[Solved] Every browser (Chrome, Chromium) freezes

I installed Spaky for the first time today and got surprised to know how underrated it is!!! However, I'm facing a major issue right from the start: every secondary browser I install freezes the whole system on start. At first I faced it for Chromium, but then I realized it's the same for everything else (Chrome, Brave, Opera). However, the default Firefox works well. Any working solution is welcome.


This is posted two places very recently.   You are not giving us crucial information, your DE and especially  your version of Sparky.  If you are new to linux as always I recommend that you start with the Stable version.   

In the future - posting the output of "inxi -b"  is always good.   Example follows.   Mark up as code via # button.   Ctl-Shift C and to copy from terminal   Ctl-Shift - V to copy to terminal. 

inxi -b

Hi. I'm using the Sparky 6 (Po-Tolo) with Xfce on my Acer Swift SF314-51. I'm a regular user of Debian stable and never faced stuff like this before. I installed the iso downloaded only yesterday and right after installation pushed through an upgrade  :-\. Let me know any update to this issue or any more info required.

Thanks. It seems the issue is with all Chromium-based and anything else just works fine.  ;)
Tested working: Firefox ESR, Midori, Seamonkey, Falkon, Icecat. Gonna stuck with Firefox ESR as my secondary.
