Google Chrome crashes with tooltip popup
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Google Chrome will crash (often with many tabs open) when a tooltip appears.

Sometimes the tooltip will popup and stay on screen, overlapping any other application. This is an indication that Chrome might crash soon. This is not certain to happen and sometimes it will just crash instantly, still displaying a tooltip over other applications. Chrome freezes and is no longer responsive; must be killed with SIGKILL.

@zmike since this chrome bug has been reported in 2014 - nearly 2 years ago - could you please document this somewhere it can be found easily as it is really annoying?

@zmike this is not the same bug as it does not happen in Cinnamon or any other DE for that matter.

EDIT: Or maybe it IS the same bug, but it has been fixed in the other DEs then because it only happens to me in Enlightenment. Please reopen

It turns out this is the result of both a compositor bug and a chromium bug. I've fixed the compositor-side issue.
