Chrome problem


[link to this post]
 
Has anyone had any problems with Chrome with the latest version (and the previous one too) where it all tab clicking, options etc become completely unresponsive - and prevent tabs from any other program from working too... It also prevents the close button from working too (and can only close with a right-click over the icon).

It happened with Windows XP and a totally new installation of Windows 7

Yeah I've seen this. I think it's actually a problem with Java but I haven't tracked it down.

Yes, apparently a few people have. After upgrading to 4GB in case it was a memory problem, it actually turned out to be the wireless keyboard causing the problem. As it suddenly started happening, its possible either the signal was being scrambled or the batteries were low - replace with a PS/2 (will be getting a USB one sometime in the new year) and the problem is solved!

Re: Chrome problem, me too with this

Wife & I each have a standalone tower pc thru a router and both run XP. We both use Chrome. Just lately she cannot read the newspaper front pages in Sky News. It shows the first paper but won't cycle thru the rest. My system however is 100%

It is a new problem with Chrome? I compared all her settings with my own (the same), made sure it wasn't the AV prog and did a full AV scan anyway. I un-installed Chrome and then re-installed it. She was able to read the front pages just once, then again the glitch.

I re-enabled Windows Explorer for her and now she can successfully read all the pages (there are usually about 10 newspapers featured) in IE but still not in Chrome. The glitch cannot be at Sky because I am functional. It cannot be her pc because IE does the deed. It isn't the router because I have tried swopping the leads. What is left? Chrome.....

I think it must have been a newly added "feature"....
