(SOLVED) Has the latest update of Chromium done something?

Postby arochester » 2020-07-03 13:40

Chromium has slowed to a snail's pace.

I spent a while checking out my wifi connection. Maybe there is some conflict with my extensions?

Then installed Firefox. Runs fine and at the speed I would expect.

Has anyone else experienced this - or is it just me?

Kinda sad to say but I gave up on chromium; Goddess bless the maintainer(s) but what I've been getting from Unstable repos has to be fixed more often than not. I finally gave up on it and switched to Firefox for more than a year and went back to Chrome.

Although I'm fairly privacy-conscious, in this application I don't think I'm that important or even that interesting :D

According to the bug report it is shown to have been fixed. How long does it typically take for the completed result take to show up in the repo? Is it an automated process or a manual upload?

I had the same problem and it drove me completely NUTS. Was suspecting that I have gotten some nasty virus or that someone is mining coins on my computer.
Purged and reinstalled Chromium, and even created a completely new user and tried chromium on that. Didn't work. Finally changed to Firefox, which worked well the whole time.

But today I got a new update to the chromium -package and everything works perfectly again :D

I am using Debian Buster

It is now have been fixed. According debian-security-announce

The previous update for chromium released as DSA 4714-1 was mistakenly built without compiler optimizations. This caused high CPU load and frequent crashes. Updated chromium packages are now available that correct this issue. For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in version 83.0.4103.116-1~deb10u2.

The CPU is back to normal but still crashes just as frequently. What is the proper way to report?

Yes, I installed the update and it's back to speed, but Chromium still seems to suddenly disappear irregularly...

I have temporarily installed Chrome to use the same extensions, bookmarks etc. and it doesn't seem to have that problems.

My chromium is back in working order, and doesn't crash. Maybe I am lucky?

Well, Pale Moon and Seamonkey have their proponents, along with Slimjet and Vivaldi, but none of those are in the Debian repo. There are deb packages for all of those, though. Again--ungoogled-chromium also seems to be crash-free.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: LibreOffice 7.0.0, QMPlay2 20.07.04, Pale Moon 28.12.0, KeepassXC 2.6.0, Arqiver 0.6.0+git, Foliate 2.4.2

This issue is marked SOLVED, but it is not.

The latest update fixed the Chromium crash issue on my mid-2011 iMac, but my 2017 HP Envy 15 is still suffering from Chromium crashes.

I am looking at these two bug reports:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=964334

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=963548
Debian Stable (mid-2011 iMac 27-inch, 2017 HP Envy 15)
GNOME 3

Are you sure about that Pale Moon AppImage? Moonchild, the main PM guy, is of the opinion that the Mozilla license actually prohibits the distribution of binaries in things like appimages and snaps, and I was not aware of any for PM (being the guy that runs the approved repo for Debian and Ubuntu PM packages on the OBS, where they are built from source the old-timey way.) If that's true, let me know so I can let the PM guys know.
