When trying to upload a file in Chrome browser, the select file dialog crashes when I paste a path with double quotes; e.g. when I try to upload a photo.

How can I get around this issue?

can you share a crash dump of Chrome? –  magicandre1981 Jul 27 '13 at 5:53
How can I get that crash dump @magicandre1981? –  Nam G VU Jul 27 '13 at 7:59
Which Windows do you use? Starting with Vista Sp1 you can use the WER service: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb787181%28VS.85%29.aspx In XP you can use ProcDump.exe from sysinternals. –  magicandre1981 Jul 27 '13 at 18:38
I go to the crash dump folder on my Windows 7 PC and I see no dump file there for Chrome browser, just the other application i.imgur.com/glEwstS.png?1 –  Nam G VU Jul 29 '13 at 7:30
try this .reg file: dropbox.com/s/8g8gwlci8ws7rt1/WER_Chrome_full.reg . This configures Windows to create dumps of Chrome into C:\localdumps. Zip and upload this dump. After you got the dump, use this .reg file to stop dump creation: dropbox.com/s/1ef98u5y1dxko0k/WER_Chrome_full_uninstall.reg –  magicandre1981 Jul 29 '13 at 18:22
