When I open Chromium the tabs do not load (even the New Tabs). First, I tried to remove (actually, rename) ~/.config/chromium to chromium_old and nothing got better. Then I purged and removed all chromium-browser vestige in my laptop. I reinstalled Chromium and tabs are still not working (included Bookmarks, about: ,etc.) I can surf the web without any problem in Opera Midori and Firefox.

I am using 10.0.614.0 (69504) Ubuntu 10.10, the problem started yesterday by the night (UTC) when I updated as everyday my chromium-browser packages. Since the problem started I'd updated only once my browser.

The problem was an old that I ported from Chrome a few weeks ago.

I only had to delete /usr/lib/chromium-browser/

Thanks! I had the same problem and deleting this file helped... – Lincoln Feb 27 '11 at 13:35
