My Chrome Clear Browsing Data mechanism keeps getting stuck, but I can't cancel it while it's running, and have to close its window to escape it. When I reopen the Clear Data dialog box
(ctrl h, etc.), the cache + cookies, which are what I'm usually trying to delete, seem to be cleared, but not always. Sometimes, if I completely close Chrome (all windows, that is) then reactivate it from my desktop, the Clear Browsing Data mechanism will run smoothly for its customary clearing session, from start to finish.
The problem began just a few days ago.
Thanks for whatever help, including advice, you can provide for me.
P.S. So far, my actual browsing history deletes per item or altogether without trouble. My only difficulty has occurred when trying to erase cache and cookies via Chrome's Clear Browsing Data tool. Thanks.--j
