This is being typed on PortableApps Firefox 60.02.
Open Chrome with 1 tab and it crashes Firefox or Waterfox. First it crashes the Stylish, Ublock Origin and a few more extensions then Firefox. Before the update everything co-existed without probems.
Looking in Process Explorer I can see GoogleChromePortable.exe and 1 subprocess with 5 below it.
Close Chrome and only the last spawned process closes.
The main program and 4 below it are still running.
I don't update every time so I'm not sure what version I updated from.
Normally update every few weeks.
Found Liberkey, installed it and Chrome and started it. Liberkey says Chrome is still running.
Force closed Chrome and tried again. Version 67.0.3396.62 causes no problems.
It seems Liberkey chooses not to be bleeding edge though this is is the first time in years an update from Portable Apps has caused major problems.
Since Chrome is a resource hogging POS I only use it when I need automated page translation fro a language I don't understand. Since I don't speak Tagolog yet that's when I fired p Chrome.
I blame Google, not the devs here since Google won't let anyone revert ANY of their programs.
I no longer use any Google apps or programs unless nothing else will do the job. I suggest you do the same.
Disconnect search, turning off location finding and history in Android, saying no whenever Google asks, all protect your privacy and weaken Google. The company is too big, powerful and invasive. Help stop it any legal way you can.
