It is possible that this error has now been fixed. According Debian Security Advisory DSA-4714-3

The previous update for chromium released as DSA 4714-2 contained a flaw in the service worker implementation. This problem causes the browser to crash when a connection error occurs. 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~deb10u3.

i reinstalled it yesterday on 2 thinkpads and they both crashed so i removed chromium again. Kind of fed up with it - just faster than firefox on all machines. So still running firefox yet. FWIW.

Well, the new update in Sid says:

chromium (83.0.4103.116-3) unstable; urgency=high

* Fix crashes when a connection error occurs (closes: #963548).
- Thank you so much to Riku Voipio.

So I'll be backporting that for MX tonight to see how it works.

Apparently the non-vaapi version is already in buster security as -deb10u3, so maybe that'll fix it for you guys.
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

Maybe they call it something else but I call it an appimage. I execute it with
Code: Select all

The ~/Downloads/palemoon/ directory looks similar to all the other appimages I have.
