chrome crashes

Recommended Posts

Hello,

since yesterday chrome started crashing frequently when trying to save any type of file. First presumed chrome was having some problem here but it turned out that switching off the exploit protection fixed the issue.

 

Anyone maybe experiencing similar issues and maybe found a better solution?

Can you share the steps you're doing that cause this to happen? The logs don't show anything specific related to Exploit Protection

There isn't much more to it than just saving a file  with the extension of that file seemingly being irrelevant.

I reproduced the crash saving random wallpapers from imgur as well as downloading random programs from www.heise.de  or computerbase.de . It usually takes less than 10 attempts to reproduce, sometimes even just once can be enough and it only happens when the download already started. The context window where I choose the location appears and the freeze happens the moment I hit the button to save. The window becomes unresponsive and a *.tmp file remains, it usually takes a moment for the stopped working dialogue to show up. If there is a second browser window with say a stream or a video it remains working for a while longer but eventually crashes as well. 

Tried a couple things to solve the issue and deactivating exploit protection happened to be the first that worked.
