comment Google Chrome new tab page thumbnails no longer fit and wrap out of view
Miraculously, the links in the top right corner have suddenly reappeared! They were missing this morning and they are back this afternoon - and I've not even restarted Chrome! (?)

comment Google Chrome new tab page thumbnails no longer fit and wrap out of view
Admittedly I'm on a different platform, but I had tried zooming the page (to try and resolve the problem), but this changed nothing. Although "the problem" I was seeing was an actual change to the CSS on the page, which wouldn't be caused by zooming on the client-side?

Yes, I see the same - whilst I have the 8 thumbnails back, I no longer see the links in the top right either.

@clsturgeon Thanks for that! And amazingly, after a few comments on that other thread it's suddenly fixed! Didn't even have to restart Chrome! Is it fixed for you? If so you can post "something to that effect" as an answer and I'll accept.

comment Clearing redirect cache in Chrome and Safari
Just to test the cache in Chrome... open the Object Inspector. Goto the Network tab and make sure the "Disable cache" checkbox is checked. Now load your page - do you still get the "cached" redirect?

comment Seeing “large fonts” on websites in all browsers
If you see these large fonts in all browsers then this suggests there is a setting on your computer (perhaps to do with "Accessibility") that has changed. FWIW I cannot reproduce the "large fonts" on the website in your screenshot with default browser settings.

comment Google Chrome new tab page thumbnails no longer fit and wrap out of view
Right, gotcha. Didn't know there was that option! No, I have not "reset it". But I don't really want to "reset it" at the current time... got too many tabs I want to keep open, cookies, extensions and not to mention the frequently visited pages.

comment Google Chrome new tab page thumbnails no longer fit and wrap out of view
I have a funny feeling this is unique to me, but not sure how - other than Chrome's "quirkiness". What do you mean by "reset"? The browser has been restarted and the PC rebooted several times since this started. I should have said (for completeness)... I'm on version 44.0.2403.130 m (which Chrome reports is "up to date").

comment Why does my Chrome browser window go completely black a few seconds after loading the website page?
"the website" - a particular website? Or all websites? (You can still post a link to a screenshot.)

comment Customize Chrome auto-completion in address bar?
Can you get the expected URL for any typed sequence? Is the expected URL in the auto-complete list somewhere? Are there other results that are perhaps deemed more "relevant" above it?

comment Mouse sensitivity not being applied
Is it possible that this mouse has its own "driver" installed that is resetting it back to its own setting on reboot?

comment How to remove “Download Windows 10” icon on Windows 7 System Tray (“official adware”)?
I also used this method and simply renamed the folder. It does get rid of the icon in the system tray, however, Windows Update still keeps prompting me to "Reserve your free upgrade to Windows 10 today". Perhaps it is preferable to uninstall the update after all?

comment Keyboard Shortcut to Toggle Mirror Displays in OSX Yosemite
Curious, this page on Mac Keyboard Shortcuts lists CommandBrightness Down "Turn display mirroring on or off when your Mac is connected to more than one display." (?)

comment YouTube videos black, only audio in Firefox
@BigChris, Won't HTML5 video take priority over Flash these days - I thought Flash is only used as a fallback? FWIW, YouTube works OK for me in Firefox and I don't have Flash installed.

comment Why is Chrome rendering Google logo incorrectly?
I was going to suggest checking the md5 hash of the downloaded image, but if the downloaded image is displaying OK!? FWIW, the md5 hash of the logo11w.png at google.com that I see is 57e396baedfe1a034590339082b9abce

comment Why is Chrome rendering Google logo incorrectly?
The same image (same URL path) seems to be located on different Google domains. You could trying accessing these, such as google.co.id/images/srpr/logo11w.png - Don't suppose you've seen corrupt images anywhere else?

comment Why is Chrome rendering Google logo incorrectly?
When you view that URL directly in Chrome does it display OK? Incidentally that is the same URL that I see on the New Tab page (in Chrome) and it displays OK for me. Same version, same OS. (42.0.2311.152 m Win 7 Pro x64)
