Apparently there is not a canary build for Linux so I can't (easily) test this.

Since the canary builds are built daily it sounds like this could well be a Chrome regression. Is Chrome crashing entirely? If so I think you should definitely report the problem to the Chromium guys.

If it's not entirely crashing Chrome but just saying that the extension has been disabled due to a crash then let me know and I'll see if I can reproduce the problem and see if there's anything we can do our end.

Either way thanks for reporting the problem, it's really useful to get an early warning about a potential problem.

Thanks, Dave.

It's crashing only ABP. Tried also another blocking extension (ubo) ==> no issue it's working fine.
In console I see ...nothing (or I dont know how to catch such event)

Dave, I can confirm the same problem under the same scenario.

Only ABP crashes, not Chrome.

Interesting OK, will get a virtual machine fired up and try to reproduce :/

  • Status changed from new to closed

I can reproduce this but it looks like a Chromium regression since I'm getting a nullptr error when I enable logging. I've filed an issue on their tracker:

Thanks again for reporting, if you have a minute please star the issue on their tracker and hopefully they'll take care of this for us.

it seems all fine with the last canary
Version 58.0.2992.0 canary (64-bit)

Thanks, that's good to know.

The Chromium tester had a go at reproducing the issue and failed, I've pushed him to try again since everyone here managed to reproduce. It would be reassuring if he could confirm the regression was fixed and when it was fixed.
