I am experiencing a weird issue with Chrome on Ubuntu Gnome:
I can't put Chrome on fullscreen because it freezes the system. Actually the system just seems to be frozen, but I can't use it because it only show a static blueish screen (as the hue were changed to blue) from Chrome on top of everything.
The problem doesn't occur when using Opera.
I am able to resume normal use after restarting Gnome Shell (inputting
r after pressing Ctrl+F2).
I did find some similar issues from other users, but can't find a solution/workaround:
- Fullscreen Chrome video causes Ubuntu to crash: Turning hardware acceleration off has no effect.
- Making youtube fullscreen will freeze Unity (the whole desktop): I ditched canary because other issues, but tested in stable and the problem still persist.
- Ubuntu 17.04 64-bit (dev branch)
- GNOME Shell 3.24.0
- NVIDIA 378.13
- Google Chrome 58.0.3029.54 beta
