Chromium crashes when installing a program add-on

Although whatever add-on I try to install, Chromium crashes. In my opinion, I have done a clean installation of Chromium (chromium information has been destroyed from the .config and .cache directories).

Chromium version is 115.0.5790.170-1.1

Could this be a hw problem? In the previous chromium version I had to turn off hardware acceleration? When I turned it off in this lates version, I got the add-on installed and chrome didn’t crash. But when I moved the bookmarks and settings from Firefox, chromium crashed again. Is it possible that old bookmarks/settings can no longer be transferred to chromium? I have dozens of bookmarks and I use a password manager, which I can’t install now. :roll_eyes:

I have exactly the same problem. Chromium segfaults if I try to install any extensions.

Simple and quick test.
Create a new user account (never used before).
Login as that new user.
Fire up Chromium … (do not log into a Chromium Profile acct).
Install the extensions in question.

Does it work now? If yes, there’s something amiss in your configuration of the Chromium for your normal user account. (in .config or .cache sub-directory).

If no, then there’s an (potential) issue with the extension(s) or Chromium.

It has been tested. Creating a new user ID does not help. Just like that, chromium crashed.
Version 115.0.5790.170 (Official build) for Linux Mint (64-bit) works OK.
Version 115.0.5790.170 (openSUSE Build) stable (64-bit) does not work.

Thanks for your messages! I already thought I was an idiot. :slightly_smiling_face:

Same here. Chromium runs fine with --disable-extensions but fails when run normally. I have just 1 extension really, KeepassXC. I don’t know if the OP has the same or other extension? But looking at the other replies it is “any extension”.

I have tested with several addons. But the most important thing is that KeepassXC. I currently use Firefox but prefer Chromium.

Similar issue with similar stack. :sob:. Was blaming wayland, but no,something is wrong with extensions.

There is a fix for it underway:

Wait for the next snapshot!

I just installed the new Chromium version 115.0.5790.170-2.1.
The new chromium doesn’t really display anything.
This is even worse than the previous version.
And there will be a lot of log.

I should probably remove the hardware acceleration again, but how? Can I somehow patch it off?

Do as in this Reply post

Thank you!
I got Chromium to work without any problems and the addon is installed.

Looks like the last update mess with the extensions again. Chromium is laggy and I cant access the extensions menu properly.

The extensions list

The Ublock Origin menu

Have you tried aggie’s advice to look for GPUCache files?

find ~/ -type d -name GPUCache

Try to change the names of the Chromium GPUCache files to e.g. GPUCache-original.
I hope this helps.
