    Default Restore pages after crash

    When Google Chrome crashes - as it does with frequency - when I start it again it offers to restore the pages previously open.

    I NEVER want to do that. Is there a way to suppress the message (appearing in a yellow band across the upper part of the screen.)

    pjfla,

    It is NOT normal that your browser crashes with frequency !
    There must be something wrong with your system or settings.
    I use Chrome as my only browser and it maybe crashed twice on me this year.
    Believe you me, I do a lot of browsing, testing, experimenting, extension, user scripts, speed tests, etc...
    A lot more stresstesting than the average Joe.
    So I insist, your system or other programs must be to blame because Chrome does not crash often.
    I am not a blind Chrome fan boy but facts are facts and the Dev version, that I use, has some problems but crashing is certainly not one of them.

    Just my opinion,

    I use Windows XP SP3 32 bit
    My machine is equipped with 2 X Xeon Processors (single core)
    NVIDIA Quadro FX 4400 video card + calibrated Eizo 21"monitor
    4 GB Memory
    Chrome 3.0.183.1 (Official Build 17570)
    I use CCleaner every day to get rid of overhead junk files.
    My registry is cleaned every day (Registry Mechanic)
    My disk are defragmented every week. (Perfectdisk 10)
    Spy and virusscans every week. (AVG Pro & Superantispyware)

    I'm with you on this Luc VN ...

    I actually can't remember the last time that Chrome crashed on me ...

    I have a similar config to yours and use a lot of the same types of tools (CCleaner, Defrags, Registry cleaners and virus scans) ...

    Also do a lot of research into free software (fraught with danger - lmao) ...

    As for the Dev channel (I'm on 3.0.183.1) apart from the small glitch with fonts the other day it's been extremely robust over the last few months ...

    @pjfla - look to your machine for your problems ...

    I know I have problems on the machine; it is old, slow and cranky. I clear cache and history, clean the registry, use a good virus checker, etc. But problems persist. I do have Chrome installed on a newer system and I do not have the crashing issue.

    And despite the problems, I am happy now to use Chrome instead of Firefox which is taking longer and longer to load and run.

    However, until I replace this machine, I hope to find a way to suppress the message from Chrome, on restart, to restore my previous settings.

    Just ignore it, it only appears on the homepage when you start Chrome ...

    It doesn't affect the operation of Chrome ...

    I know it doesn't affect anything - it is just - to me - an annoyance.

    It may be too premature to say this - but I have not seen that message since I changed the settings in Options/General Tab:

    from:
    On Startup, open the home page (which for me is about:blank)

    to:
    On Startup, open the following page(s):
    about:blank
