I have Blu studio 5.0 on Android 4.1. When I open the tab viewer in Chrome, all I get is a list of open tabs and no preview of them. Does anyone know why?

I have this problem on the beta and regular version.

simple list of open tabs

    It would be helpful to have details concerning your device and system version. – wbogacz Aug 23 '13 at 2:33

    Can you post a screenshot? I can't imagine what that looks like. – geffchang Aug 23 '13 at 14:35

You've (accidentally) enabled Accessibility Tab Switcher.

From AndroidPolice,

Chrome Beta for Android has an experimental "Accessibility Tab Switcher" flag that'll allow you to switch tabs in a compact, pleasing interface, also enabling you to bring back closed tabs with a handy "undo" button.

You can find the setting on chrome://flags/#enable-accessibility-tab-switcher

  • I just tried on Nexus 5, Android 6.0.1, Chrome 50, but it didn't seem to work though. – Andrew T. May 4 '16 at 18:34

Try going into settings -> Application Manager -> Chrome -> Force Stop -> Clear data (Warning this will clear your saved passwords so take a note of them!) -> Clear cache. I hope this works for you it did for me. If this doesn't work try installing another browser such as firefox.
