I’ve just found one missing feature: is it possible to create shortcuts for Web apps with the chromium snap?
chromium 68.0.3440.75 has been promoted to the stable channel.
With the latest update of the
candidate/from-source channel (68.0.3440.106) I’m getting a lot of “Oh no! This tab stop responding” in Webs like:
Is anybody else affected?
Yes, I’m aware of the issue and I am investigating it. Any page that embeds video is affected, so it’s pretty bad, but it’s not affecting chromium in any other channel, as far as I know, only
This should be fixed now, please update to the latest revision in
candidate/from-source (420) and confirm that it works for you.
@casey: I am not seeing that. Which channel/version of the chromium snap is this, on which distro?
It’s working OK now! Thanks!
Which was the problem?
I didn’t get to the bottom of the crash but the backtrace indicated that it had to do with clang’s Control Flow Integrity, so I restored a build flag that is also used when building chromium deb packages (this commit), and it did the trick.
Chromium 68.0.3440.106 (421)
Tested over a period of about six hours.
All worked ok except the icons next to the filename in file upload dialog are missing.
Hi I have this issue with the fonts on Fedora 28
Version 68.0.3440.106 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Any idea? What can I do to help debug? (I’m not an expert as you guys :D)
Last night I was using revision 437 which I left running when I suspended my laptop. This morning when I resumed operation I used Chromium briefly before switching to another application and workspace.
Within a minute or two I noticed that Chromium’s indicator in Ubuntu Dock to show it was being used had gone. I switched back to Chromium’s workspace to find it had crashed. On restarting it offered to restore web pages as it had shutdown incorrectly.
“snap changes” shows I am now using revision 438 after an auto refresh which happened a couple of minutes after I switched on my laptop.
I’m new to snaps so I don’t know what I should have seen when the application auto-refreshed. I suspect either nothing or a message from Chromium to advise of the update. Or was the crash just a coincidence and not related to the refresh?

A further issue is that going to http://extensions.gnome.org produces the following error:
Although GNOME Shell integration extension is running, native host connector is not detected. Refer documentation for instructions about installing connector.
Both Chrome and the regular version of Chromium allow me to use that site to manage extensions.
I have two cosmetic issues:
- The cursor when hovering the UI becomes old fashioned
- It doesn’t follow my current theme (Communitheme) but uses Adwaita instead
Is there any way to make widevine to work with it and for it to be snapped separately as a library to consume?
