Chrome engine crashing in all tabs

Post by DutchGemini » Fri Jan 31, 2014 11:13 am

Regularly I have the Chrome engine crashing. When this happens, *ALL* tabs crash and go purple. I understood that Chrome was designed to crash only the offending tab but not the entire browser session, but apparently this is not the case with the engine used in AB or it is caused by the design of AB.

Is there a chance that this issue is addressed and hopefully solved? I am sticking with AB because I use it since some time and in general I like it, because of the Autofills and some other fancy stuff and because I'm lazy installing Chrome on my office PC. I'm not a heavy user and usually not using more than 10 tabs.

I have recorded it and will remind anderson of this problem, but I'm not sure whether it can be completely fixed or not.

Here is another example:

I noted that it very often happens when the page takes some time to load and in the mean time I try to scroll or search [Ctrl+F] for text. This time it went kabum loading a PDF from NSA.GOV (yes, *THE* NSA) while another tab was downloading two 15Mb zips.

At the same time I see that all the tabs that I have "restored" via double-click are now duplicated "Chrome.exe" processes running that I can also see in the Chrome Task Manager (CTM).

It seems that AB looses contact to Chrome and when you restore a tab it creates a duplicate instead of hooking to the existing process, which continues to survive (and eat CPU and memory)

As soon as it happens again I'll post a screen shot of CTM with the duplicates (I already cleared the ghost ones)

The exact same thing happens to me as well.
