This bug first appeared when I installed Google chrome beta for Ubuntu next
to chromium. After disabling extensions, re-installing, re-starting, and
everything I could think of to no avail, I simply uninstall-ed Google
chrome beta and switched back to chromium which never had this problem.
Now, I presume chromium has updated to include the code that caused this in
chrome beta as the issue just started occurring today in chromium for me.
