After not getting any response for my question, I think I should uninstall and remove data of Chromium from Ubuntu.

As uninstalling Chromium does not remove its data (like browser history, settings), I want to know where are the data of Chromium located and how to remove them safely?

    Try 'apt-get purge chromium-browser' – aroll605 Jun 30 '14 at 3:58
  • Thanks! I think this is one step along with deleting user data from ~/.config/chromium and now the problem is solved. – Barun Jun 30 '14 at 8:23

The data for chromium will be in one of the hidden directories in hour /home/username folder, either ~/.chromium or somewhere in ~/.config As I don't have chromium installed, I don't have the exact location.

According to chromium.org (which you could have checked yourself) the data is stored at ~/.config/chromium

  • Thank you! I uninstalled chromium using apt-get purge chromium-browser and deleted user data using your method, and now Chromium is working properly. – Barun Jun 30 '14 at 8:24
