My Google Chrome stopped working mysteriously. When I run it from a terminal I get:
$ google-chrome-stable Aborted (core dumped)
I installed google chrome via de Debian package and I am running a 64-bit machine.

I had the same issue and someone advised me to remove
~/.gtkrc-2.0 which did fix it for me. No idea why though.
A lot of people have said that removing
~/.gtkrc-2.0 would do the trick. I had the same problem but I had no such file! Uninstalling and installing chrome also doesn't help.
Turns out, when Chrome crashes sometimes the User Data Directory can get corrupted. So to fix it I did the following:
apt-get purge google-chrome-stable
rm -rf /home/<<your username>>/.config/google-chrome/and
rm -rf /home/<<your username>>/.cache/google-chrome/
I had the same problem for both chromium and chrome. I just removed their respective config directories:
rm -rf ~/.config/chromium*
rm -rf ~/.config/google-chrome
and everything worked again.
