    Yesterday Wackbag stopped working with Google Chrome for me. Only the top of the page will load, just down to the ads. Works fine on my iPhone and with IE. Any ideas how to fix this?

    So far I've tried restarting my PC. logging out, and tried to Reinstall Chrome but just got a few already exists errors and gave up.

    I'm pretty sure it's a vBulletin & Chrome thing. The same thing happened to me and a few others who sent me emails and PMs. I think it's something to do with how Chrome is handling JavaScript. I've pretty much switched over to FF for WB. I am looking for a resolution though.

    Happened to me. Installed Adblock for Chrome. Problem solved. Something about the new ads is fucking up Chrome.

    Thanks, I'm going to try this now. In the meantime poopsex, just refresh the page when it loads like crap, that usually works for me.

    Do what Neon did and install Adblock. Problem fixed.

    I just think of it as that annoying hitchhiker that sneaks onto your computer when you're installing something useful, like Flash.

    What? Poopsex?

    I used to think that too, but Chrome is fast. I still use Firefox mostly because I have to have the Google Toolbar and you can't get it with Chrome, which is lame.

    The url bar in Chrome is a google search bar and can mimic other search engines once you use them on their site. I love being able to type in "amazon.com" then hitting tab and searching amazon.

    You don't even have to type the full URL. Once the autocomplete kicks in, you can hit tab right away, so with youtube, all I have to do is type "you" and hit tab and I'm searching youtube. It's a really nice feature.

    I'm talking about the Google Toolbar. I like being able to type a keyword in the search part of it and then being able to click on my Gmail, Youtube, Docs, Calendar, etc., buttons and have it automatically search in those places.

    I'm sure there's a way to probably do it from the address bar, but I don't know how in Chrome.

    Thanks, I was wondering what the problem was. Been using Firefox after getting sick of doing the refresh thing every new page.
