What is the little plus (+) button that is on the omnibar? Clicking on it doesn't seem to do anything.

Not able to select other location for a new bookmark, drop down menu that appears after Ctrl+D is not showing other folders.

It looks like the Recently Closed menu was removed from the new tab screen. Can it be restored? I use this feature all the time, and it's much more convenient than using the History menu (And can the link to the Web Store at the bottom of the new tab page be removed. It's extraneous).

You can added your Toolbar Buttons back from the extension list.

I too have the "+" instead of the Bookmark Icon.

I, too, would rather not lose the Recently Closed feature on the New Tab Page. I'm hoping this was inadvertently removed and will be returned soon.

To those who have the weird + replacing your extensions: Disable the "Action Box" experiment in about:flags. You probably enabled it weeks ago when it did nothing and forgot about it, well surprise, it's doing something now, but it doesn't seem to be complete so it's not very useful at the moment.

Also not sure why my previous comment isn't showing up, but you might be able to fix recently closed not showing up (it's just a bug don't worry) by disabling "Other devices" from about:flags.

Problem with tooltips not showing in win7

Blogger Ricky Cain said...

I know this is the wrong version to post in since I am on canary but for the past 5 days and 5 different versions Version 21.0.1150.0 canary

The radio buttons if selected or changed will freeze a webpage. So much so that they will not work ever. Please fix

Lots of crashes for me on Linux Mint Debian 64bit. They happen randomly but only when I'm opening or closing a tab or clicking on a link or changing tabs or minimizing or restoring the window. Hope the issue gets fixed in the next version.

Blogger pantherqin said...

Yes, a lot of crashes for Ubuntu 1204. It happens randomly when I was trying to close a single tab. (never minimizing nor restoring, so I wouldn't know if it would cause error too)
Please fix it asap.
