Chrome vulnerability leaves Wi-Fi networks open to attack

Chrome vulnerability leaves Wi-Fi networks open to attack
Recommended steps include only logging in to your Wi-Fi router for configuration or updating using a separate browser or an Incognito browser session. Also clearing your browser's saved passwords and not saving credentials for unsecure HTTP pages, deleting saved open networks and not allowing automatic re-connection to networks, and changing pre-shared keys and router admin credentials as soon as possible.
Latest update may need to be done manually: Version 69.0.3497.81 (Official Build)

Go into Help> About Google Chrome... Allow update and then Relaunch.

Latest update has pinned Gmail Tab that does not return when a mail link window is closed...


When I open an email link it used to return to that pinned tab when a link was closed.
Now Chrome just goes to tab to right of the closed link tab on my 32 bit laptop. 64 bit works OK.
