"Oh Snap!" in Chrome and crashing Firefox: SSD or Ubuntu 16.04?

published Sep 20, 2016 10:55   by admin ( last modified Dec 31, 2016 09:29 )

One of my computers has for some time had the problem that tabs in Chrome get the "Oh snap!" message after a while, and Firefox just crashes mysteriously after many hours. This computer runs Ubuntu 16.10 and has an M2 SSD. Now my laptop is showing exactly the same behaviour, after having had an SSD installed.

I wonder if this is because the hardware isn't up to handling the speed of the SSD drives or if there is some kind of conflict between the SSD and the OS. I will slow down the SSD bus speed on the laptop and see if that helps.

Update 2016-12-31:

It helped!
