None of that means much to me. Try downloading the Chrome deb from Google and installing that. The Google version keeps everything in it's own folders in /opt. The Chromium from the repos is always going to be miles out of date. I am currently using version 15. It would appear your problems are not necessarily with Chrome but something more systematic.
