Google Chrome is a fantastic web browser. Unfortunately, it is not perfect.
The biggest frustration that users have is when they try loading a page that suddenly stops responding for no apparent reason. This can be a minor annoyance when it blocks the page, but it is a lot worse when it causes the entire browser to crash. Generally, these types of errors are isolated cases that are resolved when we close and reopen the tab in question. In some cases, you have to reload the browser, which isn’t the end of the world either. However, when this problem reoccurs frequently, that is a sign that something is not working as it should.
Troubleshooting Chrome Browser Loading Problems
We have all encountered a message from Google Chrome stating that a particular window has stopped working. This message allows us to choose what we want to do to handle the message. Unfortunately, sometimes those solutions don’t help. If you close the window and wait to see if it responds, then the problem will still be there.
This is because there is a bug causing a conflict between the host server that you are trying to access and the browser. You must locate the cause of the problem and fix it as soon as possible to make your browser work normally.
How to correct Google Chrome problems when a page crashes and doesn’t respond
One of the most common reasons that web pages fail is due to problems with the browser’s cache. For that reason, one of the first solutions that you should consider is clearing the entire browser cache. To do this, write “chrome://settings/clearBrowserData” in the address bar. On the page that appears, you select the option to delete the files and images stored in the browser’s cache.
If the browser continues to cause problems after clearing your cache, then you need to consider other options. Another reason why some pages is that there are incompatibilities with various extensions that you have installed. This is especially common if you have
installed extensions related to security or extensions that usually interact very aggressively with the system.
To rule out this problem, you will need to go to the browser extensions section by typing “chrome://extensions/” in the address bar. Once you reach the corresponding page, you will need to disable all the extensions that have been activated. After doing this, you will need to restart the browser. It is not necessary to uninstall them, since disabling them temporarily is enough to determine if any of them might be the root cause of the problem.
Another reason why extensions may fail is because of third party cookies. To block them until we deduce if it is the reason, or not, why it fails, we simply have to write “chrome://settings/content” in the address bar and in the cookies section we block third party cookies.
If all else fails, you might need to start over with an entirely clean slate clean. This means you will need to uninstall Google Chrome and install it again.
Start by deleting the Google Chrome browser and creating a new one to rule out that the problems that are related to any misconfigurations you might have inadvertently made. In addition to ruling our user caused problems, you can also take advantage of the factory default Google Chrome preferences. This might be necessary if some parameter was misconfigured.
There is another benefit of uninstalling and reinstalling Google Chrome. You might resolve problems caused by older browsers. Some of them might have been resolved with beta testing, so the new version might have gotten rid of them.
