comment Chrome opening and immediately closing a tab after clicking SOME links
@Lohoris A malicious extension cannot pretend that it is from the CWS when it is not. And you can safely tar the extensions directory. The static extension files are saved in Extensions/ (Extensions/[extensionid]/[version]/), the extension data is stored elsewhere (in one of the sqlite or leveldb databases, depending on the storage method used by the extension).

comment Chrome opening and immediately closing a tab after clicking SOME links
Sounds like a malicious of badly written Chrome extension. Could you zip all of your extensions and mail it to me for further analysis? If all of the extensions are from the Chrome Web Store, posting the 32-character extension ids is also sufficient.

comment Google Chrome Crash Report Analysis
When I find a crash in Chrome, I usually try to check whether it is reproducible, and if it is, run it in gdb. Have you already read chromium.org/developers/crash-reports and chromium.org/developers/decoding-crash-dumps?
