I'm using xubuntu 12.04 and Chrome on a two year old desktop. Chromium
i found seemed to have problems with login ID and password - i thought
google had done some 'polishing' to chromium as well as adding their
tracking (which i don't mind) and so decided to use Chrome.

As for the bug possibility it could of course be the mouse i use and
Chrome not getting on too well somehow. The mouse is a Logitech Marble
which although old now works faultlessly with each other application.
As no one else has a problem it would seem somehow it's on my machine.

here's a couple of examples. I noticed several times looking at goods
on amazon.co.uk that i couldn't go back to previous page. It seems to
be if one clicks on the image to enlarge then one can't go back... but
not always the case.



Yet with Firefox never a problem so i rule out that it could be the
mouse or something on this PC. Not a problem i'll go back to using
Firefox which is the xubuntu default anyway.
