:hmmm:

Type chrome://plugins into the address bar

Click the http://i.imgur.com/cHR0J.jpg button on the right side to expand the plugins

Look for the PPAPI pepperflash plugin.

Click Disable


If you already have the official adobe version of flash installed, it should show up right under the pepperflash plugin listing

Leave this one enabled.

Otherwise go download the official one from adobe

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

uncheck the mcafee shit obviously



Clear the cache. Restart chrome and see if it still happens



Pepperflash re-enables itself after Chrome updates so look out for that. I know for a fact that this bug is fixed in the Chrome dev builds so it'll be fixed in an update sooner or later.


or since someone will mention it, there's always Firefox or Opera

Mine have been frozen the last few weeks.
If I'm very interested I just drag the GIF to the tab bar and open it in its own menu and watch it there... for some reason when I do that, all the GIF in a thread work properly.

had to stop using chrome. had video conference stream issues. went back to firefox.

I like chrome because it's a lighter page than firefox, but oh well. I do a lot of consulting using video conference.

Awesome. That worked. Like others have posted, I thought it was a setting on my machine that was fucked up. And, I do recall that this started happening right after a Chrome update.

I'm the other way. Had to drop firefox to go to chrome.

You can ctrl + left click or just middle mouse button click the link to open in a new Tab.

I like to surf with many tabs open. But in chrome sometimes when I click on one of my tabs it simply opens up in a new window instead. I want to know how to stop it from doing it.

I want to know how to stop it from doing it.i do the same, but none of the links i click ever open up in a new window unless its an allowed popup. they only open in new tabs if anything.

I have my computer at work and at home that it happens on. And again I'm not talking about links. If I have multiple tabs open and click on a tab, oftentimes instead of just opening up, it will open in a new window.

That (should) only happens when you click and drag the tab away from the window.

No dragging, only clicking and not every time. But its still annoying.
