epicski is crashing Chrome

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

In the last week or two epicski forums have been crashing Chrome. 2 different laptops--one dinosaur with xp, one with Windows 7, two different locations, different ISP's. I'm not having trouble with any other sites.

Going to need more specifics than that, like how often it crashed, if it was on a specific page or trying to do a specific action, etc.

pretty much every visit to multiple forums--I'm usually on General Ski or Gear. Occurs while reading, replying, quoting. I'll see if I can narrow it down.

Try clearing out your cache.

I use chrome with multiple windows open all the time. No crashes.

didn't help. Like I said--2 different computers, 2 different locations, 2 different OS, and no other sites.  Sometimes when posting, sometimes just reading.

If you're using Chrome on both computers it is probably synchronizing your plug-ins. Try running it with your plug-ins disabled to troubleshoot (as no one else is reported any Chrome instability).

Or people don't bother because the response is always that the problem is at the user's end. Since I'm not having problems with any other websites and since the problem started simulataneously on 2 different computers I have no desire to change my chrome settings. Bye.

Well, when I'm on the PC, I'm using Chrome and Windows 7 without problems. You're acting like the "response" is invalid based just on YOUR experience, but there's thousands of members here. Just how many could possibly be not "bothering"? Tyler has suggested a normal troubleshooting step, simplify the environment to isolate the problem. If you don't want to work on that, then you're stuck with your situation.

The fact that it is happening on two different machines doesn't mean much if both machines have the same extension running that is interacting with the page. EpicSki is very heavy on JavaScript use, if you're running an extension that also is utilizing JavaScript there could be some crossed wires causing the crash. Most websites don't have the level of interactivity that EpicSki does so they're mostly loading HTML/CSS elements. Over half our traffic is on Chrome, if it was an issue with EpicSki it would be evident very quickly, which means that it has to be something installed on your Chrome causing it.

The only extension i'm running is norton security toolbar.

BTW--I'm up to 3 computers with the problem. Just reloaded Windows 7 on an old laptop of my son's that he had completely wiped (DBAN).

Well just disable the bar for a while and see if it stops. It's not like it needs to be removed. I use Norton to sync between Android and Windows devices. No problem.

We had a perform for a while with Iobit's Malware Fighter arguing with Windows Defender. It kept crashing Chrome. Once we removed Malware Fighter (after all we still have Windows Defender and Norton), everything was fine.

Try browsing EpicSki for a bit with that disabled and see what happens.
