#StackBounty: #windows-10 #google-chrome #audio In Windows 10, Google Chrome keeps muting itself in volume mixer

Bounty: 100

I’m on Windows 10 and just recently I’ve noticed that Google Chrome starts off muted in the volume mixer and needs to be manually un-mute. When left alone for a while, Chrome automatically mutes itself again.

Here is how it looks in the Volume Mixer:


I have uninstalled and re-installed Google Chrome and it did not fix this issue. All solutions of this issue on the internet say that I need to do something with Google Toolbox, which I don’t even have installed.

How can I fix this?

#StackBounty: #google-chrome #firefox #browser #mouse-click Keep Firefox suggestions pane open when middle-clicking on suggestions

Bounty: 50

When you type into the address bar of Firefox, it opens a pane containing suggestions:

Firefox's suggestions pane, showing a variety of Stack Overflow related links

Upon middle clicking on any of these suggestions, it opens the suggestion in a new tab, then switches to that tab, also removing what I’d typed into the address bar.

A GIF speaks louder than words here:


What I’d like to happen is the default for Google Chrome, which is where the suggestions pane doesn’t close upon middle-clicking a suggestion, meaning that I can middle-click to open many tabs from the pane:


How can I emulate Chrome’s pane middle-click behaviour in Firefox?

#StackBounty: #google-chrome #gpu #integrated-graphics #hardware-acceleration #vp9 How to force Chrome to use integrated GPU for decodi…

Bounty: 50

I want Chrome to utilize iGPU (GT630 on i7-8700k) for video decoding, especially VP9 decoding on YouTube. My discrete GPU is GTX970 and it is not capable of decoding VP9. Currently, VP9 is software decoded on my system, putting load on CPU and occasionally skipping frames.

Both GPUs are detected by the system (Windows 10): GT630 as GPU0 and GTX970 as GPU1. I use 2 screens. I don’t care where they need to be connected (970 or Motherboard) as long as Chrome uses iGPU and I can keep using Nvidia for gaming. One of the screens is 144Hz.
The motherboard is ASUS ROG Hero.

I’ve tried different settings, but nothing seems to work as intended, and usually people look for a solution to the exactly opposite problem…

#StackBounty: #google-chrome Chrome last session – Force refresh tabs

Bounty: 50

I use Chrome as a daily-basis browser. When I close my browser I prefer it to “continue last session”, so, when I open it, my already open tabs are there and that’s great.

The problem here is that Chrome saves the “session” and when I start Chrome it will load outdated content tabs instead of the fresh ones.

This is good for some occasions but for my personal use is bad (e.g. for Superuser I want the updated content on).

How can I force Chrome to refresh the content of my tabs when I open it?

#StackBounty: #css #css3 #google-chrome #printing #scale What CSS property corresponds to Chrome's "scale" setting

Bounty: 100

In Chrome’s print dialog (under “advanced”), there is a “scale” setting.

Chrome's print dialog's "scale" setting

What CSS property maps to this setting?

Using this setting, I can adjust the scale of the content to be printed so that it wraps correctly. If I can determine the corresponding CSS property, I can define that scale in the print media rules.

I have tried transform:scale(0.75); and zoom:75%;, but neither setting seems to behave the same way.

#StackBounty: #google-chrome Google Chrome "Continue where you left off" does not continue where I left

Bounty: 50

When I re-open Chrome, it brings back more tabs than I had when closing it.

The extra tabs are tabs that I recently closed (can be 30 min ago). I close Chrome with 5 tabs and come back to 8. They also doesn’t necessary come back in the same order they were before.

From the things I tried and didn’t helped:

  • Disabling all extensions.
  • Cleaning some caches from the browser.
  • Creating a new Chrome user (exist also in the new one).

Any ideas? (which are not just to try to uninstall completely and try again).
