Is there something wrong with my setup, because when I try to download the 64-bit .deb from Google the process just gets stuck? The spinner spins, but nothing happens.

Does it work for you?

How and where are you downloading from? –  Mitch Feb 17 at 18:21
    
I'm using Firefox on Ubuntu 13.10 and I'm located in Finland. –  user205301 Feb 17 at 18:22
    
Take a look at This, does it help? –  Mitch Feb 17 at 18:23
    
No, because that's about installing the deb. I cannot even download the deb. –  user205301 Feb 17 at 18:24
    
Edit: downloading with wget works. –  user205301 Feb 17 at 18:25

Try with command lines :

wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

and then install it :

sudo dpkg -i google-chrome*.deb
sudo apt-get install -f

once installed, you can remove the package :

rm google-chrome*.deb

Yeah, that worked. I still wonder why I can't download with Firefox. I don't even have adblock or anything enabled. –  user205301 Feb 17 at 18:27
    
I don't know, I am using firefox 27.0 and Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit, and I can download the .deb both ways (through Firefox and Wget) –  MrVaykadji Feb 17 at 18:28
