Recent Tabs Requiring Chrome Restart

I run multiple Chrome profiles on my computer to keep work separate from home, etc. The recent tabs extension continues to fail for me until I close all profiles and restart chrome. then it works fine. But after opening multiple profiles it seems to stop working again. Have you heard of this before?


  • Are you using the default method #1 from the options?

  • Yes, I did change from having it "Global" to "Chrome" to see if that makes a difference.

  • I just tested with with 2 profiles and it works.

    Can you debug it further by closing all then open another profile 1 by by and checking that works until it doesn't. Maybe one profile in particular is problematic, have you also assigned a shortcut key for each profile?

  • So far, changing it from "Global" to "Chrome" has worked for me.
