Yea this happened to me, what you do is, re-apply the dev channel to beta:

and it should work.

Edit: Re-apply to dev channel not beta. :)

This bug is still present for me:

Issue 8653: CPU can go to 100% while scrolling a page using Flash

Thanks for fixing 5890. I thought that was kinda odd after I updated to 168. ;)

Debsuvra said...

I thought that ever-lasting 'Update Sever not available (error 3)' error is going to be addressed in this build. Alas, it's still there. :(

Mehdi said...

In this version, when I am in full screen and while pressing exit full screen on top it doesn't exit. Only Exits when you press F11.

@Mehdi, read the post before "reporting" ...

Operator said...

@ andre:

That's why it is a Known Issue ;). It hasn't been fixed yet.

Mehdi said...

@Beaver. That was lame of me. I didnt read it at all. =]

Revanth said...

Please modify the omnibox so that it also searches the URLs of bookmarks rather than just the name that usually appears in the bookmarks folder.


how to hide the icon of bookmark in the bookmark bar that like safari? That can make the bookmark not glaring by the colorful icon and reduce space.
