Facebook Keeps Freezing Chrome And Windows

#Topics: Facebook Keeps Freezing 2013,facebook keeps freezing chrome,chrome freezing,facebook keeps freezing 8/11/2013,may 2013 my account keeps freezing on facebook

Hı, everyone. I am a Windows 7 and Chrome user.

Lately (since past few months) my Chrome has been freezing, taking down whole operating system with it, leaving resetting the computer the only choice. Recently I discovered that the issue was with facebook tabs, and when I close those tabs (if it’s not too late!), I can save Chrome and Windows from a complete crash.

This is very annoying. Is there a solution for this problem? Maybe uninstalling/reinstalling some plugins? Please help. Thanks.

PS: Let me know if for helping me with this issue you need to know the list of extensions I have installed. I’ll provide it in as an addendum.

You can try these two methods; try the first one first, and if it hasn’t worked try the second one:

  1. Delete browser cache to the time before you’ve started having the problems (Chrome has options for 1 hour, 1 day, 4 weeks, all. Pick the nearest).

  2. Disable chrome’s built in flash player plugin. You can access the plugins page by typing about:plugins in the address bar.
    If you see multiple flash versions, look at the location displayed along with it and disable the one that has chrome in its path.

If you have your chrome connected to a google account like I have, disconnect your google account first before you follow method no 1 (from chrome:settings), and reconnect later, that way you won’t lose your history/passwords/search etc.

This has worked for me on multiple occasions on both Mac and Windows.
