Top Issues Fixed

  • Google Chrome sometimes hangs when using a site with Gears offline data enabled.
  • If you don't have Adobe Flash installed, Google Chrome shows a message with a link to install Flash. The installer would get downloaded, but failed to install Flash. (Issue 4346)
  • Sometimes you had to restart Google Chrome twice after an update to get the new version. (Issue 4316)
  • Google Chrome was preventing pop-up windows from opening Javascript alert messages. This broke some sites that open forms in new windows and use Javscript alert() to notify you about form errors. (Issue 4158)
  • Folders you add to the bookmarks bar were not always showing up in the folder list of the Add bookmark dialog. (Issue 766)
  • Potential fix for Google Chrome crashing on Windows XP 64-bit when you open the Options dialog. (Issue 49)
