On running Google Chrome, then a while later exiting all screens (using the top-right [X]) on each, I notice that the
/opt/google/chrome/chrome process still persists, along with very many (20+) other sub-processes/threads.
On occasion, while these processes are still running and no Chrome windows are open, executing
/usr/bin/google-chrome %U via a desktop launcher icon will:
- Open four Chrome windows in quick succession;
- Report the following error for each new window:
If I dismiss all the error messages, close all the Chrome windows, terminate all the Chrome processes, then run the same command again, everything works fine. It is only on occasion when the processes are already running does this occur.
It is unclear to me where to check/set permissions on the profile. Can anyone point me in the right direction to fix or avoid this problem?
- This question suggests the problem lies in the syncing of passwords. I have tried disabling this, but the problem persists.
