Other browsers tested:

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Visit
2. Login with a valid account.

What is the expected result?

Normal login.

What happens instead?

The browser crashes with the famous "Aw Snap!" message.

This worked in previous versions of Chrome... I believe 5.0.342.2 and

The only way I am able to successfully get around the problem is to use the Chrome 
Extension "IETab" which uses the Internet Explorer renderer to render the page. The 
website, however, worked fine in previous versions of Chrome and only started crashing 
recently, which leads me to believe that an update of some kind has led to this 
instability and, for whatever reason, is only affecting this one site... and only right 
after a successful login.

AHA... so, in my case at least, I determined the culprit to this problem.

I was using the --enable-geolocation switch.

It appears the --enable-geolocation switch causes Chrome to crash upon logging into a 
Chase account at Weird.

Hopefully the geolocation functionality won't become official until this is sorted

joth, you may want to take a look at this

I don't have a account, but I will note this with the QA team in case they have 
Quite a few things have changed on the trunk since the dev channel build, but would be 
good to resolve this anyway. Some questions:
Is it expected that there is would be using geolocation?
Does running with --log-level=0 produce any useful output at the point of the crash?

This is once again an issue with the latest builds of Chromium.  I had been able to log into my Chase 
account with earlier versions, but with version 5.0.370.0 (43826) , the browser crashes with the "Aw 
Snap" message upon log-in.

Are you using the --enable-geolocation switch?

If not, maybe in version 5.0.370.0 this is now on by default?

On a whim, try using the --disable-geolocation (not sure if it exists) and see if 
this changes anything.

Apr 8, 2010
Adding the the --disable-geolocation switch does not appear to fix the problem.
Apr 8, 2010
That's unfortunate. I visit nearly every day. There have been two separate 
issues in the past regarding Chrome with ... one which needed to be fixed 
in the build... the other which involved keeping geolocation disabled... and now a 
third problem?

I am on the dev channel and it still sees 5.0.366.2 as the latest, so I am not 
experiencing it yet. However, once I end up with the next update to the dev channel, 
if I have a problem with, I'll report my findings here.

In the past, to get around problems until Chrome is fixed, I use the IETab 
extension and have a bookmark to the corresponding chrome-extension://... path for This way, I am only one bookmark away from using and avoiding 
crashes until the problem is fixed (again). It's a bit slower (due to using IE's 
rendering engine), but at least I don't have to load IE separately.

Apr 8, 2010
OK, today I upgraded from 5.0.366.2 to 5.0.371.0 (Official Build 43900) dev.

5.0.366.2 worked just fine when logging into, unless you have the --enable-
geolocation flag set... if that were the case, the browser would immediately crash 
upon  a successful login attempt.

With 5.0.371.0, it crashes immediately upon login, without the --enable-geolocation 

For the Chromium developers out there... is the geolocation feature now activated in 
this build?

If not, it looks like is an unfortunate victim of several different bugs 
which keep getting introduced into Chrome. Help!

Upgrade to 5.0.371.0 and try the --disable-geolocation switch and see if logging into works for you.

Apr 9, 2010
Looks very likely this is a duplicate of  bug 40478 , however without logs / call stack it's hard to tell.
Apr 9, 2010
I can reproduce this error in 5.0.371 and am trying to produce a log file for you using 
--log-level=0 but I can't find chrome_debug.log

In answer to your question, I would not expect would be using geolocation 
(it's a credit card company) but I suppose it's possible they're using it to send you 
to the right country-specific website.
Apr 9, 2010
Looks like you also need --enable-logging, see for more

Also, if you can get a call stack as per
guidelines/reporting-crash-bug that would be great too.

I'm getting this issue as well. Running build 5.0.371
Apr 9, 2010
Debug log attached.  The Windows event log said "Crash uploaded. Id=437c6777c2c56f0d.", 
I assume you can get the call stack from that?

Looks like that call stack is still working it's way through the system, can't seem to load it yet.
(Apparently there should be a copy on your machine too, in 

Anyway, in looking for it I saw there's now several other examples of this crash in the system, and all of them 
point to this being a duplicate of  bug 40478  as suspected, which is good. (e.g. http://crash/reportdetail?

Do you want me to attach the dump from my machine?
Apr 9, 2010
No it's OK thanks, the stack made it's way through in the end.

Copying relevant part here. It is indeed a duplicate of 40478 so merging this one into that.

Running with --disable-geolocation appears to fix the problem for me. I can now login 
to once again.

For what it's worth, this seems to work for me now. I am not using --disable-
geolocation anymore... also, as a test, I used --enable-geolocation (in case it was 
disabled by default in the latest dev channel build). When using version 5.0.375.7 
(Official Build 44408) [dev channel], I am able to login to without any 

In any case, this is great news!

@iambob, great news, thanks very much for confirming the fix.
