Updates to the Chrome browser often cause issues for users who do not have the most recent version.
Unless you have specifically disabled it Chrome will check for updates every couple of hours and automatically update itself, but here's how to manually tell Chrome to update itself.
Below are the steps that you can take to check your browser version and refresh your browser cache in order to resolve these issues.
Check your version of Chrome is up to date
1. Click the "Customize and Control" button
In the top-right corner of the Chrome window you'll see the Customise menu icon - it looks like three little black dots on top of each other - click it.
2. Hover your mouse on the "Help" menu item
When you hover on the Help menu item another menu will appear out to the side - it contains the About Google Chrome option.
3. Click "About Google Chrome"
As soon as you open the "About" screen for Chrome, it will automatically start to check if there are any updates available for your copy of Chrome. If there are updates available it will start to download them. You don't need to do anything to start this process.
4. If Chrome finds updates, click "Relaunch" to install them
If Chrome finds updates, it will automatically download and install them. Once this is done you need to click the Relaunch button to finish this process. Clicking it will restart Chrome. Chrome should remember which websites you have open and reopen them when it starts up again.
