Please fix the issue with http auth passwords not being saved as well as favicons not being displayed on tabs. These issues have been around forever

Wes said...

I assume https passwords are not saved on purpose. And yeah, favicons have been kind of buggy for some time.

Quite honestly though, I'm mostly waiting for saved password/cookie sync. I want to be logged in to the same sites across multiple browser sessions.

2 weeks without a dev update? It's weird actually.

Speaking of Chrome's search engines, in Windows, when clicking the Name tab, can the list of search engines listed in alphabetical order stay as?

I have 15 search engines in Chrome and like having them listed alphabetically (A-Z).

And speaking of passwords, why won't Chrome remember my password when commenting here?

Blah, still totally broken on Mac. Only few webpages load, most result in a hung tab. If I load Gmail it makes the entire browser completely unstable and ALL pages start hanging.

I have restarted the browser countless times and its still fucked up.

Version 6.0.472.55 won't open in windows 7 after the update, unless you press "open new window" or "new incognito window" in the jump list.

Im having problems with printing PDF's
When I try to print a pfd with them opening in the browser the print job hangs/fails, but if I change setting so PDF's open in a separate window they print fine?
Been happening since the last three updates?

lostchild said...

Please fix the problem with the menu's not showing up at all when accessing CUCM(Cisco Unified Call manager) web pages.
This forces me to use IE/Firefox.
I can't believe a task as simple as just show menu items can't be fixed in such a long time.
I know this has been reported a few times.

GMAIL is broken after this update. The browser just hangs and requires a shutdown and restart of Chrome.

Can someone remove the Other Bookmarks text from the bookmarks toolbar and leave there only the folder icon? Or a star icon or anything that doesn’t take so much horizontal space?

kost said...

In windose 7 after the update is not chrome does not start from the Quick Launch toolbar. Reaction no. You can run only through the context menu -> new window. It is not convenient, please fix it soon.

Mark Bishop said...

Chrome appears to have done an auto update. The new version is resulting in really tiny type - I have to zoom in to view each page properly. Is there any way to fix this? Please email me if you are involved in Google Chrome and know how this can be resolved. The version is 6.0.472.55 and I'm using Windows 7 Professional on a Sony Vaio VPCZ1 laptop.

Another issue, when I close a pinned tab it disappears, whereas before this release it grays out the tab and when I click on it it would reload. Very annoying as I had several closed pinned tabs.......

One Stock said...

Ever since the update to 6.0.472.55, my Facebook tabs reload themselves at arbitrary intervals all the time, several times per hour, up to 3-4 times at once.

Boookmarks cannot be moved by the icon anymore, must drag the text description line.

No 'Report a bug' in menu anymore? So how are we supposed to make reports of these newly introduced 'features'.

Larry said...

Why did you remove the stop load X that appeared after the address field while a page was loading? Why does cntl+B for the bookmarks now require cntl+shift+B? This is not and improvement

martin said...

Is possible manages the way how the browser "auto complete" the text input in the adress field (Ctrl+enter) - by defaut with "www." and ".com" - I need to change it to "www." and ".cz")

Thanks o lot!

Surfing ftp:// URLs Chrome ignores proxy settings and tries to go directly to remote sites

Alan said...

Jason, you should just disable comments on this blog because clearly people can't read, and I see very few constructive contributions here, just a LOT of people not reading the "please submit a bug" link, lol!

I'm running Google Chrome on an iMac with Snow Leopard. When I go up the upper left to click on "Quit Google Chrome," the Chrome windows disappear, but Chrome doesn't actually shut down. I have to force quit it or I cannot shut down my iMac.

What gives?

@One Stock
Yeah, the same thing is happening to me too...

What happened to the functionality of pined tabs? I used to be able to close a pinned tab to free up resources, but the tab would remain up there for faster-than-bookmark opening. Now, if you close a pinned tab, it closes completely. Whats the point of a pinned tab now? Make the tab smaller? Pinned tabs were great for me at work for those heavy pages that I need to open every 20 minutes, where bookmarks were ideal for stuff like eBay and YouTube and stuff.
