Full Version: Chrome 18 keeps crashing

Hi,
I'm using the AMI image "IE9/Chrome/Firefox - ami-0f7eae66". Recently when I execute a test using Chrome 18, chrome will launch but will immediately crash with the error "Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed. Relaunch now?" and terminate. If I open up chrome manually it runs fine.

I'm guessing that because this just started failing that maybe this is a result of chrome updating itself? Is anyone else having this problem or how can i best debug it?

FWIW firefox works fine

Try grabbing the latest version of the Chrome agent code just to make sure you are running the same code that the public instance is:

- Download http://www.webpagetest.org/work/update/wptupdate.zip
- Put the zip file in your /work/update directory
- Extract wptupdate.ini from the zip file and put it in /work/update as well

I'm using the AMI quite regularly for testing and haven't had any problems with it but it could be because I'm on a newer agent codebase.
Hi Patrick,

Thanks that fixed it.

Just out of curiosity, at what point does the server push the update to the client?
When the clients poll for work, they include their current software version. If the server has a different version available then that is pushed to the client instead of the job. So the clients should not process any new jobs until they are updated (effectively immediately).
I have updated the test agents using https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.o...st-Agents.

But while I do the test in chrome and firefox, they crash, though on restoring they give results.
