Hi everyone,

I am using Fedora 25 XFCE. Chrome browser is always freezeing up up on me. I als tried out google-chrome-unstable. It does mot help all the time.

I have no choice but use STRG + CTRL +F2 and back to F1 but one gets tired of that.

Same problem here (also XFCE). Do you happen to have an AMD/ATI graphics card? That's my case on both desktop and laptop machines, and Chrome freezes just the same on both. Besides, solar plymouth splash theme has no smooth animation but rather erratic... maybe both problems have something to do with ati/amd graphics driver on F25...

In fact, Chrome itself is not "frozen", just its screen output. If you click on a link. open a tab or do something while "frozen", when it comes back to live, those actions have been performed.

BTW, Chromium also freezes just the same
