Is it possible that uninstalling chrome and chromium is not enough, that I must to do a fresh reinstall and work only with the seamonkey browser instead of Mozilla and only with Duckduckgo instead of Google search after that?

    Ok thanks for the tip, done what you said. I am already changing to a new user profile by changing my email address from gmail to something else and will check out the page you've suggested to see exactly what all that means.

    After removing chrome-shell, seeing marked improvement in browsing experience. Thanks so much.

    Still noticing some strange behaviour on my mozilla firefox browser. Each time I save a password, a copy of that shows up in the password manager with Chrome appended to the name of the website and some garbled username and password to go along with it. So chrome still might be lurking on my computer and trying to mess around with my passwords. Please advise what I should do.

    Please, with the user “root”, execute “rpmconfigcheck”.
    Also with the user “root”, the command “zypper verify” will perform some basic checking.
    Also with the user “root”, execute the command “rpm --verify --all” – you may have to pass the output through “less” – take special account of the messages containing “missing”.
