I use Google chrome sometimes for googling. My problem occurs when I am entering text like a username, or comments. in the middle of writing, the typing progress freezes. To continue writing I have to minimize and then maximize google chrome. Is there any solution for this?

I use 9.0.597.94 (73967) I also face this problem on the previous version to extensions yes I have the following extensions: Auto Copy, csscan, Firebug Lite for Google Chrome, RemindMe, and Virtual Keyboard (by Google). Yes I use Ubuntu standalone.

Additional details:

  • Can you please spellcheck your query? It's a bit hard to comprehend. – Magic Feb 7 '11 at 7:03
  • Does this also happen in the chromium browser? Or in beta releases of Chrome? – belacqua Feb 9 '11 at 18:00
  • Thank you for your replay, i face this problem on both versions. – Achu Feb 10 '11 at 15:17
  • Try to start Chrome from the command line in incognito mode (e.g., run google-chrome --incognito and see if it sends any errors to your terminal screen) when you are seeing the problem. – belacqua Feb 14 '11 at 7:34
  • no error reporting. – Achu Feb 14 '11 at 14:18

Disable your spelling checker. Even on my machine, it will freeze for a second when I'm typing something with spellchecking enabled.

The only other issue I can think of is an input method. I see scim in your packages and processes list. Try uninstalling it by running:

 sudo apt-get purge scim
  • @Lekensteyn that doesn't solve the problem. – Achu Apr 12 '11 at 9:05
  • What language is you OS / Chromium? – Lekensteyn Apr 12 '11 at 11:43
  • @Lekensteyn English – Achu Apr 13 '11 at 6:16
  • @Achu: Are you running the latest Ubuntu version with up-to-date packages? Just for debugging, can you post a list of active processes by running ps wwaux and installed applications by running dpkg -l (post it on paste.ubuntu.com if it gets large). – Lekensteyn Apr 13 '11 at 8:17
  • @Lekensteyn yes i'm running the latest version. here is the outputs:- ps wwaux paste.ubuntu.com/593478 dpkg -l paste.ubuntu.com/593480 – Achu Apr 13 '11 at 8:36
