I am still running Kubuntu 14.04 64-bit (not sure how much difference that makes) and ever since Chrome updated to version 51.x I'm seeing a lot of delays in various functionality. For example, if I click on the "other bookmarks" button it's often taking several seconds to open, or when navigating the tools menu it's occasionally lagging when trying to open various sub-menus.
And if so, any ideas on how to resolve?
It's always been pretty snappy in the past.

Doesn't do it every time and so long as I remember to close all my chrome windows first I don't have to worry.

So... I have an oldish Dell desktop that I decided to use in my workout room... Basically just something to watch DVDs, YouTube, or listen to music, etc.
I installed Mint 18 and everything seemed to be fine, machine has been running for a few weeks now. Last night I got a bunch of updates including the kernel so I did those, and everything still seemed fine - and then I rebooted, er rather tried to reboot.
I get past the disk encryption password, it starts booting up and then right before it gets to the login screen, it crashes and I get a page of text that ends with "Kernel Panic" and something about the kernel being out of sync. My best guess is that something about the new kernel just isn't playing nice with my 10 year old hardware.
So how do I go about rolling back? I've rolled back on systems where I can at least boot up, but in this case I can't even get logged into it...
