Bug Description

Is a copy of bug in chromium bugtracker

Chrome Version: 60.0.3086.0 (Also occurred in the 59 branch on the same machine.)
OS: Elementary OS (Ubuntu 14.04 based Linux distro)

What steps will reproduce the problem?
(1) Right click on an image and "save (download) as..."
(2) Save the file somewhere
(3) Notice Chrome's entire interface is frozen. Keyboard commands don't work nor mouse interaction.

What is the expected result?

Chrome's UX to not freeze.

What happens instead?

Chrome's UX is locking up completely.

Please use labels and text to provide additional information.

Instead of finding an image to download, you can also use any page with a file input and select a file to upload. Once the item is selected and the OS's file manager closes, Chrome freezes.

This in the omnibar is a good testcase: data:text/html,<!doctype html><input type=file>

Same problem in Elementary OS Loki 0.4.1

Noob question: has this fix been deployed for the general public? The bug still occurs for me on Elementary OS with Chromium and Vivaldi browsers.

This Problem did affect me at one and for me was linked to Dpkg Was Interrupted Error, Running sudo dpkg --configure -a fixed chrome crashing on open file chooser dialog for me, hopes this information is useful.
