Im having MAJOR mouse/trackpad issues on my Cr48 following this update. The pointer seems to jump around on the screen shortly after releasing my hand from the pad as well as in mid navigation. Also ive noticed if I hover my finger over the pad, without touching it, I can clearly get a decent response from the pointer without ACTUALLY touching the pad. Is this a bug in this update, because my Cr48 was working like a charm beforehand, or is it possible this machine is just crapping out on me?

I am having the exact same trackpad as described above by Derick. Also on a Cr48.

Seems new chrome versions use lot more network data ? Can we minimize network data usage, for 3G data plans ?

I too am running a CR-48 and am having the same issues with the cursor jumping and being moved by a finger close to but not touching the trackpad.

New Samsung Chromebook- No Netflix love for me :(

I am still getting the browser freezing issue. Has not been fixed.

The freezing is happening quite often for me (Samsung Chromebook). I can't find anything that specifically triggers it. It's quite annoying, especially when I'm in the middle of taking notes.

MLR said...

Ditto on the freezing. No fix.

whiffer2 said...

Also having frequent freezing. No specific cause or triggering event noticed yet.

Is there a way to manually revert back to beta or stable channel?? Or do we have to wait for version number passing?

have serious flicker between screen and black going when i connect 2 monitors to my Chromebox ... both monitors connected via DP cables, one Samsung TV, other Dell 27 monitor.

Moment I unplug TV, everything goes back to normal.

I got frustrated with my Samsung Chromebook freezing all of the time so I switched it back to "stable". Hasn't frozen once since reverting. Freeze issue appears to be a known problem the devs are working on.

You can revert to stable via the USB stick recovery method. It is really simple but I wish there was an easier way to do it.

I've had to do the same as Mike, sticking with stable for the time being.
