  • Google chrome issues

    I use Google Chrome, and I love it. I used to be a real Firefox enthusiast, but Chrome has a lot of great features. I use it on two different computers, and on one of the computers I often find that certain webpages don't load right, and I have to empty my cache (by going into tools->options->under the hood->clear browsing data). Types of pages that are affected include Gmail (funny enough), Facebook, weather.com, and youtube. Somehow after some Google searching I discovered that clearing my cache could fix the problem. It still gets frustrating because I end up having to clear it several times a day.

    Based on some of the text that appears when the pages load funny, I get a feeling that flash or Java somehow starts not loading right, and clearing the cache fixes the problem. Could there be any possible permanent fix? When I first started having the problem, I tried completely uninstalling Chrome, but no success :-(

    What you mean by checking the DNP setting? Where do I do that, and what do I check for?

          Can you post a screenshot of, say, YouTube loading incorrectly?

          I just learned how to manually add keyboard shortcuts to the Vrome extension, so now I'm using Chrome, too. (On Linux in Beta.)

            Sure! It only took a couple of hours after getting home for Chrome to start acting up. I'm posting a screenshot of youtube at the point when I need to clear my cache.

              I'm not having any problems with that video. Are you using the HTML5 viewer or Flash?

                Yeah, once I clear my cache, my problems are solved for a little while... I just end up having to clear the cache at least a few times a day. I believe I'm using flash, but how do I know which one I'm using?

                Sorry, posted under a different name.

                    I found that Google chrome ran extremely slowly in Vista 64-bit but absolutely flies in XP and Windows 7

Other pages that begin to load incorrectly are Gmail, Facebook, CNN.com, and weather.com. I'm sure there could be others, but those are the ones I have noticed. Is there really not a setting somewhere that could have been messed up by mistake? After a lot of Internet searching, I still haven't gotten anywhere.

                        Have you tried Tools > Options > Under the Hood and uncheck the setting that says “Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance.” This might help out.

                          I hadn't tried that, but I've unchecked it now and I'll see if the problems go away! Thanks for the input.
