I’ve too been hit by this bug (also in google-chrome-stable -since
several weeks ago-).

The pkill -f 'chromium --type=gpu-process' workaround works for me (also
in chrome).

I have 3 pc’s where I use chromium and google-chrome a lot (mostly the

o) desktop with up2date debian sid
o) laptop with up2date debian stretch
o) laptop with up2date debian jessie

IIRC, all of them have the same version of chromium/google-chrome-stable

It only happens to me on my desktop with debian sid. If it’s of any
relevance, it has this video card:

03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV730 GL [FirePro V5700]

While the other 2 laptops have an intel.

I would happily provide any information or do any test to help fix this.
It’s really annoying.
