I am wondering if someone might be able to help me out.

I suddenly (well I believe it happened after some ubuntu system updates recently) have issues when going into Chrome with it complaining that the profile could not be opened correctly. I have tried many of the suggested fixes (which all work for a total of one launch of the program). What I'm finding is if I kill all google/chrome processes it won't give the profile error on next launch, it seems that chrome is not cleaning exiting (I have turned on the setting to not run chrome in the background... this made no difference). I've done an apt-get purge to clean before re-installing... did nothing to alleviate this issue. Chromium doesn't have the same issue.

Ideas? (On Version 45.0.2454.85 (64-bit) Google Chrome) Ubuntu 12.04

PS: Also around this same time Firefox lost it's Minimize/Close buttons on the top right. I can only close it with alt-f4 now.

I had this problem too.

anyways. do:

cd ~/.config/google-chrome

then run

sudo rm -rf *

WARNING: THIS WILL MAKE CHROME RESET EVERYTHING! YOU WILL LOSE ALL BOOKMARKS!

This should fix this.

Try running

killall -9 chrome

Before starting chrome.
