Since I've installed Ubuntu on my system I've done several changes. One of them was installing Google Chrome, since i use it on Windows and also it's lighter in my opinion (but that is not the problem). The problem is that on Ubuntu the forms on web pages aren't showing when completing a form or changing an option in select dropdown menu.

Example: when I log in on an account I first type in the user and the password... well I type them but the fields remain empty on the page tough the value changes; if I type the right log in information it logs in, if I don't it gives the error (specific to every page).

I repeat that this is happening only on my Ubuntu version of Google Chrome, the Windows Chrome works just fine). Is this happening to some others as well?

I had the same problem. Also with Facebook some problems arose with the last version of chrome. Since I upgraded to 12.10 all these things disappeared fortunately. –  Michele Oct 25 '12 at 9:12
have you run: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade to make sure that there are no updates available for chrome? They don't always package the latest version on their download. –  lordqwerty Oct 25 '12 at 9:14
Maybe you should look at "ive dones several changes"? Could be some changes there that cause your problem? Some theme? –  user25656 Oct 25 '12 at 9:19
Just to be clear, now I have version 22.0.1229.94 (I think it's the latest) –  Michele Oct 25 '12 at 9:20
i for once installed kde environment since it moves more smoother then unity(also tried gnome 3 but i think it awfull on multitasking) but chrome was installed before kde or gnome, now i installed chromium which works perfectly :-|, its strange cause ive tried lubuntu a couple of months ago and chromium was really outdated and thought that the development of chromium was put to sleep so when i installed ubuntu, installed google chrome directly, lets hope chromium keeps up to date –  adi Oct 25 '12 at 16:36
