Why no support for HP models?

Tom Rodman said...

Exactly... It's as if they forgot about the HPs?

There's a delay in wifi connecting when coming out of sleep. Before as soon as I opened my Samsung Chromebook it would connect to wifi immediately. Now since this update it takes a few seconds or so after opening before it actually connects to wifi.

Can't input password once sign out. Acer c710. Lost count how many times done the power wash after the stable channel update. Not impressed.

It is good article. It gives good information about Chrome a search engine. It is helpful for those who use internet much but did not had enough information.

I have a Jenkins web site that does not render properly since I upgraded from version 35 to 36:

There seems to be a problem with this font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, sans serif
because if I change to another one, rendering is OK.

Do you have idea where the problem could come from?

For information, I am using Mac OS X Maverick.

No update for the Samsung Chromebox?

JoAnn said...

I just got this update this morning (36.0.1985.126) on my HP11. Why is everyone whining that it's not on HP?

JayBee said...

This update is horrid. When/if I dont get a white screen when loading a webpage it takes twice as long as previous version. I have to go into aa text box multiple times to get the keyboard to come up.

Main issue is it stops loading pages and freezes on a blank screen. The only way to fix it is by starting again in a new tab.

Using an s3. Android version 4.3

The ability to disable the TouchPad would be a welcomed addition. Have been watching releases for this feature for months. Don't imagine a simple enable/disable toggle in the settings menu would be that hard to add.

lysa said...

Apparently the touch pad can be disabled because after the update my touch pad and keyboard are not working.

This is a serious problem.I hope there a fix.

Richard Mallender said...

Just took what I assume was this update for my Samsung Chromebox and the mouse is now rendered so unresponsive as to be useless, only updating the pointer position ones every few seconds.
Urgent fix needed.

Erika said...

My Samsung Chromebook just updated itself. The pointer got very slow. 50% of my changes in the last 3 weeks disappeared... I have apps and extensions available again which were deleted weeks ago, the newly installed ones are missing...
I was struggling so hard to get myself up to speed with my Chromebook and with this update all my work is gone... very unhappy and disappointed.

My HP Pavilion is having SO MANY issues with Chrome. This was always my go to browser but now, auto updates don't seem to happen, nothing seems to acknowledge the Flash Player that Chrome says is auto updated and often I use websites and bits of the pages are missing. This is especially annoying when I use my e-books for school and I can't read it because the majority of the page will not display. Not happy with Chrome any more :(

Why is the update not showing on my HP Chromebook 14?
