    Did you install my theme on Chrome 3.0.182.2? Because that could be the problem (The theme is not yet compatible with it)

    i had already had it installed on the previous version, then it auto updated, now i cant even open chrome, and usually the previous version folder is left but this time only the 3.0.182.2 folder is there. So i havn't even been able to experiance the really small text because it will not open, it will not make a new process!

    i installed chrome on a different user (who has never had chrome) and updated to the dev channel, and it works perfect, i dont have the small text bug, i think that when chrome auto-updated it was corrupted or something, i have everything back to normal thanks

    @pumpman

    You might want to think about disabling auto update ....

    There seems to have been a lot of feedback on this latest version of Chrome...

    I bet we'll suddenly find a lot of posts here saying 'what do you expect, it is a Dev channel after all'

    But the Dev channel has been really stable of late, as most of us know ...

    I personally choose whether to update now, normally give it a couple of days for all the nasties to surface first :-)

    Thanx, but i had already set it to not auto-update and it updated itself anyway, and yes the dev channel has been going a perfect roll.


    EDIT
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I can access chrome under one user but not mine, not even if i copy everything from the chrome folder, or even if i make a shortcut on my desktop from the other user, i cant even run it directly from the exe in the other user. I'm using Win XP SP3 if that helps

    @pumpman,

    did you remove all traces of Chrome when removing it and reinstalling it?

    I'm on Win 7 now so I can't give you the path

    IIRC it's local settings/local applications/Google/Chrome or something like that

    (bookmarks will also be deleted unless you back up)
