Still iTunes links don't work. Will you ever fix this?
So, about:labs is coming to the beta channel when it switches to 7?
chrome crashes most of the time when I access this website: http://www.investors.com/Hope can be fixed.
Canary is having some serious page painting issues. It won't update until the browser window is resized.
I encountered a very serious bug in this google chrome 6.0.472.59 released. There are times my mouse freezes, unable to click or highlight text, closes tabs in chrome. Tried to reboot my PC but still unable to click properly or highlight text using my mouse even in my windows desktop. I thought my mouse was broken. But when I terminated the GoogleCrashhandler.exe, my mouse works properly... This is a serious problem especially to those users who are not computer savvy.
could this release be why chrome is not working right? i can't bookmark pages or use standard gmail. does anybody ever actually help you? does chrome or google read this stuff? never thought internet explorer would look good again.....
Chrome for mac STILL doesn't auto-update. If you go to about it doesn't show that there is a newer version either.
Does Microsoft Vulnerability Research get any of the bounty money for their bugs?
Flash player 64bit preview 1 for windows is out, when can we expect 64bit Chrome for windows? :)
Once again, several times in a row, it doesn't autoupdate. Can't believe that Google wouldn't have server capacity for serving up these updates -- which was given as a previous excuse.
Hi,My Chrome for Mac is at version 6.0.472.55 and it claims to be up to date, which doesn't seem to be true.Something wrong with the checking for updates?Pete
Are these updates delivered to users automatically, or is there something to download?
Info related to Update from another post by pkasting - Just because a release has been made available on a channel does not mean we immediately trigger updates on all clients. There are three reasons a client won't pick up an update instantly:(1) The client only checks for an update periodically.(2) We purposefully rate-limit updates for reasons like limiting server load, testing a release on a narrower population so we can abort the rollout with minimal damage if an unexpected glitch appears, etc.(3) Once an update is installed Chrome needs to be restarted before it will take effect.The update system is working as designed.
Manish,Again the same old, tedious excuses for failure to auto-update:1) Your excuse: client only checks periodically. Our experience: If you click on About Chrome, it's tells us it's manually checking for an update and then says there isn't one.2) Your excuse: Server load. Gee for a server intensive company, it's amazing than you have a server load problem that exceeds Microsoft autoupdate -- which always works if you resort to manual update queries.3) Your excuse: Needs to be restarted. Well, so do most updates. The problem is NOT even getting the update in first place to do a restart.If it's working as designed, it ain't working.
@Victor - It's the info provided by Google folks.. I have just pasted the info from another post..
I've lost the view history and erase history functions and the book mark save has changed. Love google but its frustrating to have it change just when you've got it down right!
Serious mouse issues dittoed here. I can't highlight things, and right-clicking is really messed up. What's going on??
I am very upset about the regression of the collapsed extensions. They used to be collated under a drop down menu, and now are back to being spread out. i do not like this.
@Manish (or to some Google folks really) fair enough. However, how well known these security problems are now to the bad guys? I mean how much more information are they getting from from this Changelog that wasn't available earlier.At least it makes me feel less safer than before as I know know there are fixes available that I just can't get.Pete
Still maximum with of the bookmark list is 800px which is way to much. 400-500px would be much more appropriate.Others things look ok, good job ;)
@Pete: Not much. There are any number of ways that those bugs could have been triggered, but figuring out how is very difficult. Just knowing it can be done does not make it any easier to do it. Combined with the fact that the bugs which are linked to within this post are only accessible to those who need to see them (at least until most users have updated to the latest version), and it's unlikely that anything in this post will hurt users or help the bad guys. ;-)
Nice to imagine that security exploits aren't easy. Then by logic, why patch them at all?Chrome is like a wonderful, high performance sports car where workers occasionally forget to put in seat belts and air bags -- by bungling the auto-update.
@Victor: I didn't say they were impossible. Just like you can miss a small nick in a windshield and it can turn into a large crack, so can anyone notice that small nick and tap it with a hammer to make a large crack. But Chrome (supposedly) is so polished that it's difficult to see any nicks, even if they are there, and it's reinforced so that if someone taps on the nick, the whole windshield won't break and allow stuff in/out. (yay, analogies)If anyone knows how to exploit those bugs, then they don't need this blog for information on how to exploit them; they're experts, just like the people who created the browser, and know what they're doing (or got really lucky when browsing through the code).
wow, I thought I was crazy with my mouse pointer not working over the last month or so...thanks for the tip on crashhandler..
on 17 Sep used chrome to access 2 websites on Yahoo (shine.yahoo.com/channel/food/what-s-fresh...) and one other I can't recall) -- MacAfee detected a trojan (Hiloti.gen.g) Since then I have two error messags when Windows Vista starts -- missing .dll files (Googled them -- no known dlls). WTFO? Thnx for the vulnerabilities, Google Chrome.
@Bob: Trojans can't do anything to you unless you execute them yourself. Once McAfee detected the trojan, it was already past the browser and on your computer, so there wasn't anything Chrome could have done to prevent it from attacking your computer in the first place. You should scan any file you download before opening, running, or viewing it, regardless of what browser you use. If McAfee failed to detect the malicious file before it was executed, so you should go complain to them. (but if you aren't using their real-time scanner, they'll probably tell you the same thing I did, and maybe advertise their other products).Anyway, you should be able to restore any missing dlls by inserting your Windows install disc and running Windows's built-in repair utility.
