Bug Description

UBUNTU RELEASE VERSION:
Ubuntu 12.10

PACKAGE VERSION:
23.0.1271.97-0ubuntu0.12.10.1

EXPECTED TO HAPPEN:
I expect to be able to change all of the settings in the settings menu.

WHAT HAPPENED INSTEAD:
As of the latest version of chromium-browser, you cannot change some settings (e.g. what pages open when Chromium loads).

TERMINAL OUTPUT:
[5705:5705:0117/125258:ERROR:layout.cc(160)] Not implemented reached in ui::ScaleFactor ui::GetScaleFactorForNativeView(gfx::NativeView)
