Thanks for the quick reply. As you saw, I've also submitted this issue to
I need the hardware acceleration that is provided by the nvidia driver so couldn't lose that
just to use a new version of chromium.
At some point I'll upgrade the kernel but this is a significant issue when using the nvidia driver;
if this problem continues until then and is solved by the kernel upgrade, I'll update the bug.
I think there are two issues to consider:
1. this problem did not arise with chromium 38.0.2125.101-2, to which I have now reverted
2. this problem does not arise with google-chrome-stable 39.0.2171.71-1, the same version
as the chromium in this bug report.
These two issues indicate that related software works with the nvidia driver and kernel 3.14,
so more likely is caused by changes that are specific to just this new version of chromium.

Not sure if it matters, but your kernel is quite out of date. jessie
currently has 3.16.0-4, so you could try updating.
Also, since this was with the proprietary driver please try nouveau instead.
