Chrome browser stops working after minute of use


I had problems with Google Chrome when I first installed it.  The problem turned out to be that it was synching everything, including apps and extensions, with my other Chrome installations on a Windows laptop and mobile devices.  I uninstalled and reinstalled it, then selected "Choose what to sync" rather than "Synch everything" and deselected Apps and Extensions.  It now works perfectly.

Incidentally, I installed it by dowloading the debian package from Google (link on the Google search page in Firefox) and launching it to the Package Installer without recourse to the Terminal.

Problem solved. I changed to chromium-browser and start it, with password store option like this: /usr/bin/chromium-browser --password-store=basic
Then it will not crash immediatelly.

How did you install chrome, what source etc (if you can simply link to the file/version). Can you try running it from a terminal and copy the entire output from the terminal and place on a "pastebin" like service or preferably for us.

Chrome browser crashes all the time, with different errors. Like this:] Gtk: gtk_widget_size_allocate(): attempt to allocate widget with width -2147483648 and height 1019
opt/google/chrome/chrome: /build/buildd/cairo-1.10.2/src/cairo-surface.c:1287: cairo_surface_set_device_offset: Assertion `status == CAIRO_STATUS_SUCCESS' failed.
What can I do, except to use firefox browser?
