Chrome Grid Bug Update /Link
An update on where things stand with that weird page-blanking bug.
I mentioned late last week, in my post about Chrome 57 having landed Grid layout, that there is a bug that affects some people. Well, further investigation has revealed that the bug doesn’t seem to be in the Grid layout engine. Instead, disabling selected extensions makes the bug go away.
The odd part is that the extension seems to vary. In my case, disabling Window Resizer fixed the problem. Before you think it’s all their fault, though, Rachel Andrew discovered that disabling Window Resizer in her copy of Chrome did not solve the problem. For her, it was disabling the LastPass extension that did it. I don’t even have the LastPass extension installed on my machine, in any browser.
So: if you run into this problem, try disabling extensions to see if that fixes it. If so, you can enable them one at a time and test to see which one triggers the bug. With any luck, a fix will be found soon and deployed via auto-updating. And if you find out anything else, please let us know on the bug report!
