Bug Description

Downloaded the Chrome web browser (Deb/ubuntu 64 bit) from the google site. Clicked Save; opened the saved file from within the browser (Firefox) the software centre opened up automatically and then crashed, offering me the option to report. I thought it might be helpful to do so.

As just mentioned in my dupe - the current opera deb (http://www.opera.com/browser/download/ ) causes the same crash and also is refused by gdebi
