First start of Google-Chrome after boot takes about 10-15 Seconds, after that chrome starts immediately.

On my previous Fedora installation, this was not the case.

So I thought this must be something with my arch-linux installation/configuration. But I really don't have a clue how to track this problem down...

when I start chrome via terminal I get these error-messages:

[1212:1212:0122/194748:ERROR:profile_sync_service.cc(1200)] History Delete Directives datatype error was encountered: Delete directives not supported with encryption. [1212:1212:0122/194751:ERROR:CONSOLE(1)] "Uncaught ReferenceError: ntp is not defined", source: (1)

any suggestions?

Call chrome from a terminal and give us the output log of the program invocation so we can have more clues. – vfbsilva Jan 22 '14 at 18:45

Seems to be a kown bug: code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=314188 Which version of chrome are you using? – vfbsilva Jan 22 '14 at 18:53
Version 32.0.1700.77 – makim Jan 22 '14 at 18:56
the report I provided you is from version 32.0.1685.0 so this might still be an open issue. – vfbsilva Jan 22 '14 at 19:29
