    Hi xXWhackerXx.

    Boiler plate - have you removed your browsing data - know your passwords

    Next reset chrome, read the fine print

    i am not resetting the browser and rebuilding it. just a wee bit drastic for what's most likely an extension or browser update issue. if after going extension and disabling i still have the issue then i'll reset and build up from scratch again. i have a list of my extensions already for both chrome and opera.

    ok i missed the disable extensions. i'll give the reset a try and go through and set things back one by one and let you know what i get.
