How do I read your display name? Exactly as it sounds, of course :P (it says "My name is Dan" in broad, phonemic IPA transcription).

comment What causes garbled text in Chrome URL text field?
Just closing and reopening Chrome resolves the issue, no language change needed. The translation theory is interesting. It does change font like Notepad font.

Using http (non-SSL) results in the same issues.

@Ramhound it's not an ISP issue. I can access Google via HTTPS and HTTP using any other browser. This only happens in Chrome.

comment Disconnect all computers that are signed in to my Google Account
In the future, please specify any special qualifiers like if you want a solution that doesn't involve changing the password. This technically is a solution to the original question, even if not the best one.

Not without having access to those computers and being able to sign out manually from them.

comment Disconnect all computers that are signed in to my Google Account
Because the account settings on the other end must log in to be signed in. If the password changes, it will have to ask for the new credentials in order to sign in. If you're paranoid, delete the account and start a new one.

I just did it successfully on Windows 7 with the Alt decimal code. Not sure what else to tell you.

@jhstuckey you don't enter a + sign with the decimal value, just the number....

@jhstuckey also note that you must reboot for any registry changes to take effect, so that may be why it didn't work....

I'm working with dates from 0 C.E. through about 1700 C.E. Using yyyy also forces the dates to 1900.

comment How can I disable Chrome's address bar search autocomplete?
I even checked about:flags and there was nothing that lets you control one without affecting enabling/disabling the other

Then my answer below is the best response. Beyond that there is nothing more you can do. It is either all or nothing. You cannot modify the behavior of how you dismiss suggestions. Suggestions and autocomplete are the same service.

comment How can I disable Chrome's address bar search autocomplete?
I don't think Google differentiates between autocomplete and suggestions with search - it's all or nothing. Are you possibly referring to autofill (completing forms)?

comment How can I disable Chrome's address bar search autocomplete?
I'm presuming the question is that in the title, it is unclear from reading your question. You seem to be saying, "I want to eliminate suggestions, but at the same time I don't."

How long did you leave the CMOS battery out before replacing it? Try removing it for 24 hours then putting it back in and starting up. Ths will effectively reset the BIOS.
