Whenever i right-click the launcher and choose "New Window" or click a link outside of Chrome a new window opens up with the following message:

Your profile could not be opened correctly.

Some features may be unavailable. Please check that the profile exists and you have permission to read and write its contents.

If i start the browser normally everything works fine.

I'm using Ubuntu 13.04.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks but that doesn't work for me. When i start Chrome i have no problem whatsoever. This happens when i click links outside of the browser or when i select "New Window" option in the unity launcher. –  Gonçalo Marrafa Oct 9 '13 at 19:11
The answer is here. askubuntu.com/questions/368279/… This is a Chromium problem –  Diogenes Lantern Oct 30 '13 at 14:11
Again, i think this is the answer for when we always get an error. I only get the error when i select "New Window" from the unity launcher or when i click a link on an app other than Chrome that should trigger the default browser. –  Gonçalo Marrafa Oct 31 '13 at 15:15
