Google Hangouts Crashes and Burns



  • Since this morning, my Google Hangouts crashes the browser. The hangouts app window is blank:
    0_1489421813095_upload-606f269b-c5c5-46d8-8d40-ad352aa3d1c1
    The actual chat is in a separate browser window:
    0_1489422035415_upload-3cbe2e3d-8cb5-4638-8f15-3ed8b7bfc00b
    When I close either of those two, the entire browser just quits. I am running 1.8.770.25 (Official Build) (32-bit).

    Just my curiosity & suggestion.

    Because Google Hangout extension has a love & hate relationship to Vivaldi, especially with snapshot, which most of time based on Chromium beta.

    Why not make a webpanel of https://hangouts.google.com/ directly?

    But there's a trick to add that page to webpanel.

    • Add first https://hangouts.google.com/ to web panel. Immediately change it to Desktop version.
    • Add second https://hangouts.google.com/ to web panel.

    If you re-click the first one, it suddenly change to real
    https://hangouts.google.com/ page.

    It will direct you to Google Play Hangout app if not do all of steps above. It because Vivaldi webpanel promote it self as Android (Check it's useragent)

    You could remove the second https://hangouts.google.com/ webpanel now.



  • @dLeon Thanks for the response. By the way, this glitch also happens in 1.7.735.46 (Stable channel) (32-bit), although inconsistently.

    This one doesn't even could find network.
    And its window annoyingly follow me around to all my virtual desktops.

    I wonder, if that notification option cause the crash.
