It sounds like your problem is reliably reproducible. Try testing the same procedure with an empty/new user profile.
- Close all Chrome windows
- Navigate to the parent folder of your user-data directory and rename it to something like
User Data.temp or
- Run Chrome and navigate to some pages (to build up the history a bit)
- Try editing the address in the Omnibar
If it crashes, then there is something wrong with your Chrome installation. Try updating it or uninstalling and reinstalling a fresh copy.
If it does not crash, then the problem is with your user profile. In that case, you can consider deleting your old profile (probably undesirable) and using the new one. If you want to keep the old profile (likely), then delete the new
User Data folder and rename the old one back to
User Data (consider making a backup copy). Now run Chrome again and clear your history. (If it only happens with some URLs, then open the History page (Ctrl+H), click Edit items... in the top-right corner, and delete just the offending items.
