After a update few days ago, the Chromium freezes intermittent at each X seconds (maybe 60) but not for all webpages. I was using ubuntu 18.04. I upgraded to 19.10 hopping that the problem went away but not. Remains.

For example, in youtube, the audio of the movie keeps playing well, but the video and the entire webpage frezes. Facebook also shows this problem even when not reproducing any video. This problem does not happen with Firefox or any other programs. For example, VLC does not appear to have this problem.

Chromium Versão 79.0.3945.79 (Compilação oficial) Built on Ubuntu , running on Ubuntu 19.10 (64 bits)

Any ideias to fix this? Thank you.

  • There have been tons of complaints about this release of Chromium on the Linux Mint forums. Can you run another update - Chromium should be on version 79.0.3945.88 now. – ajgringo619 Dec 22 '19 at 16:14
  • I did and there is no newer package of Chromium (at least automatically). – Kaspacainoombro Dec 22 '19 at 19:08
  • I had switched to Chrome (due to DRM issues) a few weeks ago and I haven't experienced any of the freeze issues that have plagued Chromium and other Chrome-based browsers, although I have no idea if this new version is the savior. I'm not sure why the repos haven't gotten the new version yet. – ajgringo619 Dec 22 '19 at 19:12
  • I tried: sudo snap install chromium --beta but it installs a new package ignoring all configurations and settings from current chromium installed. – Kaspacainoombro Dec 22 '19 at 19:26

    That's because of snap's sandboxing. I would wait until a fix is published; like I said, I have no idea if the .88 version is the true "fix" or now. – ajgringo619 Dec 22 '19 at 19:28

The same problem here. Ubuntu 19.10 destroyed my notebook. Freezes mouse on chromium with each new click. You can't use the browser. Ubuntu 19.10 is horrible for GATEWAY N570. Maximum regret to update.

  • I agree. There are some seriuos problems with 19.10. I keept making updates to see if they are fixed. – Kaspacainoombro Jan 25 '20 at 10:53
