Chrome Breaks Custom Search Engines – version 37.0.2062.94

Google Chrome version 37.0.2062.94 breaks custom search engines. Yep, that’s right. If you had added custom search engines ( and custom shortcuts ) in your Chrome preferences they will not work in incognito mode with this version of Chrome, at least on Mac OS X. This has been an issue even with this version of chrome was in BETA mode, but now it is also affecting the “stable” version. It may be worth it to downgrade to an older version of Chrome. If you do this you may get the message about “Your profile is from a newer version of Google Chrome” but that can easily be remedied. ( just search for the message )

Install syslinux 3.86 on Ubuntu

Get the syslinux 3.86 download from here, maybe the syslinux-3.86.tar.gz file To build syslinux-3.86 on Ubuntu, Debian, and similar: apt-get install build-essential nasm cd /tmp wget “https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/3.xx/syslinux-3.86.tar.gz” tar -xf syslinux-3.86.tar.gz cd /tmp/syslinux-3.86 make you will most likely get some errors about building for windows, but when this process finishes you will have the 3.86 version of syslinux working. Execute the main program by running: /tmp/syslinux-3.86/linux/syslinux You can also do a make install but that may conflict with other versions of syslinux you have installed ( if you have already tried apt-get install syslinux, for example) Another note, you can run apt-get install syslinux-legacy to get a version of syslinux that is around 3.63 to 3.82: Check all of the versions by doing something like this: $ which syslinux /usr/bin/syslinux $ strings /usr/bin/syslinux | grep SYSLINUX SYSLINUX SYSLINUX 4.05 SYSLINUX 4.05 20140113 $ which syslinux-legacy /usr/bin/syslinux-legacy $ strings /usr/bin/syslinux-legacy | grep SYSLINUX SYSLINUX SYSLINUX 3.63 Debian-2012-04-16 $ strings /tmp/syslinux-3.86/linux/syslinux | grep SYSLINUX SYSLINUX SYSLINUX 3.86 0x53e5a115
