blog page without issue. I am using latest Stable version of Chrome and Windows XP.
Anything change between yesterday and today? Any software or hardware change? Reverse the change.
When you cleared cache, did you select the time frame, Since the beginning of time.
|Re: Aw Snap on ~50% of sites||kdrive23||6/12/12 8:57 AM|
When I cleared the cache, I could only do it for the last hour. If I tried to click the drop-down to choose a longer timeframe, the whole browser crashed (which is obviously a whole other issue).
I have no problems accessing reason.com at home on my Windows 7 machine with Chrome - only on the Mac.
I updated to the latest version of Chrome yesterday, but the Aw Snap was happening before that.

Did that (see my original post)...still no dice.
I'll just stick with Firefox, I guess.
Thanks for your help!

Re-installing Chrome does not clear your profile.

See my original message:

for all those *who tried everything but nothing works.
try this also:
2)go to my computer.
3)click on the address bar and select everything.
4)paste the below link with your user name or you can manually go there
5)rename 'chrome.exe' to 'chrome1.exe'
6)then open chrome.
did work for me.this for windows 7.
(*nothing else other than 'about google chrome' opens for you')

Thanks but I'm the only one in this thread who's having a problem, and I'm on a Mac.

To clarify, did you follow these instructions to create a new user profile? You only mention renaming the default folder. If you haven't done this already, you can also sign into Chrome so that you can retrieve your bookmarks, extension(s), etc via the instructions here when you're in your new profile.
In addition, can you please answer the following troubleshooting questions?
|Re: Aw Snap on ~50% of sites||kdrive23||6/13/12 8:28 AM|
These instructions pretty much boil down to "rename the Default folder", no? http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en-GB&answer=142059
I did that, and did not transfer any information from my old profile.
I'm on Mac OS X 10.7.2 (I should also iterate that I'm normally a Windows users and and not all that familiar with the ins and outs of Macs)
The extension I was using is called reasonable: code.google.com/p/reasonable/
I still get Aw Snap when I go incognito.

Was just clarifying on creating a new browser profile :)
In addition, what anti virus software do you have installed? You mention checking your firewall, but did you temporarily disable your anti virus and firewall application and reopening Chrome after exiting. "Aw Snap" is just a generic/general crash message and so there are many different root problems for this message. If you have already gone through all the troubleshooting steps here, please enable crash reporting by going to Wrench > Settings > Advanced Settings > Privacy > And check the box for Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Google. The next time a crash occurs, a 16-character crash ID will be generated. Type "chrome:crashes" in the address bar and let us know what is the most recent crash ID that you have listed by posting it on this thread.
When you post, provide details as to what you were doing, or what steps led to the crash (e.g. loading a YouTube video?), so that we can group similar symptoms together and try to replicate it.

Thanks Jacky. I am using Symantec for antivirus and unfortunately I don't have any control over it as it is a work computer. But I have been using the same anti-virus all along and not had any problems until recently.
I noticed on reason.com/blog that the text loads, but the images and ads do not, and then the site crashes.
At any rate, here is the crash ID from my latest visit to reason.com/blog:

This one happened when I was logged into a WordPress site and tried to expand a drop-down menu. I have actually had this happen on the Chrome settings itself, when I tried to expand the drop-down menu to clear my browsing history (i.e. the drop-down that asks to clear the history for the past hour)

i have the same issues on urls like https://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95669&p=e_awsnap (yes the aw snap help page crashes too)
for days - i now tried stable, beta, and dev channels - deleted the Chrome folder - tried synced and unsynced, and incognito - reported bugs via chrome://crashes - and no progress :(
looks like i have to switch to safari?

I love how this thread suddenly died right after I provided the requested crash report information.
Good thing I have Firefox.
