I updated this morning the OS tumbleweed with regular updates and now I am not able to use google chrome. No thumbnail showing up neither any video is playing. Google Chat also broken icon and no images.
Thanks for you help if some one resolved this issue.
Please can you be more precise?:
How did you install Google Chrome? Flatpak? Real Chrome repo? How?
What thumbnail is where not showing?
What videos are not playing? Do you use packman and did you perform a proper vendor switch?
The same question applies for Google Chat…
Did you try to use a X session?

Same issue, but I noticed ALL Chrome based browsers show this issue, for me … Chromium, Chrome (stable), Brave … oddly, Opera renders fine.
(With a couple of odd exceptions) I always update a laptop first, reboot, and briefly check for any issues. All was fine after update (even Chrome based browsers), so updated other laptop … all fine.
Then I updated the 1st desktop. Chrome browsers fail a proper render. I booted the second desktop … same issue.
HOWEVER … Chrome Beta works on the primary desktop.
Using the Slate theme as default … switching themes, or not using one, doesn’t change. “Use GTK” or not, doesn’t change. I use “Auto Dark Mode for Web Contents” found in “chrome://flags” - altering that doesn’t change the issue.
If I’m bored, I might further investigate …
But yea, if you rename the “chrome stable” subdirectory found in the “/home/username/.config” subdirectory, that’ll fix it, but doing that is like “starting Chrome for the first time after installing”.
I don’t do the “Settings reset” for a couple+ reasons:
a) the “Reset” button isn’t rendered.
b) It’s a pain to re-establish passwords and open tabs, etc
c) I can simply click on Chrome Beta or Unstable, and they work.
However … ALL those browsers work on the laptop which has a Mesa 620 graphic. The desktop, where it doesn’t render properly, uses Nvidia.
