With this new update the buttons next to the omnibox are rendered useless. For example Adblock plus with element hiding helper. Normally clicking on the button would give you a list of options, mainly something like
remove element" or something like that. Now it is just a blank popup bubble. Is there any way to uninstall the latest update?

I agree with Ruben, buttons next to omnibox are useless.
Something strange is happening with post on facebook.
When I click the picture, there comes picture and comments squeezed to the top, post background is from the top to bottom of the screen. Looks ugly.
And I beg you, remove this annoyong "import bookmarks" bar, when opening new tab. Or just give option to hide this thing.
People on all chrome forums write about this.
