Google Chrome v32 - Pages Unresponsive


When using Todoist in the last couple of days, I have consistently found that Chrome is issuing a popup after a few seconds on opening the Windows desktop application (ie default browswer - Chrome) that the Todoist page is unresponsive. This gives me the option to "Kill pages" or "Wait".

If I hit wait, it ultimately pops up again. And killing the pages obviously doesn't help usability.

I believe I am able to ignore this and keep using it, but it is getting annoying.

For future reference, is there an option to change the browser that Todoist uses for the Windows desktop application?

Hi Adriaan,

The desktop app currently (though will change) uses IE to connect to Todoist, so it should not be dealing with Chrome at all.

So clarify, your at Todoist.com and it becomes unresponsive, and you get the Kill or Wait message, or that message pops up on some other website, because you tried to open the desktop app?

I suggest clearing the cache for Chrome, as with your other issue, there may be something going on with your installation of Chrome. Let me know if anything gets resolved after doing so.

OK - I now realise what I had done. This also relates to my other thread (http://todoist.com/Support/showQuestion/8736/) in respect to Chrome.

I had previously used Google Chromes ability to create an application shortcut for the Todoist page (Menu > Tools > Create app...) and had this on my taskbar. I mistook this for the Todoist Windows application - my bad.

I have gotten rid of my Chrome application shortcut and now using the Windows app - and it behaves as expected.
