I'm having trouble diagnosing this in part because I don't know what to look for on Google. About a week ago my Adblock and download icons on Chrome went all "noisy":

These noisy bits blur around in different patterns every time I open a new page. This persists across restarting the app and the computer.

Anyone know what the deal is? And/or how to go about fixing it?

Try first clearing the cache (Ctrl+Shift+Delete), then try updating your extensions (chrome://extensions->Developer Mode->Update Extensions Now) – Synetech Mar 29 '12 at 1:52
Thanks @Synetech— good advice. What I outline below fixed the problem for me. – buildsucceeded Mar 29 '12 at 19:36

Got it!

  1. Uninstall the extension (Adblock, in this case)
  2. RESTART (Missed this one the first time, and the problem came back)
  3. Reinstall the app.
