Google Chrome stays in full screen mode or behaves unusual on Ubuntu

Written by Ian Carnaghan · 15 sec read >

NOTE: Experienced this problem with Google Chrome 5.0.342.9 beta on Ubuntu 9.10


  • First make a backup of all you personal settings eg. Bookmarks
  • Close Google Chrome (Press the key combination Ctrl+e in order to close Chrome)
  • Open a new Terminal Window and type in the following command
    rm -rf ~/.config/google-chrome


    rm -rf /home/YOURNAME/.config/google-chrome
  • Start Google Chrome and you’ll notice that Chrome has been reset and problem may be fixed.
