I think it is safe to say I use the forums more than anyone and I have not had any of these problems with Firefox on Win7 machines or Mac. Nor has it been a persistent problem on my Android phone.

Sounds like Chrome is borked. I only use Chrome for specific work stuff, not for routine browsing.

Everything changed when Google dropped "don't be evil" from the mission statement

Maybe they only dropped the 'don't' and kept the rest.

If you say 'chrome' backwards real fast over and over it sounds like..... "Red Rum"?  ???   What could be evil about Red Rum?

I sometimes forget to log out of GH and leave it overnight, so I'm surprised even with that happening a lot I'm not in that top 10 of time online, either.

I gotta get a life.

If any of us did, there'd be no posts here. ;D
