For whatever reason all my Chrome extensions no longer work properly, all the icons are there, but when I click any of them the popup box is just a tiny square with no content. Restarting the browser, and disabling/re enabling them did not fix the problem.

Here is a screenshot:

enter image description here

This is using Chrome Version 27.0.1430.3 dev-m. Perhaps it is just a problem with this build, but I did not notice the problem directly following the last update, it has been a few day, so that seems unlikely.

However on the same machine running Version 27.0.1432.0 canary it works just fine.

I had the same issue and I resolved it by:

  1. Go to chrome://flags/

  2. Then look for 'GPU compositing on all pages' and change the value from Default to Disabled

This solved the issue for me. This issue seems after the latest dev update to Google Chrome. This is a temporary workaround.
