I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 on an Acer Aspire 4750G laptop. Recently I've started having a problem with HTML SELECT option lists when using Chrome or Chromium.
Normally everything works fine, then the select options on web pages will start showing as blank. Here's a screenshot:
The problem occurs erratically and happens with both Chrome and Chromium, but not with Firefox. Once it happens I have to close all Chrome/Chromium sessions to get rid of it.
Once it occurs it happens on all sites but only seems to affect options. It's not a CSS error because the above sample was created with the most basic code possible:
<body> <table> <tr> <td>Test Select:</td> <td> <select name="test"> <option value="1">Option 1</option> <option value="2">Option 2</option> <option value="3">Option 3</option> <option value="4">Option 4</option> <option value="5">Option 5</option> <option value="6">Option 6</option> </select> </td> </tr> </table> </body>
If I look at the page source in the browser it looks fine, and I can select the options by cursoring up and down, but they don't display and I can't select with a mouse click.
Can anyone suggest why this may be happening? I've hunted Google but can't find a single reference to this problem. Would very much appreciate any suggestions.
