I use 3 browsers in my Ubuntu Desktop: chromium-browser (installed from ubuntu's repositories), google-chrome (installed stable version) and firefox (installes from ubuntu's repositories).
Today I had to install icedtea to run a java applet in firefox (it was a secure applet) and everything went OK. Often I browse using chromium but I have google-chrome installed too cause I use a private organization website which for some reason seems to have problems with chromium managing my user session.
Everything went OK until my google-chrome and chromium stopped working, they just freezed. I tried to reset my config by deleting chromium and chrome folder from ~/.config, also cleared corresponding ~/.cache but I could not get them to work properly again. After this I uninstalled them, first directly through dpkg with "dpkg -r" to remove and also "dpkg -P" to purge. After reinstalling them I could get chrome to work but it got stucked at "checking..." when trying to install extensions which I really need. About chromium it hangs when I try to access settings.
Finally I've tried to purge using "apt-get -purge" and also removing ~/.config and ~/.cache but the same problems persist. I've totally run out of ideas about what can I do to fix the problems. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
ALSO Im using ubuntu with the xubuntu-desktop package installed but I don't think thats causing any problems.
Thank you for help!
