System: Ubuntu 16.04
All was fine until today. And then: chrome crashes while watching a YT video.
No addon / Plugin / Extension added recently.
When trying to restart chrome via launch panel: chrome opens, I can see an empty tab and a small window (sth like chrome wasn't shut down correctly ...)
But both, chrome main window and the small notification window disapearing within a fraction of a second.
Trying to start it from the command line:
$ google-chrome ATTENTION: default value of option force_s3tc_enable overridden by environment. Segmentation fault (core dumped) $ google-chrome-stable ATTENTION: default value of option force_s3tc_enable overridden by environment. Segmentation fault (core dumped) $ google-chrome --disable-gpu [17251:17251:0605/162551.711779:ERROR:gpu_process_transport_factory.cc(1017)] Lost UI shared context.

Segmentation fault (core dumped) $ google-chrome --version Google Chrome 67.0.3396.62
Reboot doesn't help.
Both versions are links to this executable: /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome
which is 10 days old:
$ ls -l /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1873 Mai 25 21:08 /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome
Chrome is used every day since without problems.
Other Programs are starting without issues.
One hour later:
Chrome can be started, using this line:
this leads me to the conclusion that one of these extensions is causing the problem.
BUT: I need my extensions!
So, I'd like to
- get a list of the installed extensions, then
- start chrome from the commandline, disabling the extensions one by one, until the offender is found
Is that possible?
Or what other options do I have?
