Chrome Profile/Person Name changing by itself.
0
I have a number of different Profile/Persons setup in Chrome, each tagged with a different name. Ever since a recent Chrome update, these names have been changing by themselves back to "Person 1" whenever it's been used to log into a Google service like GMail. The renaming happens when logging out of the Google service. Is there a way to prevent this auto-renaming? It's quite annoying to have to manually change it back every time. Thanks!

In addition to the Person Profile name changing back to "Person 1" or "Person 2" when you sign out, the name will change to the first name of the user who is signed in, this is an issue if you are signed in to multiple accounts that have the same first name, i.e. "webmaster" so it's impossible to tell which account to switch to, since all Persons account have the name "webmaster"

Looks like the latest Chrome update fixed this problem (yay!) but now the Persons menu isn't sorted alphabetically anymore so that's annoying. Why does Google fix one thing but then break something else? :(

Charles,  IMHO the point of Chrome Profiles is to switch between Google Identities (Accounts).  

If you're using Chrome to temporarily login to a Google Service like Gmail, I suggest you use the 'Guest' profile when doing so.
