Problems with Chrome 19? Read this first. david.king 5/17/12 11:53 AM
The Chrome stable channel has been updated to 19.0.1084.46 on Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome Frame! With Chrome’s most recent stable channel release, a number of new features have been added, like tab sync. More detailed updates are available on the Chrome Releases Blog.  

This discussion will be mostly outdated by the time Chrome 20 becomes stable. This discussion was created with the same intention as the previous discussion in the Chrome forum. Where bug reports have been filed on our public issue tracker, you can click the star next to issue number to be kept up to date on the progress of the issue.

If you’re new to Chrome or for common issues, please see Chrome’s support documentation. The list of current issues below will be updated periodically as and when new information is available.

1. Downloads are interrupted in Chrome, but finish fine in other browsers.

This is still being discussed in the Chrome forum and investigated on our public issue tracker. If you've not already tried the following steps, please try them first:

1. Check that your download location (Wrench icon > Options > Under the hood > Download location) is accessible with full read write access
2. Check that your download location has available disk space
3. Clear your download history (Wrench icon > Tools > Clear browsing data > Clear download history from the beginning of time)
4. Check that your antivirus is not blocking Chrome or specific file types

If you have tried the above but are still getting interrupted downloads, please capture a net-internals dump:

1. Open a new instance of Chrome
2. Type "chrome://net-internals" in the address bar
3. Open a new tab and start a download
4. Once the download has been interrupted, go back to the "net-internals" tab and select Export on the left nav, and click Dump to file
5. Comment on our public issue tracker and attach your net-internals file. Please include any other system details in your comment so that we can troubleshoot!

2. Constant Flash crashes (not freezes).

If Flash crashes (Chrome 18+), join the discussion in the Chrome forum. Flash crashes are characterised by the error: "The following plug-in has crashed: Shockwave Player." If you are receiving any other error message ("Aw snap," plug-in has become unresponsive, etc), please search for and post on a different thread as these are different symptoms and need to be investigated separately.

NB. Note that not all Flash crashes are the same. An issue that happened months/years ago may not be the same problem others are having today, or even be the same from one user to another. I’ll update this issue if a thread is made solely for Chrome version 19.

3. Problems with Facebook page display.

For a comprehensive list of solutions to resolve issues with Facebook page display, please see this thread in the Chrome forum. If these solutions don’t resolve your issue, please start a new thread.

NB. If you’re seeing a particular issue in all browsers, the issue is likely not specific to Chrome. In this instance, please refer to Facebook’s Help Centre for more information.

4. SSL Security Error: "The site's security certificate is signed using a weak signature algorithm!"

Users reported seeing the above SSL error. The issue has been filed.

5.  SSL Security Error: "Invalid Server Certificate"

The issue is being discussed in the Chrome forum and the bug report for the issue has been filed. This issue has now been marked as fixed, as the common root issue has been resolved.

However, if you still experience this issue or one similar in nature and if you are on a Windows XP computer, please make sure that you have updated your Windows root certificate, by following the steps at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931125. After you have updated, check if the issue still occurs.

If you are seeing this issue on a non-Windows XP machine, please perform the following:
  1. Type "chrome:version" in the address bar and let us know what you see. Screenshot is fine.
  2. Click on the crossed out padlock (on facebook.com, or the site you are seeing this) and take a screenshot of the information there.
  3. Follow the steps at http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=114709#c1 to get more details about the certificate information.
  4. Type "chrome:conflicts" in the address bar and let us know if you spot any conflicts.

Once you have all the information above, please post it on our public issue tracker so that we can investigate further!

6. “Open all bookmarks” greyed out when right-clicking the bookmarks bar.

This issue is being discussed in the Chrome forum and the bug report for the issue has been filed. In the interim, you can have all the bookmarks in a folder and right click on that to open all bookmarks or open the bookmark manager (Ctrl+Shift+O), and in the left pane, right click "Bookmarks bar" and open all bookmarks.

7. “This page has insecure content” warning.

This issue is being discussed in this thread. Please read the relevant Help Center article regarding this issue. The message is informing you of a serious security issue in the site you're visiting. Browsers like Chrome 19+ and Internet Explorer 9+ protect the user by blocking this dangerous content from loading. Normally the site will run just fine with this content blocked, but the infobar gives the you the opportunity to load the content if the site needs it to function. Informing you of the issue also allows you to notify the site operators, so they can get it fixed.

NB. If you’re seeing this warning on all pages you visit, it may be caused by an insecure extension. If the script in the extension is not delivered the same way as the page (securely), it will trigger Chrome to sense that every page viewed has insecure content. To resolve this, disable your extensions and retry. If you no longer get the warning message, one of your extensions is causing the issue. Re-enable them one by one to find the culprit and report the issue to the extension developer in the Web Store.

Issue 6 Update: This menu item was intentionally disabled, but you can continue to open all bookmarks on the bookmarks bar by following the workarounds. You can have all the bookmarks in a folder and right click on that to open all bookmarks or open the bookmark manager (Ctrl+Shift+O), and in the left pane, right click "Bookmarks bar" and Open all bookmarks.

8. Opening a second window via the Chrome icon does not open the homepage.

This issue is being discussed in the Chrome forum and the bug report for the issue has been filed. In the interim, a known workaround is to install the New Tab Redirect! extension and enter your desired homepage URL on the new tab page.

Issue 5: This is a new problem where I get the attached error rather than a warning with a way/button to 'continue anyway'.

I don't see any way to add the URL to an allow list.  This only started happening with the latest update 19.0.1084.46.

I use OS X Lion and the only solution so far is changing my default browser since I can still access these invalid certificates with the 'continue anyway' option on every other browser installed.

I have attempted to follow the links to what you imply is the solution but they don't address how to fix the problem.

I don't use Windows XP
1. See attached '2012-05-20-14-11-07.png' to see that the latest version is the problem.
2. See attached '2012-05-20-14-14-08.png'.  I don't see how that helps solve the problem.
3. How do more details help.  I would like to see the option I used to see which is the option to proceed anyway.
4. Really?!  See '2012-05-20-14-18-50.png'

Thanks for the information +countupir but can you please post that in the thread that's addressing that issue? Thanks!

There doesn't appear to be a specific issue but have you tried uninstalling Chrome and installing the latest Stable version from http://google.com/chrome
Re: Problems with Chrome 19? Read this first. david.king 5/21/12 11:58 PM
New: 9. FunDial appears as your homepage.

This issue is being discussed in this thread. The solution is to check your extensions by going to Wrench > Tools > Extensions > check if you have extensions called "Facemoods", "Funnymoods" or any other suspicious extensions and try disabling/uninstalling them. To disable, uncheck the "Enabled" checkbox; to uninstall, hover over the extension until the trash can appears on the right-side of the "Enabled" checkbox and click it.

If you do not remember installing the extension, it is advisable to perform a malware scan to make sure that there are no other suspicious programs.

Problem solved with Google Chrome 21.0.1145.0 dev. The Error 2 & 124 exist til Google Chrome 20.0.1132.11 Dev. Got no idea what's the cause of it.

Thanks for the feedback!
Re: Problems with Chrome 19? Read this first. Suthern 6/4/12 10:20 AM
The print preview window opens, but stays blank for 5 seconds or so on the first print, and the printer-selection dropdown stays blank as well for the same time.

On subsequint prints, sometimes it's slow (as above), and sometimes it's immediate (like it used to be).

This started happening today (June 2nd), so perhaps it took a while for Chrome 19 to get to me, or perhaps it's an update in .52 (stable). Just thought I'd post this here to see if anyone else has run across the same thing in Chrome 19.

Hi all,
I tried to google this and find for solutions but nothing seems to be fix it.
I have an issue with my Chrome where the fonts are displayed in bold and larger compared to the IE or previously on Chrome. I am running on Win7 32bit.

I have tried to reinstall back the fonts, mounting the install.wim and installing fonts, did a sfc /scannow, some compatibility check on the chrome and a lot more but nothing seems to fix it. Even tried to uninstall and install the chrome and it is the same.

Can someone assist. I usually do not post for help unless i really can't fix it.

Thanks,
KV

Hello,

I've posted over in the general chrome help google group about this issues but not getting much attention.

This doesnt occur in IE and only started directly after restarting Chrome for the 19.0.1084.56 stable update.

Basically some Google pages are interpreting me as being from Japan.  So they redirect to Japanese language page versions.

For e.g. www.google.com/chrome redirects to www.google.co.jp/chrome.

This occurs for Google Maps, Google Reader, Google Chrome but not Gmail or Google Calendar.  I havent really tested any other sites yet.

Someone else seems to have a similar issue

How about instead of blaming outside sources for the "Aw Snap" problem, why doesn't Google just try to fix it. No one's buying the other stuff.

Hey David, thanks for carrying on during my absence. :-)

I just realized that yesterday was this discussion series's first birthday! It's great to see this has become so helpful out there. :-)

I'll be on here for a few minutes today. Tell Jacky and the other TCs I said hi to them for me please :-)

Thanks!

Hi handsomeorlandoman, I think your ''TC'' batch is missing from here. but  i want to know why?
Re: Problems with Chrome 19? Read this first. david.king 7/8/12 4:13 PM
Hey! 

No worries, it was a pleasure honestly. Really? That's awesome! And sure thing! :-)
Re: Problems with Chrome 19? Read this first. handsomeorlandoman 7/8/12 5:13 PM
Hey Tanuj,

Yes I was a TC previously, but I requested to get removed because I couldn't find as much time as before to spend on here and was unable to continue posting often here. I did find a bit extra time on this rather unproductive day, so I decided I'd stop by and say hello.

In case anyone is interested, here is our first discussion. [July 7, 2011]

I asked about you in the Private TC forum.  So you were a TC.  You should come back as TC.  
I hope we haven't ruined David's thread.

Real life > the Chrome forums and my TC membership

Not trying to say I wasn't happy. It was great being a TC and meeting all these friendly people on here. :-)
