Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The default key combination for clearing browsing data in Chromium (Ctrl+⇧Shift+Del) isn't working when the New Tab page is open and in focus: I press the keys and nothing happens.

If I click the menu icon in Chromium and choose the Tools -> Clear browsing data option, the dialog shows up. If I'm not looking at the New Tab page, the dialog shows up as expected if I press the same keys.

I'm using Chromium in Ubuntu 12.04 (version 23.0.1271.97-0ubuntu0.12.04.1). There are no extensions installed and I'm not in incognito mode.

I can use the same key combination on the same machine on Firefox and it works.

How can I fix this?

EDIT: It's been pointed to me that this question is a bug request and should be closed. I have filed a bug report on the Chromium project site.

Seems like this bug to me Issue 112874. I can reproduce this in Google Chrome 24.0.1312.52-r175374 too. I'm voting to close this as bugs are off-topic here as per the FAQ –  gertvdijk Jan 21 '13 at 11:58
    
it works for me, I'm using Chromium 23.0.1271.97 –  Alen Jan 21 '13 at 11:59
    
Just found out the key combination works on any page, except for the new page tab. Updating the question. @gertvdijk, the bug you linked seems quite similar but not the same. –  That Brazilian Guy Jan 21 '13 at 12:02
    
@ruda.almeida Yes, fair enough. Good information you just found for a nice new bug report there then! :) (still off-topic imo) It seems there's a lot of fuzz about this shortcut (> 10 issues in one year and even more commits). It seems like a plain regression bug. –  gertvdijk Jan 21 '13 at 12:09
