I changed nothing with any of my settings, extensions, etc. and Chromium decided to randomly start crashing right when I tried to reopen it after closing it. I get the following output:

I found this thread and attempted to use that solution with the same result. I am running Ubuntu 16.04.2 Xenial LTS. Any ideas? Thanks.


Temporary solution:-

Try open it without extensions.

chromium-browser --disable-extensions
  • Less obtrusive workaround and link to bug report with fixed packages here: askubuntu.com/a/932353/653294. Jul 7 '17 at 12:58
  • I feel like this solution is like: Don't use your browser if it constantly crashes. Sorry, but not very helpful.

  • @n3rd it was bug at that time which is resolved(i think) So I gave OP temp. solution. I have mention that in my answer.
