Sounds like what has changed is the version of Chrome.  As I mentioned 
previously I get exactly the same problem using the latest nightly 
builds of Chromium on Ubuntu 10.04 so it's not a 10.10 problem, more a 
Chrome problem (as Ubuntu 10.10 will most likely be running a newer 
version of Chrome by default compared to the default Ubuntu 10.04.).

Looks like chromium-browser (the only Chrome related package I can find 
in the default repositories on Ubuntu) is version:


in Ubuntu 10.04.1 and version:

in Ubuntu 10.10.

So I presume something changed slightly between the versions (maybe a 
bug was fixed that broke something else?).

I would say if a Google search doesn't throw up anything then maybe log 
a bug on Launchpad here:


You could also try what appears to be the official Chromium page on 
Google Code:


If in the mean time I figure it out I'll let you know (as I say it's 
happened to be a couple of times but I tend to switch between Firefox 
and Chrome so it's not as frustrating for me).
