I Can't Highlight / Select Text in the Google Chrome Location Bar!

For some reason lately Chrome won't let me highlight and cut / copy the text in my location bar. The cursor just locks itself wherever I click it. I CAN highlight and select text anywhere else in Chrome and cut / copy though, just not the URL Bar. I'm using Windows 8 64-Bit. Help! Crying

No Sound in Google Chrome?

For some reason all of the sound in my Google Chrome browser doesn't work. Anything that lays audio like YouTube videos, Facebook videos, SiriusXMsiriusXM internet player and things like that don't give any errors, and they look like they're playing, but just silence. I know that my whole computer isn't being affected though because I can still play sound in other browsers like Firefox at the same time.

What is a User Agent String or a Browser String? And How Do I Find Mine?

What is a User Agent string, also known as your Browser string? Well it's basically your computer's information as far as what software you are running. It just gives the basics as to which OS (operating system) you are running, your basic security (if you have any) and which internet browser you are using. It also may tell if some other applications are installed, like the Microsoft.NET framework and the version you have installed.
