Images broken on Chromium

Post by DutchGemini » Thu Nov 24, 2016 10:57 am

With the latest Chromium engines it happens more and more often that images are not shown anymore. Usually this occurs while I'm browsing Google Images, and as soon as I open the preview I shortly get to see something then it turns black. Today I was using Bing and at some point I could not get any image anymore, not even on other tabs. Switching the tab to Firefox actually restored operation, switching back to Chromium things were still broken.

I have restarted AB to no avail, I can not get any image to show on any tab, even in this forum I have no images anymore. Only switching to Firefox does get the images back. Please advise.

I killed the "webkit" folder under C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\.default to no avail.

I also note that AB is not maintaining the Chromium setting that deals with images (Tools>Chrome>Options>Privacy>Content chrome://chrome/settings/content) and sets it back to "No" every time I restart a new tab.

This is really getting annoying and make the Chromium engine totally useless.

I have finally managed to get a working system after killing "conf.dat" and "conf.dat.vdt" under C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\.default.

Though it did restore image visualisation in Chromium, my nice configuration is f*cked up. Is there a way to recover?
