Please refer to this post for a short guide on removing malware. In addition to what answers were posted in that thread I would recommend that you do a full reset on all of your browsers just to be safe. It is not that common for non Windows systems to get infections but it is still a possibility that they can get in, and the most common types of infections ...

This does not appear to be an OS related issue. I would recommend you to read this http://www.quora.com/How-do-I-stop-AdsMatte-spam-popups-and-ads Basically it is an attack on/via your router. You should hard reset it. A lot of computers on my intranet got affected. I got rid of it that way.

So here's the problem. Like you mentioned, NPAPI is on its way out and Webkit applications are going to make heavy use of their own in-built notification system instead of respecting the one provided by a desktop environment [1]. Unless someone comes up with a way with intercepting the notification requests for the browser and have it to speak at a local ...

Disclaimer: This solution works now, but not guaranteed to be future-proof. After installing stable (and its dependencies) the convenient way... Download a .deb file from here (I'm using unstable in the example): https://www.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel mkdir tmp dpkg-deb -R google-chrome-unstable_current_amd64.deb tmp sudo cp -r ...

There is no difference between alt-tab and alt-d behaviour. I tested this numerous times on 14.04. The only tricky part is that you have to make sure to press and hold the alt first. So don't press d first. You can see that every time you open the HUD, you have typed a d somewhere. alt - tab works in the exact same way...

I can't offer a direct solution to your problem, but I hope this background information clarifies what's going on. In September, 2015 Chrome plans to drop support entirely for NPAPI plugins, such as Amazon Video.

The .save file was created by APT from the original .list file that Chrome added. It's intended as a backup and doesn't actually affect anything. The .distUpgrade file was probably created by APT when you when you did a release upgrade (I'm assuming you did). The Chrome package is unaware of them (Chrome didn't have anything to do with their creation), so ...
