like what Richard said, when i have the Chrome application pinned to the Windows 7 Taskbar, upon opening the program, another chrome icon appears rather than the taskbar button becoming the open program button.

On Windows 7, look into the AppId setting code. The Window AppId is different from the app id stored in the shortcut icons, thereby creating a different icon on the taskbar for the window that the shortcut already present.

Do the Linux builds automatically update (Using Ubuntu 9.10)?

@ Soum

So is this considered a bug? I personally don't like it cluttering my taskbar.

i hate this windows 7 taskbar issue.

@Allstair
Yes, this is a bug (I believe a regression), as it creates more two instances of the icon in the Win7 taskbar - one two launch the window and another one to switch to it - when only one would suffice.

Hi everyone, the Windows 7 task bar issue was resolved but it didn't make it to the dev channel, hopefully next dev channel update it would be pushed.

THERE IS ONE THING THAT YOU REALLY NEED TO THINK ABOUT AND THAT IS BETTER SUPPORT FOR RTL LANGUGES MUCH OF THE ADDONS WERE DESIGN FOR TRL SO IF THE BROWSER IS USING RTL VERSION THIS ADDONS ARE DISPLAY ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN AND MOST OF IT IS HIDDEN AND UNUSABLE SO PLEASE FIX IT NOW BEFORE YOU RELEASE A STABLE VERSION AND THANKS IN ADVANCE.

i also have window 7 Taskbar pinning problem. when i remove original chrome then it shows one icon. but when i launch chrome from it's default shortcut it shows two icons

10:45 PM, December 11, 2009  
Blogger byronface said...

i did what Tony suggested: to unpin, then open chrome, then right click THAT taskbar button and re-pin. it works..

BUT.. you lose the jump list features to be able to open an incognito window, etc.

hi, this "Use SSE2 optimizations in Skia" means that chromium wont run on non-SSE2 CPU?

Like byronface said, I unpinned and re-pinned and it works fine now, however, there is no longer any of the old Right-Click Options on the icon. I noticed that my Firefox icon doesn't have any Right-Click options either

Blogger Bram said...

Indeed, when you re-pin chrome on the taskbar, you'll have only one icon instead of 2. But I had the same problem here with Internet Explorer and I did the same trick, and that works too. Can anyone tell me if Chrome is really the cause of this? (I don't use frame btw)

User Scripts seems not working after update. Even a simple alert("abc") is not shown on page load anymore.

"--enable-user-scripts" was re-added to shortcut path, still no success.

Since this update, I'm unable to get Gmail working fully with Chrome under Win7. After several minutes, I get the error window stating, "Some Gmail features have failed to load due to an Internet connectivity problem", however it works perfectly fine under Firefox on the same machine, and I'm not noticing any other connection issues. I've toggled the modem, cleared my cache several times, but to no avail.

Is anyone else experiencing anything similar?

@alex dante,
As of 4.0.266.0, I have the same issue. Am running XP Pro SP3. On average about 10 seconds after clicking on a conversation, or accessing the contacts list I get the same error message. As the error appears, the page loads.

Blogger Mohamed Mansour said...

@Aviramof: Concerning RTL Extensions, I submitted a patch that addresses that and hopefully by the next update it will be working.

@everyone: If you repin Chrome on the taskbar, you will not see it duplicated anymore. When I state repin, you "remove" the currently pinned chrome and pin it again.

@Handycam: I believe it is enabled again (or very very soon)

On XP SP3, I can't hardly keep chrome open. It just crashes so often it hurts. Anyone experiencing the same?

I'm also having this issue with the Taskbar on Windows 7.

As byronface said, if you unpin and then repin chrome, you lose the jump list features...

Looking at "%appdata%\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar" you can see the links pinned at the taskbar. Comparing both links, the new one doesn't have the "Access the Internet" comment. Removing it made both links merge, but I lost the jump list also.

[r33376] Copying an image from a web page and pasting into Gmail now works (Issue: 27708)

This worked in the previous release, now the tabs won't change. Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but maybe it will get reported to the right place.

on facebook, when you talk to someone on chat and you refresh the page or you hit "Home" or any facebook link, there are times that the chat window disappears. Can anyone else verify that? sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't.

I have some problems with this build and also with previous one... sometimes, like once in 2 - 3 days, all my extensions are disappearing. I'd also want to add that an OPEN button would be very helpful when downloading files, and also, like YuriPC said a "reload image" option on the right click mouse button would be good to.
