    chromium keeps crashing

    Hey guys:

    Noob here, I have no idea where to look for error codes for this problem. My chromium browser is unstable and I would like to know why and fix it. Could someone send me off in the right direction?

    thanks in advance

    No Help? I know if it crashes and closes I can send an error report, but most of the time it just locks up and forces me to restart or just displays the "aw snap" screen. Considering I don't have any ad-ons or antivirus I think it is something Ubuntu related causing it to crash

    Re: chromium keeps crashing

    I was experiencing the same thing with Chromium!

    I'd start the browser, go to a few sites and usually within five minutes, it would crash and I had to power-cycle my computer to recover.

    I got so frustrated that I eventually removed Chromium and went back to Firefox. That was about a week ago and I haven't had one crash since.

    Start the browser using the console, and when it does lock up you should be able to see some error in the console. One could also check the error logs to see what has been producing the crash.

    You may also consider making a new profile as described here: http://support.google.com/chrome/bin...&answer=142059

    Since those instructions are for Chrome and you're using Chromium, your profile will be in ~/.config/chromium.

    Won't return anything if OP is using Chromium.
