Have you tried renaming the configuration folder for the browser? There is a folder inside ~/.config which you can rename after closing all instances of Chromium. When you launch the browser you will get vanilla settings.

how would i be able to rename it could you give me like bit of a run down on how to?

Brandon (evox) said : #5

ok i just tried that went to open browser and it added a new set of config files but still nothing

If you open the file manager and show hidden files (I believe it's ALT + H) then open ~/.config you will see the folder

Right click the Chromium folder and add "_old' to the folder name

Can you help with this problem?
