Running Ubuntu 11.04, 64 bit, and Chromium 12.0.
When I try to load certain websites (including NYT, all of the Lifehacker/Gawker/Gizmodo network, and some random websites), Chromium and Chrome just crash, giving me the "Aw, snap!" page. When I run chromium-browser through the terminal, going to the NYT page gives
Going to Lifehacker or Gizmodo or one of those sites givesCode:ERROR: unable to open font '6101'
Loading Gawker gives both the NYT error and the Lifehacker error.Code:*** NSPlugin Viewer *** WARNING: unhandled variable 18 (<unknown variable>) in NPN_GetValue()
These websites work fine in Firefox, however.
I'm not sure if this is caused by Flash, although that usually gives me problems. Uninstalling Flash doesn't help, and nor does disabling it. Disabling any of the plugins or extensions, for that matter, doesn't help. Google suggested creating a new profile by deleting/renaming the ~/.config/chromium/Default/ directory.
Interestingly, sometimes I can get into the Gawker network through Gawker or Gizmodo, through which I can load the other websites in the network, such as Lifehacker. Reading an article causes the website to crash, however, as does switching to the Blog View, sometimes.
So... I'm not really sure what to do except move to Firefox, but I love Chrome's omnibar :/ Any help is appreciated.
