On one of my computers, I can no longer change options in Chrome extensions (and some have just stopped working).

If I look in the Developer Tools: Javascript Console, the following shows up when loading the options windows for some extensions:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'cache' of null

Any ideas of what went wrong or how I should go about resolving this issue?

You might want to uninstall and then reinstall the wanton extensions. If that doesn't work, then reinstall Chrome. If that still doesn't work, use another browser and ask a professional geek about this. (By the way, Chrome is not very secure.)

By the way, if you're thinking about recompiling all the extensions, that likely won't help. You cannot compile a Chrome extension into Chrome without a special compiler (and I don't know where to find it). – Jonathan Reno Aug 27 '12 at 19:16
