For flash/shockwave crashes go to about:plugins click "details" and disable the first one:

What 'bookmark button' are you referring to, the bookmark bar?

Problemas que ainda persistem:

- Ao abrir nova guia, o foco do cursor de digitação não vai para a barra de endereços (Obs.: E ao abrir a página do Google Search, o foco do cursor também não vai automaticamente para o campo de busca)

- Botão adicionar favorito (bookmark) não funciona no modo de navegação compacto (ao clicar, o navegador "quebra" instantaneamente)

Difícil acreditar que mesmo após relatarmos tantos bugs na versão anterior, muitos destes bugs ainda persistam nesta versão (versão que demorou a ser disponibilizada, visto a precariedade da versão anterior). Isso nos faz até especular a possibilidade de que estejam ocorrendo sérios problemas internos entre os desenvolvedores do Chrome. Será que todos os funcionários do Google estavam fazendo mutirão para consertar as linhas de transmissão da AT&T que deixaram nossa internet um lixo nestes últimos dias? Fica a questão no ar...

gotta say, im on canary so i expect bugs to hinder my experience, but flash single handedly causes 80% of my problems with all the shockwave crashes. problems like small print preview come and go, but flash never goes away

I was having frequent Shockwave/Flash crashes ever since I updated to 14.0.797.0, but it looks like they're gone now (knock on wood). Here's what I did:

1. Went to about:plugins
2. Checked the Shockwave plug-in version. Mine was 11.5.something and there was a link to "Download Critical Security Update"
3. Link took me to Adobe site to download the latest version which is 11.6.626.
4. After installing 11.6.626, I haven't had any Shockwave/Flash crashes

Hope this helps others!

I have a problem with Sync too, but with email sync.

Also the bookmark buttons "Edit" and "Done" kind of flicker when you mouseiver on them.

Is it me or the Dev Channel has become VERY unstable the last month? :(

Still having problems with LastPass extension under Chrome dev built. Many sites that used to autofill no longer do so. This is not uniform across all sites; some load just as they did before.

Lots of issues with links with hash tags doing a full navigation, keyboard short cuts not working, middle click opening a new tab as well as navigating the current one.

Also JS on JS heavy sites is behaving oddly. Goto any site that performs an action via setTimeout, make that tab the background for a few minutes then open it back up and every action called by setTimeout happens in rapid succession

Google Chrome crash. Can open new tab page, but going to any other page is impossible. After waiting a while, it self closes and says that Google Chrome crashed and it needs to relaunch, but it never works. After relaunch, History won't show up. Google Chrome version 12.0.742.112, Windows XP. And this is before and after re-install.
