Took me two tries, but I was right regarding the timing of Chrome 44. This implies Chrome 45 landing in September (8th / 6 weeks or 15th / 7 weeks), with NPAPI support fully switched off.Another interesting note: Chrome 44, at least on Windows, has a new circle style in the "About Chrome" page where it checks for updates.
"Material design" spinning circle when a page loads :D
Disabling chrome://flags/#enable-new-profile-management does no longer work, resulting in an obnoxious box in the upper right corner next to the window controls (PC).Much preferred the old avatars in the upper left corner for faster identification and switching (pictures > words). Now I want this box gone, completely. Does anyone know how to?
@FlamboyantYou just need to right click on the Chrome shortcut > "Properties" > "Shortcut" then add --disable-new-avatar-menu to the right of the "Target" attribute. In my case it became "C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disable-new-avatar-menu
Maybe others can confirm too, but it looks like Chrome 44 no longer obeys Google Update Policy Configuration and defaults to allowing manual updates, and I assume automatic updates too https://crbug.com/512627
@FlamboyantRight click on the box to show all users.
Is there a way to get back the old search bar/address bar back? I find the new drop down list visually unappealing where the highlight just floats in the middle like that away from the sides.
I can get my avatars back in OS X by running this from a terminal window:open -a "Google Chrome.app" --args -disable-new-avatar-menu... but I don't understand why they keep making it harder for me to hang on to my cat and ninja. These avatars are far quicker visual queues of what account is open in a window than the text box.
I have Enterprise Chrome on small business network with Acrive Directory, where using Domain Policy. Our Domain Policy deny Chrome update (Worksations updates by another path).Previous version of Chrome (43.0.2357.134) works fine and shows Menu-About "Updates are disabled by administrator". A new version show Error 3: 0x80040154 -- system level... (Updates banned on a proxy)Is it a bug or a feature?
@Gordon Hawley, Terry JoyceThank you, that did the trick! Seems the flag is gone from the chrome://flags UI.@Matheus GadelhaThat work-around doesn't solve the problem of fast identification.
Where is Create shortcuts for apps and websites feature?? :OOn the browser toolbar, click the Chrome menu Chrome menu . Select Tools. Select Create application shortcuts. DISAPPEAR??? :/
Please bring back the option to use old avatar menu without command line arguments!!! Stop taking away features people like to use!
Another +1 for honoring the chrome:/flags values: Enable new profile management system: Disabled and/or Enable Google profile name and icon. I have both of those set to get back the old/better/more visual avatars, and the new version disables it.
@TSX BznessLooks like they changed it a bit.Go to "Chrome Menu Icon > More Tools > Add to Taskbar". This will obviously pin the page to your taskbar, but it will also add it to Chrome's apps page (found by right-clicking the bookmarks bar and selecting "Show apps shortcut", or entering "chrome://apps" into the URL bar). You will be given the option to "Open as Window". If you check that option, it will open it in a standalone window without the URL bar at the top; like it did with the old "Create Application Shortcut" feature. From the apps page, find your app icon and right-click it & choose "Create Shortcuts" if you wish, you may unpin the app from your taskbar, but if yo remove it from Chrome's Apps page, it will delete the shortcut as well.If you'd really prefer to have it the old way, you can create an application shortcut manually by doing the following:-Right-click on the desktop and go to "New > Shortcut".-In the section that says: "Type the location of the item", add the location of your Chrome.exe with quotes ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe") and then at the end of that, add a SPACE and then the following without parentheses (--app=YOUR URL HERE)As an example, this is what it would look like if you wanted to create an application shortcut for this page-"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --app=http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/2015/07/stable-channel-update_21.htmlThen name your shortcut and place it where you wish.
I suppose this is the last version of Chrome with NPAPI, and therefore Silverlight support; so it'll have to be my last use of Chrome too.In all the browsing I do, only three websites throw up the warning that Silverlight is used so support for that site will be ending in Chrome. The problem is the three sites those are.1 My bank - one of the four main banks here in the UK.2 Sky - the biggest subscription entertainment service here in the UK. I can't have a satellite dish on my house, so the only way I can get many of my favourite TV shows is internet streaming from Sky, and they use Silverlight and have stated they will NOT be changing, Chrome users should just change browser.2 Paypal.The three most important internet websites for me, all use Silverlight, all have said they are not changing, all will be unusable in Chrome.So I must pick a new browser and dump Chrome at the next update. Thanks a bunch, Google, for your arrogant practice of presuming everyone else on the web - including large, important companies - will jump to your tune. They're not.
@DavidGB I have not seen any usage of Silverlight on PayPal, so I'm not sure what problems you are having. I'm curious, though.
NPAPI plug-ins stopped working on version 42 and higher , according to Chrome help pages. So if the web sites you mention are working now , they will carry on working .
@DavidGB: Not sure Google deserves the blame for that and for Silverlight in particular though. Disabling NPAPI, while frustrating for some sites, is a good thing on the long term.And Silverlight will die, so any public-facing site relying on these tech will be forced to update, hopefully sooner rather than later.I've had the same problem as you on my Chromebook for some time with Orange TV: their web version uses Silverlight, which obviously doesn't work on a Chromebook. And nowadays, using any funky plugin tech to stream videos is just asking for troubles. We finally have decent web standards to support decent audio and video, so you should be able to have nitfy features using plugins AND base features using the a default implementation. Hopefully your bank, Sky, Orange and others will see the light soon. In the meantime, I for one will keep using Chrome and stop using THEIR services...
Just installed latest Chrome Version 44.0.2403.89 m and now my once accessible websites are tryign to load https:// scripts and stylesheets that are not served on SSL. ANy thoughts my friends?http://demo.myfoodpress.com is a normal http:// site, but getting https:// errors after update.Regards,Michael
Can you make a Blogger tag for "Browser" to go with the blog tag "Chrome OS"?We are trying to keep up only on Stable updates for the Browser (not Chrome OS) and we want to try to scrape the RSS feed.Or is there a better way we should be doing this? Thanks
Seems like new version doesn't work with max-width attribute in procents, only px. I notice this after today update
@TSX Bzness: Chrome menu > More tools > Add to desktop... not works to you?
@Flamboyant, Gordon Hawley--disable-new-avatar-menu worked for me, but it took me a while to figure out that I needed to also close Google Chrome by going to the lower right hand corner as it was running in the background.
@Michael Gamble, we're having the exact same problem. Running several WordPress websites that are now redirecting (some scripts) to https. Very strange habit, can't find the cause. Does anyone know where this is comming from and/or what we can do to fix this?
@Michael Gamble and others that are experiencing this issue, apperantly this is a beta-bug that hasn't been fixed: https://spunmonkey.design/chrome-beta-44-causing-problems-with-httpsssl/.
This update completely breaks Chrome.Adios Chrome.
Thank you very much, @Gordon Hawley! The --disable-new-avatar-menu worked beautifully. No idea why Google keeps taking away the icon...
Currently the HTTP protocol is not transferred correctly. In some cases, I get an 500 Internal Server Error. However, the sites works fine in other browsers.
I'm having the same problem as Chrishe Bolze, our production site is unaccessible with this version of Chrome because of it. Is there a workaround for this, or will there be a quick update to fix this problem?
Just installed latest Chrome Version 44.0.2403.89 m and now my once accessible websites are trying to load https:// scripts and stylesheets that are not served on SSL.I have the same problemPlease fix this
I have same issues with alot of my customers websites, that they have HTTPS error (wordpress / woocommerce), and they think website is hacked, or I have made error, or our server is causing troubles.It's one of the worst google chrome updates I have ever seen, and don't understand how something like this can happend..Glad that there is alternatives, and inform my customers to change browser for unknown time..Fix this issues fast please..
Same issues with scripts and CSS files, Chrome attempts to load via HTTPS.Our Wordpress/Woocommerce site stopped working with Chrome 44.x.Very embarrassing!Please fix this ASAP.
Why is the avatar menu being repeatedly blocked by these ugly account names in a grey button?The avatars are so much better for account switching as it's very easy to not realise which account you're on with simple text that all looks the same!On OSX it feels like a very looong winded solution to make sure the Dock app always opens with the flag: -disable-new-avatar-menu... Why has this option been removed from about//flags? It makes no sense!+9, please stop removing valuable features!
RE: New Avatar Menu - looks like it's a bug:https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=499205I also want my avatars back to my menu, not the ugly buttons with the names. Terrible UX to switch in between profiles (I use 4: 2 work, 1 personal, 1 student)!
Same issue with privacy X https on some sites- particularly those with woocommerce. V annoying- I hate using other browsers. please fix google- most of Ireland use you!
Solution I found for WordPress + Woocommerce: upgrade to the latest Woocommerce plugin (2.3.12+), and it's back to normal.
I would think the vast majority of users of chrome use it on their own PC. So why force that user profile thing on everyone, with no easy way to remove it. I know my own name, I don't need chrome to display it.I found --disable-new-avatar-menu so I'm now using that - but this thing should be really easy to disable (i.e. in options not hidden as a command line argument or chrome:flags setting).
Same issue with a few of my sites forcing https in scripts and stylesheets.PLEASE FIX ASAP.
Hello,Everyone who has issue with WordPress/Woocommerce sites breaks down with mixed content issue please set $_SERVER['HTTPS'] = false; in functions.php of theme.ThanksRaja | www.wibits.com
Please bring back profile icons!!!!! new profile manager is shit and full of UX bugs Old way:1. click icon2. click profileNew way - improved way by autistic people:1. click open windows2. open swichprofile ( 2 or more clicks )3. resize window ( I have yes 8 profiles) 4. click to profileFIX FIX FIX!!! and never go to production with shit you have no idea what it is for.
TO ANYBODY EXPERIENCING ISSUES WITH THE SSL (https) + WORDPRESS ISSUE:Update your Woocommerce plugin to the latest version, it will fix the problem.
Dear @Unknown; @Romário Oliveira, Thanks a lot =) I like standalone shortcut :3
Print is broken (Save to PDF)When I print a document (save to pdf) the resultant PDF is nor readable by Adobe Reader X. I get error ...(129)Any ideas? Print seems to be the poor forgotten orphan child of Chrome. First Print to Paper is broken now Print to pdf is broken.Any ideas about a fix>
New tab sometimes crashes... not always but sometimes..
To anyone having issues with loading page resources in HTTPS:I've noticed that the CGI environment variable "HTTPS" set to on when using https in other browsers. When using chrome after this update https is now set to 1You should take this into account to fix resources loading incorrectly when they should be loading with https
See this: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=513574
Are you aware of the "He's Dead Jim" crashing and Chrome App crashes going on with what looks to be certain Intel Haswell CPUs? Mine is 4690k and many others over at https://groups.google.com/a/googleproductforums.com/d/msgid/chrome/0df94b4e-cb6e-46d3-a2a9-b3f36f452df6%40googleproductforums.com are experiencing this issue.There are other threads there with the same problem all with Haswell CPUs. All started with this update.
chrome just upgraded to "44.0.2403.107 m". How can I remove my name from the top right corner of the browser. It's annoying; i don't need it.if this won't be fixed, can we roll back to the previous chrome version ? if not, will remove chrome and use FireFox.. thx.
Google should be ashamed for taking away functions from the chrome:flags. If users want new profile system they keep it - but if theydo not want it the flag is no longer available. WTF! Google is becoming evil! First the stupid npapi drop support and now this. hey google - listen - I DO NOT WANT THE DAMN USER BOX ON RIGHT SIDE OF MY BROWSER. It uses up previous real estate since I routinely have 20 tabs runningOnce Chrome drops npapi, I will switch to Opera or firefox
Big boo boo. The new profile management flag kicked in and there's no way it honors the flag. I disabled this earlier this year as I prefer icons/avatars (pictures) than words. I costs me several thousand seconds a day of delay and inefficiency when I have to read this profile name, instead of a sub-nanosecond recognition of the avatar.
Bring back the Created Shortcut under ToolsWhy did you removed the Create Shortcut?Please bring it back,., :) Thank you
Has anybody noticed that the ability to auto-open .jnlp files is gone? I can't seem to get that feature to work. I tested it with .jpeg files and it worked fine, but the option is just grayed out with .jnlp's now. I glanced through the flags and didn't see anything in there to turn on.
Yes! Super annoying getting the stupid keep or discard warning every single time I click a jnlp file. Come on, why can't I auto open these anymore?
Yes soccerdude! I noticed it too.... Why the fuck I have to confirm that I want to open a .jnlp file??I want always to open it automatically.
Latest version of Chrome keep crashing while opening new tabshttps://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/TO8-9P_AQvcI do hope they plan to fix this soon,
