Chrome not auto signing in anymore.

So I recently like 3-4 days now have this problem whereby if I open my chrome I need to log into it. Normally it just auto login without a problem. I also have the problem on other sites, I'm log out of all of them.

I checked my password manager and noticed that every password was gone. I tried adding one but it didn't show up.

I checked coockies and cleared my cache already... The other thing that I find is strange is that I used my laptop yesterday and here i have offcourse the same login and stuff and everything works just fine here.. It remembers my passowords and I can just auto sign in into everything.

Its getting annoying there are sites I use several times a day and I need to keep manually fill in my passwords everytime.

anyone knows how to fix this?

Kind regards!

Edit: I read on some other post he had kinda the same problem and reinstalled chrome. this also worked for me!

How to search for videos with less than 1000 views ? Are there any chrome extensions to filter for videos with specific range of view count? YouTubes default filter can only filter for high view count.

Lost pages and tabs chrome

Hello,

My pc restarted after an update. Normally I can restore my tabs and pages after chrome has closed, but for some reason not this time.

I had a lot of pages open and I don't think everything will show up in history. So I think I could only restore a small amount of the pages that way.

How could I restore my pages and tabs?

How to prevent javascript from stopping execution in a browser window when it becomes inactive

In the video, I take a separate Chrome window and broadcast it through Google Meet, so you can see that at the moment when the broadcast browser window becomes inactive, it stops updating in HTML. Question - how to make sure that the browser window does not stop the execution of the JS?

June 2024 Bookmark Manager Missing Edit Function!?

Frequent Bookmark Manager here with Chrome up to date - the function that allows adding a folder is now missing. Not accessible from menu, not accessible with right click or click onto right side dots - just rename, delete, cut, copy open. Anyone solve this?

net::err_cert_common_name_invalid

https://www.homeoption.org/choice/login.aspx

I logged into this site a few days ago on my laptop with no problems, but the last two days I've tried to do the exact same thing, but I've been getting that error. I've tried on my phone and also got the same error.

I've tried clearing cookies and cache on both devices. Why would this happen all of a sudden, and how can I fix it? Thanks

How to create site specific shortcuts?

I want to make a keyboard shortcut to get me to the homepage of the site im currently on. But different sites have different ways of writing that url so I don't think it's possible to make a do-all shortcut. So I would like to do the next best thing and just enter the url I want the shortcut to send me to manually. For that I would need a way to create a shortcut that checks what site I'm currently on and then enters the according url, which in my case would be the homepage of that website.
Is there a way to do such a thing?

Chrome newest version 125 has issue with JQuery on my website and cause it load really slow with high cpu and memory

Auto update to Chrome 125 and some pages on our internal website are reported load really slow. After checking around, I detected that some part of JQuery conflicts with ver. 125, cause high CPU and Memory when loading and took too long to ran. Tried downgrade to 123 and 124 to check but this issue didn't occur.

It happens on Mac and Windows

P/S: Edge also has the same problem with version 125

Chrome shows a "close" window on the top right corner.

Chrome shows this close window for no reason, on random webpages and it prevents me from using the 'ctrl + w" to close tabs quickly. It's become quite annoying to manually click and close the tabs.

It happens with or without on Adblocker and the only other extension I have installed is the Sponsor Block extension.

Googling this issue seems to bringup no results so, if anyone has any idea what's going, please let me know!

Thank you!

I'm using Chrome 125 on Windows 11 23H2.

Can't Enable Windows Hello when filling passwords

I reinstalled Chrome earlier because autofill passwords wasn't working, which was fixed. But now I can't enable Windows Hello when filling passwords. When I click on the toggle button, it just stays off. Already tried reinstalling again. Any other solution?

Edit: I am also unable to actually view my passwords saved.

Can’t fix this, in need of help.

I’ve already gone through the chrome books system and says its up to date. I followed what google suggests may fix it didn’t work, resetting did nothing. It’s an older chrome book yes ik, I just want to change the theme… and it’s tuned into the most irritating 2 hours of my life…

Is there a way to revert to the old context menu?

Is there a way after the newest update to restore the old format of the right-click context menu? If not, is there an extension that can do it? Scrolling in the context menu is a really stupid idea.

Ctrl + P does not bring up the print window

When I'm on a web page I want to print (technically I use the print feature to save the page as a PDF) I hit Ctrl +P like I've been doing all my life. Except currently - I do not remember when it started - that does nothing. I can click the 3 lil dots in the top right corner to manually select the Print option, but every time I do that it reminds me that I can just do Ctrl + P... but that doesn't work?

Password manager doesn't allow me to view/edit passwords through browser settings

When I go to the password manager through the browser settings and click on a site to see that site's info - password, notes, etc. nothing happens. Same thing when I go to pw manager settings and click on "export" so I can just move my passwords to another browser. Nothing happens. Hovering the cursor over the "export" button still changes it into a finger. Clicking it just doesn't do anything. But clicking on "import" or absolutely anything else works just fine.

I can still access my passwords and export everything through my google account, but I prefer doing it through my browser settings and am still curious to know why this is happening. I've looked through all the security settings I can find. I've only had this problem since the most recent update. I'm using another chrome based browser and don't have this problem at all.

iPhone Chrome app tabs closing automatically

This issue randomly started on Saturday morning. I opened Chrome to all of my tabs gone except for the Incognito tabs. This has since happened again twice already today. When I go into my recently closed tabs, the tabs don’t show up. What is happening and how do I get this to stop?

Activity Possible Bug Question

On https://myactivity.google.com/myactivity it is possible to see all of your activity on Chrome. I have synchronized my computer and my phone, which means that I can see activity from both devices, and Chrome does differentiate between the two, as I can click a search from my phone and it will be correctly labeled as such.

My question is, is it possible for Chrome to incorrectly tag something searched on my phone as a computer search, or vice versa? Furthermore, will it ever incorrectly tag the time of a search as later or earlier than it was actually searched? I have a massive contradiction in my browsing history that could be explained by this, but I am still not sure how the Activity page works.

report the chrome web store review team member because of being stupid and low iq ?

Hello

I've made a video downloader extension and submitted that to the chrome web store.

The extension supports downloading various sites. The extension is rejected the following email

They say "I've installed and visited the porn site. I can download the videos from adult site." . This is insane.

There is a popular video downloader extension call "Download Helper" . The url is https://chromewebstore.google.com/detail/video-downloadhelper/lmjnegcaeklhafolokijcfjliaokphfk

You can download the videos from. adult sites too. How can you check the external site content? There is no chrome rule a developer must check the extension content

Another example can be screenshot extensions . Do you think that stupid chrome web store team member checked the checks like "I've installed and visited the porn site. I can take screenshots from adult site." . The answer is NO.

https://preview.redd.it/a462n9h13f1d1.png?width=2176&format=png&auto=webp&s=3416d919c2df5cc78edd7886d819ece42ed1d3c0

I will be happy to give me some ideas for the following questions

  1. There is no chrome web store rule that extension developer must check the remote site content. How can screenshot extension extension developer or a video downloader extension developer can check the remote site content? This is insane
  2. If the plugin developer is responsible for the content of remote sites, shouldn't they remove all extension that takes screenshot?
  3. They are not honest. Same extensions but they are saying that they want to apply different rules.
  4. The chrome extension store team does not reply any message. I've paid for the membership
  5. How can i report this stupid guy to somewhere ? Chrome web store is also a part of Alphabet family. Being stupid also counts to Alphabet. Do you think i can report this stupid to Alphabet like "You have hired a stupid team. They decrease your brand value"

I hope Alphabet did not hired stupid people team like chrome web store. Because being unfair and hiring stupid people must company culture. For example, adwords can contains stupid people like these guys

BTW My extension that chrome web store team rejected is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/simple-video-downloader/

Thanks for the ideas

Is there a way to move tab search back to the right side?

I just updated my chrome after awhile and it looks like the tab search has moved back to the left despite me disabling it a few patches ago. It looks horrendous on the left side and there's way too much open space on the right side. Also muscle memory to move my mouse to top left to my most used tab gets me to a tab search now. Not fond of the change.

Disabling "Chrome Refresh 2023" and disabling "Customize Chrome Side Panel" under flags no longer works. Are there any other fixes aside from downgrading in version?

How to move tab search back to right

I just installed Chrome Version 125.0.6422.60 (Official Build) (64-bit), and all the previous flag disablements that kept the tab search on the right no longer work (disabling "Customize Chrome Side Panel," disabling "Chrome Refresh 2023," etc). Has anyone figured out how to move tab search back to the right in this version? TIA!

PSA: Chrome appears to update but doesn't

Long time Chrome user on Mac here. Something I've noticed recently on a Mac with two user accounts both using Chrome. In each user's instance of Chrome, the "Relaunch to update" button appears in the top right corner, and when clicked Chrome goes through the motions of shutting down and restarting, but the version number doesn't change.

The only way to update is to completely shut down the secondary user's Chrome completely, then log in the primary user's account and update Chrome from there. I know this might sound logical to most people but I was fooled for a long time thinking I was updating diligently when in fact my Chrome version was several months out of date.
