Dev Update: Fix for tabs hanging after drag

Update: We've released 5.0.356.2 for Linux Dev channel users as well now.

We have released Google Chrome 5.0.356.2 to the Dev channel on Windows and Mac to fix an issue where dragging anything with your mouse would freeze the tab. See issue 38414.

Thanks guys! That was fast.

Ratko said...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

but that shade line still persist

Guillaume said...

Thank you, it works ! You're the best, GC Team ! :)

Christophe said...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

;-)

Johnny said...

yes the shade line is still there...damn...

nhnl said...

What about Linux?

naturefreak827 said...

I would like to suggest not showing pinned tabs in aero peek.

Richard said...

I cant even get Google Chrome to start =/ I have to use 4.1 D8 but im a DEV fan

Alistair said...

I agree with naturefreak. The aero peak with multiple instances does not look clean. And you lose the ability to minimize Chrome.

Wes said...

Fantastic, that was fast. As reported, the shaded line is still there. An interesting bug, for sure.

Philip Kahn said...

Shaded line is there, I can confirm.

Can anyone confirm that sometimes dragging around on http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2010/mar/17/cliff-stearns/stearns-says-house-democrats-trample-procedures-he/ causes the tab to crash? It's sporadic, but spending 30 secs or so trying to drag elements around or just generally screwing with the mouse makes the tab set crash.

Neo said...

What about linux guys? The tab becomes completely unresponsive.

P.S. Using 5.0.356.0 dev on Ubuntu 9.10

vhanla said...

When I preview the Desktop with the right-bottom button on Windows7 superbar, and then click to minimize all windows (also Win+D), the Chrome tabs appear as MDI child windows.

Richard said...

Neo said...

Li, Quanjia said...

i really don't like the tab pin issue in the taskbar. it's not like ie, at least show the title of tab pages. CHORME just show new tab, nothing more. very user unfriendly. I hope this can be fixed asap.

Li, Quanjia said...

Thank you very much, I was just planning to post this bug with dragging and you already fix it. Chrome is the best.

Ashiteka Shogun-San said...

Hi, I' using ver. 4.0249.98 as earlier versions crash on various sites as: Bing, Mediafire, Hotmail, etc. I don't know the reason, maybe because of installed extensions or themes; however ver. 4.0249.98 also crashes on loading mediafire and especially when several tabs does open.
what is the reason?
Thx!

Pinned tabs no longer magnify when hovering on them. I liked that feature. Thanks for a GREAT product!

TheBashar99 said...

Aero peek showing windows is nice. Showing tabs is horrible for a many tab user like myself (20 tabs right now).

What is it?

Tornadoes28 said...

In the Los Angeles Times website, as soon as I click on the comment form at the end of an article, I get the Aw, snap crash. There is something wrong with the new form features in Dev.

Gareth said...

this build is still really unstable, I get frequent tab crashes

also who asked for tab previews on the taskbar, I sure didn't

they don't even work most of the time

Purgatori said...

Great... but how about now fixing the bug in the Linux where visiting just about every page results in the 'aw snap' error message that can only be fixed by purging the deb, deleting the Chrome profile, and reinstalling -- only to have the error reappear after you exit and restart the browser. This bug has been filed by several people, and has been present for a long time in all channels; making Chrome virtually unusable for some.

shunyuan said...

I get crash 100% when I edit blog at http://www.nciku.com.tw/ and select characters with mouse.

This release is still unstable.

Joshua said...

The aero peek feature on windows 7 is nice for when you only have a few tabs open (< 6), but for avid tab users (I often have 20+), it's horrible to have to look through all the tab names to find the one you want. With the old system, you could easily switch back to the tab you were using last, and being able to do this still would be fantastic. Until then, back to firefox :)

Release still crashes on livejournal.com when use mouse wheel to open link in new tab or just clicking on links.

saiftheboss7 said...

The New Release Has A Boring Feature ! Every Tabs Need a new Chrome Window (In Taskbar of Windows 7) Also crashing on www.yahoo.com

Per Bylund said...

One minor bug: on mouseover on chrome icon in windows 7 taskbar, recently opened tabs are called "New Tab" rather than the title element of page. You might want to look into this.

bunnyhero said...

getting lots more tab crashes with this release. what's the best way to report these, or does chrome report tab crashes automatically?

thanks.

bunnyhero said...

i just switched back to the beta channel (on mac) because i was tired of the crashes, and i noticed that the beta (5.0.307.11) seems much faster than the dev channel. is the slowness of the dev channel version to be expected (e.g. debug build vs release)?

tboe said...

crashing all the time. please fix it asap...

Pele said...

'aw snap' is becoming more frequent now and I personally categorize this as a a high priority as it affects the ability to browse and discover bugs etc.

Win 7 Pro - 64bit user.

Thiago Gutenberg said...

First of All, Congratulations Chrome Team

Ok... Now, please implement smooth scrolling natively in Google Chrome, I think it should not be so hard ... I don't like to have many extensions installed, even more, to meet simple things like this.

About the taskbar support in Windows 7, there are still some problems ...

When you close a tab by thumbnails, all other thumbnails disappear, then you must click on Chrome icon again to display the thumbnails again, to then close another tab.

And it remains to implement the progress of the download on taskbar Chrome icon, as in IE.

Bye

Li, Quanjia said...

open several tabs, then hit ctrl+d in win 7, you will see so many "small square" tab which is just bad. hope the team can fix it in next release

Thiago Gutenberg said...

WIN(start)+D = messy thumbnails

Drew said...

reported my dev errors (frequent aw snaps) I'm about to go back to stable :(

Justin said...

could you guys possibly add a download status on the task bar icon? like on lame internet explorer

Tom Jacob said...

hanging after drag still there. trying to copy and paste but tab will hang as soon as draging is stopped

XDRAGON360 said...

I have no problems dragging though, what OS do you have?

Guillaume said...

On Google Docs, the cut/copy/paste function does not work for me anymore, even with CTRL-X, CTRL-C and CTRL-V... It is a problem of Google Chrome or Google Docs ? :/

Kyle said...

Crashes more than my alcoholic mother please fix

Operator said...

Regarding Aero Peek:

It shows me two windows, but only one tab ("New Tab") is open.

Pratik Thakkar said...

The Aw, snap page appears as soon as I double click on any text from mashable.com website pages. Not sure if these page crashes are only for mashable.com or for a particular action performed by me.

Fabio_Rulez said...

@Thiago: the dowload progress on the taskbar is already on the trunk and will land to dev soon.

another really exiting thing: pinned tab will be persistent between session, so you can choose a gruop of pinned tab to be load every time you open your browser... already on the trunk, soon on the dev.

great Google!

avp said...

Please make the old aero peek function an option. The new way is completely useless and confusing when you have a lot of tabs...

Nolan said...

Had to revert to BETA on this one. Crashes whenever I click anywhere on certain sites, and I hate the new Aero Peek functionality.

Neo said...

Where are the bookmarks actually stored in linux version?
I have screwed up my linux installation, have to format it now. So, i want to copy the bookmarks.

How do i do that?

molumen said...

looks like some changes to the forms interfere with the CTRL + RIGHT and CTRL + LEFT shortcuts:
normally the cursor jumps from one word to another (adding shift makes it possible to select whole words). Now instead of this behavior chrome just jumps between tabs. Very annoying..

XDRAGON360 said...

Chrome should have incognito TABS and windows so that users don't have to switch between windows.

Peter said...

Please revert the Aero Peek functionality in Win7 back to how it was. I appreciate the team working to full take advantage of Aero, but an option to disable the new behaviour would be welcome :) Also it'd be nice if the Chrome could use the Aero progress bar functionality to display progress of downloads on the taskbar. I'm sure it's already in the pipeline, but just thought I'd mention.

bellicose100xp said...

crashes a lot on wired.com, pretty much every time i hover over the share option below each article.

un énervé said...

sorry but on my ubuntu it is very buggy too
always showing the sad computer telling there is a mistake...grrrrrrr
I only have to select some text and text elsewhere in the page

Tornadoes28 said...

OK. Get movin here already. This release is really annoyingly unstable. Get a new release already please.

Ratko said...

It's surprising how much time stays this unstable and buggy release.

Juri said...

just a simple question, does the 5.0 dev version contains all the features and fixes the stable or beta release of 4.1 ???

joegrind said...

noob here....running W7/64. Is there a way to get flash (or Java...I have no idea)...working with this (or future versions?). Not getting any pictures on the front page of NYT or Huffington. Cleared cache....works fine in IE. Help?

Neo said...

@Joegrind: Is your JRE x64 or x86? IE has both x64 and x86 on W7/64, whereas chrome would require x86 JRE.

joegrind said...

@Neo...thanks for the quick response. Not sure which version I have....the websites came up under both 32 and 64 versions of IE. I just downloaded Java Version 6 Update 18...which according to the website is recommended for Chrome. I'm going to install and reboot and see if anything changes.
Back in 5.

Neo said...

@Joegrind: If IE x86 is displaying Java content, then Chrome should also. Otherwise, something else is wrong!

joegrind said...

@Neo: yeah...both IE show Java. Nothing on Chrome after the re-install of Java 6/18 and cache clear/ reboot.
Any suggestions?
Reinstall Chrome?

Neo said...

@Joegrind: I dont think re-installing Chrome would do it, but still give it a try. Try googling it. Never experienced it myself so no idea.

joegrind said...

FYI...did the reinstall and everything is working fine (except for the occasional Adobe 10 pop-ups). Thanks for the help though.

Tornadoes28 said...

@juri
It contains more features but it is less stable at times.

KyA said...

There is a bug on Google Chrome Dev 5.0.356.2. When I enter this site http://www.plurk.com/p/4bzfu4 , and press the link 【墾丁春浪,購票從速!】, then it will show problem message. Just only on this version. (Sorry that chinese word). Please test it, Thanks.

Cakalaky said...

XP Pro SP3, Highlighting words on a page; crashes that tab every time for me.

Abhay Bhaskar said...

Brandyn White said...
