Default [Q] Chrome (couldn't sign in & text flow issue)

I have Chrome sync running. Shows it is syncing fine under the accounts area and all bookmarks, etc. sync. A couple of times since last night when I open Chrome I get a couldn't sign in prompt. Clicking next does nothing. Running stock rooted mk2. If I close Chrome and reopen all is fine. I can also go into the accounts/sync area and tell it to sync and it works.

Also getting distorted text on xda (but nowhere else yet at least). Screenshot attached. Any thoughts?

Are you using chrome beta? Cuz my beta does the same text distortion and I have to go into landscape mode for it to clear up and be readable. It's very annoying. I haven't tried going back to just the regular chrome version to test it...

Regular Chrome, not beta. I think they might have just pushed an update in the past day or so. maybe that is the culprit. So landscape and back fixes it then?

So no "Couldn't sign in" issues for anyone else though. Been like 4 times today. Only happens when I open chrome, but if i hit back it just works and bookmarks and such seem to be syncing. Maybe a google now issue?

So are we really the only ones with the Chrome text flow issue?

I've been using the DarHorse version found here and it's good so far... Give it a try

You aren't alone on the sign in issue. It happens rarely, but it's started doing it the last two days or so. When I click next it says something about an error and not being able to sign in or something.
