What Happened there? Applications keep updating and Chrome keeps getting RAM getting after every update. That's why after 100 tabs, Chrome would get Choppy as it had started using Virtual Memory as RAM cannot accommodate any more data and it crashes as it reaches 150 due to both RAM Overflow and Page File Overflow. Of course, the number of tabs may differ ...

0xC0000017 means a process couldn't start because there isn't enough free RAM. Try increasing the size of your page file or installing more RAM. Modern sites tend to use a lot of media assets and heavy Javascript libraries which might consume more RAM than you would think.

For those wanting to do it natively within Chrome without downloading a plugin you can do the following: Click the "Print" button In that preview popup, select "Pages Per Sheet: 2" on the print preview. This works for me.. It's obviously not the best solution, but it sure does work! I could probably whip up some javascript to make it go full screen too, ...

Well on version 74 now and it works better, coming up every time I click on the lock icon in the address bar for example. It took a while to fix, maybe around 62-66?

Simplest method: restore it from your backup. Less certainty: by using the file recovery software of your choice.

PMA files are for data collection- CrashpadMetrics-active.pma should not be removed manually. This thread provides most of the answers, e.g. They are created if one activates "Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Google" in Settings. And another: The "live" (i.e. BrowserMetrics-identifier.pma) file has the data shown in chrome:/...

Minimizing tabs you are not using is made easy by the free OneTab extension

You can use the extension like TabSuspender which will reduce the memory usage by Chrome upto 80% From the extension's doc: Automatically suspend, park, hibernate inactive tabs and save up to 80% of memory, reduce load on your device, battery and heat. I have 56 tabs open in my chrome at this moment, which consumes around 2 GB only as per Chrome's ...

Here is how I solved this on my Linux rig (Linux showed 3 options as your graphic above shows -- no password import option). I logged in from Windows computer and saw all 4 options. Then opened the Linux computer and activated Firefox Sync. My passwords were now available!

In Chrome 74 on Mac 10.14 and Windows 10, when I paste https://www.coolmath-games.com/sites/cmatgame/files/games/papasfreezeria_coolmath.swf into the URL bar, it immediately downloads. It asks if I want to keep the dangerous file, which saves the SWF. In Firefox 66 on Mac 10.14, when I paste the link into the URL bar, it presents "Run Adobe Flash". I can ...

The extension Zoom Page WE - Chrome Web Store let you switch between per-tab and per-site zooming. Once you just per-tab, then all the existing mechanisms for changing zoom only apply to the current tab. It also allows you to zoom the full page or just zoom text size. What it doesn't support, but I would like, is the ability to have per-site zooming and per-...

If you are in an enterprise environment, there is an ADMX template for Group Policy that has a setting to control the warnings. The description says that it's only for Domain Joined machines, but the templates typically manage the registry, so it may be that this can be tuned on standalone machines, too.

It seems that the only answer at this point since the recent change to Chrome is to clear all your browsing data. If you're like me this isn't a good option. I am not finding much else on this other than this thread with no answers on Google support. We probably need to upvote this issue more for Google to recognize that this is a problem. https://support....

It's a common issue but the Chromium team has always refused to provide a way to disable the inline autocomplete “feature”: "the code and UX complexity of this is nontrivial because inline autocompletion is the central design feature around which all other omnibox decisions are based." https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=667922#c8 ...

This worked for me. Select your account, then Syncing to (your email address), and Manage your Google Account, you can change your profile picture there. To get the new image to display on the task bar, select Syncing to again, and turn sync off and on.

If you want to test your web site at specific window sizes, open the developer tools and enable device mode. (It's the second icon from the left at the top of the developer tools; looks like two squares.) While in device mode, you can change the size of the viewport separately from the size of your browser window.

You should be able to turn it off in Settings. Go to the 3 dots in top right corner, then click settings and Autofill should be an option. If not, search for it in settings. It should allow you to turn it off for several things like addresses, payment information, etc.

Click on the icon directly to the right of the URL field. It looks like a star with three dashes on the right. When you hover over it, the tooltip reads "Hub (Favorites, reading list, books, history and downloads)." Your Favorites will appear first. Click on the icon to the right of the star icon. It looks like the Weather app's icon for "Windy." The ...

This is due to the hardware acceleration. Type chrome://flags in your chrome and disable the hardware-acceleration and relaunch the web brower. Boom, it's solved.

I have Windows 10 and I noticed when I switched from Edge to Chrome the lag went away. My keyboard lag was experienced when using email. I also use Linux on a different computer. I use Firefox and access the same mail box with no lag problems.

The steps outlined in the link below fix the issue or at least improves things: Basically open chrome://flags/ in chrome, search for the option "Omnibox Google Drive Document suggestions" and disable it. Why exactly this improves it is not really clear. Even then it only seems to work for certain sites for some reasons, at least here. https://www.ghacks....

Yes, just go to https://remotedesktop.google.com/headless and it will walk you through setting it up. If that doesn't work you can try these manual instructions for Windows: Install Chrome Remote Desktop on that machine Get an auth code (note the client ID is from chromium) Find the auth code from the code= parameter of the blank page you get navigated to. ...

Here's a solution is working for now (Mid 2019). Run this Javascript code in the console, or make it into a bookmarklet, or in Chrome Snippets: function contains(selector, text) { var elements = document.querySelectorAll(selector); return Array.prototype.filter.call(elements, function(element) { return RegExp(text).test(element.textContent);...

In case the HTTPS URL triggers a 301/302 redirection to an HTTP URL, the methods described above won't work since the browser immediately redirects to a non-secure page which doesn't include the padlock button (as pointed out by Alex in the comments). In this case, it's possible to work around this problem by disabling redirections for the website: Settings ...

Assuming you are talking about windows Chrome uses the windows default handler for the filetypes. Just search for "Default Apps" in your start menu and change the association there, and chrome will then call the correct file. I just did this on win10 for .torrent

Based on your comments, I tried running it from a different location, and It worked just fine. I suspect something has changed in your environment that is causing it to not work properly from this location. Multiple things come to mind, but leave some guesswork as to why you see the specific behavior that you do. My guess is one of a few things: You ...

Another workaround, somewhat more convenient: click on the Paste button in the ribbon bar, then Paste Special: And then choose Bitmap, instead of the default, HTML Format: I think this explains why it doesn't work by default. Outlook is trying to paste some HTML with an embedded image (binary data), which Chrome must be converting into a data: URI, or ...

There are two Chrome Extensions that I've tried: 1. GIF Scrubber - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gif-scrubber/gbdacbnhlfdlllckelpdkgeklfjfgcmp?hl=en 2.

Even though you should provide more details, this is a way to get a git repo into your snack: This image is not taken by me.

Also, edits made in the web will not be commited to git (you cannot create a commit from the site). ...

I've found one solution :') For me it was my headphones jack triggering playback – it was misreading my headphone jack input and playing videos, even in the background – so, on Chrome, I've disabled media key input: Type in chrome://flags. Find 'Hardware Media Key Handling' and disable it. This was on a Windows PC.

I have found a solution to the problem. It appears that Chrome in headless mode needs specific fonts installed for non-Latin characters. While this can be solved of course by installing a multitude of fonts, it would be a headache to install fonts for websites that support a lot of languages. Luckily there are modern font packs available that cover nearly ...

The issue, although not resolved, has been pin pointed. It is a separate issue from either of the two causes I originally surmised and lies with the developer of the software in use for the data base the QR codes are generated from. In three different cases, three different web pages are loaded. It is due to the specific information included, or in the case ...

After noticing that it doesnt only happen for the site info, but also for every popup that chrome has I found out that the main reason was a font problem. Seemingly it was caused by the advanced settings option "Hardware acceleration". Disabling this setting made it all visible again.

I found a Chrome extension (called EverSync) that can sync bookmarks. You'd have to install it for both Chrome profiles. Save your bookmarks from one profile, then restore them to your other browser profile. Seemed to work fine for me. The downside is you have to create an account with them.

TabMemFree will automatically suspend inactive tabs. You can determine how long before it suspends inactive tabs, with a minimum of 15 minutes. You can also instruct it to ignored pinned tabs.
