I've had a problem for 5 months :(.

I open a new tab in Chrome and begin searching by typing something in the URL bar. Then, Chrome begins to freeze. I Force Quit Chrome. I open again and begin typing the URL bar again and again I get the same freezing.

I tried to update, do a full remove and clean install but I couldn't solved this problem.

A video of this problem:

Just to be sure I understand correctly - in the video it appears that repeatedly pressing i freezes Chrome. Is that the only time it freezes? – wxs Jun 3 '12 at 20:49
Yes that is i – s3yfullah Jun 26 '12 at 18:26
This sounds like a Chrome bug. – ephsmith Jun 27 '12 at 15:17
I don't think it's a Chrome bug - I'm running Chrome on my MBP with Lion and I'm able to press i several times without it freezing. TeknoSeyfo, are you on the latest versions of Chrome and Lion? – gtmtg Jun 27 '12 at 17:57
