Two finger swipe to the left to jump back to prior page still crashes the browser window 100% of the time. Thanks for fixing the scrolling action relate to the hidden launch bar.

Hm. It just showed up on my 1st gen Samsung ("except Samsung Chromebooks")... Also the swipe back a page Scott is talking about does not seem top be an issue for me.

the new fullscreen isn't new since this update. this update did reset the feature so I had to reactivate it from flags.

My apologies. I just tried the two finger swipe in an incognito window and it worked perfectly. It must be an issue with an extension. If I figure it which one, I'll post a reply here.
