[OS X] Chrome glitches after upgrade to 10.8

I recently was able to update my iMac at work to 10.8 and have encountered a couple glitches related to Google Chrome.

- Chrome is set as the default browser but when I click hyperlinks in Thunderbird, Safari opens. I've tried searching quickly and everything I'm seeing talks about Firefox.

- Downloaded files, so far I can confirm with PDF, PNG, and ICS, don't open when I click on them in the download bar (bottom of window) OR from the "Downloads" window in Chrome. I have to use Finder to go to my Downloads folder to open the files. This sounds like a security setting that's not allowing this.

I did re-download Google Chrome just in case there is a different version for 10.6 vs 10.8.

Any help ?

remove chrome, install chrome, repair permissions

if it still sucks, set safari as default, then set chrome as default.

make it rewrite those settings basically

That did it. I had installed Google Canary a while back and the only trace of it was in my ~/Library folder (nothing in Applications). That seemed to be what was causing the problem.

Thanks !

You should upgrade Chrome to 25. Beautiful.

I'm already on "Version 25.0.1364.99".

With Canary, I ran it for a while but had removed it a couple of months ago. The traces of it remained in ~/Library/Application Support though. I ended up just deleting the profile for Canary and standard Chrome and started fresh.

Sure is! Still having a hard time weaning myself off of Safari.

Something wrong with me mentally:

Windows: Internet Explorer
OS X: Safari
Linux: Firefox

And I have a hard time moving away from that, and i have no idea why!

Even though Safari is Webkit like Chrome, it's pretty suck. Too slow of a release cycle but I like the iCloud integration Safari keeps.

Useful on the iPod...not sure what benefit it is for Safari, unless I missed something.

I never liked Safari, including on the Mac. Not sure why.... I added Firefox right away and later, Chrome.

Okay, it looks like Canary is in fact STILL installed on my system




In Applications, I have ONE icon. It is the standard, multi-colored Chrome icon. I am typing this in standard Chrome and the regular icon is in the dock. If I click the same icon in Applications when Chrome is already open, Canary opens ! It's icon is added to the dock.





How do I uninstall Canary ?

Hand gestures with The Magic Trackpad would be a good reason ...

I meant the iCloud feature on safari. It's supposed to be self explanatory, but it doesn't seem to work for me. All devices sign under same account, and I can have something opened on the iPad or iPhone, and iCloud on MacBook Air is empty. Always. Safari is "checked" under iCloud preferences on all devices, including MacBook Air.

Anyone ? I uninstalled standard Chrome again, deleted the profile data for both Chrome and Canary in /Library, and then reinstalled. Clicking the standard Chrome icon in Applications launches Canary now !
