Chrome or chromiun ... the same problem!
I read the post https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?dist=unstable;package=chromium but I am not able to find the solutions...

So chrome via google AND  chromium via dpkg?    /usr/local/bin versus /usr/bin   --  if so - a not very reproducible environment.  Your chromium might be dancing between /usr/local/... and /usr/...  for libraries.   

Giving more data is helpful.  Straight from the machine is helpful.

You do have apt-listbugs installed, right? 

I have chromium on

Code: [Select]
root@raunes:/# apt policy chromium
chromium:
  Installed: 53.0.2785.143-1
  Candidate: 55.0.2883.75-3
  Version table:
     55.0.2883.75-3 500
        500 http://debian.mirror.rafal.ca/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages
 *** 53.0.2785.143-1 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I unheld chromium via "apt-mark unhold chromium"  Scheduled to add libre2-3 with the update.  ("aptitude show libre2-3" will show you what that does)  and "apt install chromium" yields a bug listiing of 848029  - which is  for jessie.  I now am up to 55.0.2883.75-3  Will try it out.

Thank a lot, sure I installed apt-listbugs.

root@sparky:/home/matmad# apt policy google-chrome-stable
google-chrome-stable:
  Installato: 55.0.2883.87-1
  Candidato:  55.0.2883.87-1
  Tabella versione:
 *** 55.0.2883.87-1 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
The path of Google Chrome has usr/bin/google-chrome-stable

On my PC there  isn't Chromium

1.  Good. you do not have two similar versions of a browser from Google installed.

You can look at the Debian Bugtracking System (BTS)for Chromium and see if any bugs for the freer version are similar to your Chrome bugs, but they do differ from each other.  You might have to search the web for info about Chrome and linux and bugs.  Chromium was freezing up on me for a bit there, and presently I am using Firefox-esr much more. It should get better.  Maybe check via htop and see if spawned processes from ad-blockers disappear when the tab for a site is closed.
