My Chrome browser version is so old  by now that it doesn't work well with many sites.. I don't see how I can update it, but I'm positive there must be a way. 

Any tips? 

How do I update my firmware as well?

Unfortunately webOS does not run the Chrome browser, websites may misinform you that it is but what they are actually detecting is that the browser is built on WebKit.  WebKit is underlining architecture of many browsers, it is being misdirected as many websites do not yet support Smart TV browsers.  If your TV is running the latest firmware there is no way to update just the browser, the only thing I am afraid you can do is contact any website that does not work and make a constructive complaint about supporting Smart TVs.

      Since this update the Apple TV 4K can no longer connect to Dolby via HDMI.  Immediately prior to this update - it worked.
      Now, if you attempot to connect and set it to Dolby - the screen flashes the Apple TV screen on and off - it can't stabilze.
      This happened immdeiately after the update.  
      Can I revert back to the prior software?  Or, can you send me a version that does not have this issue.

      Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
      I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
      As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
      My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.

      LG 55SJ8500 USA running 05.80.55
       
      Just notified that software update 06.00.05
      is available for my tv, presently running
      05.80.55.
       
      Has anyone installed this update? How did it go?
       
      I typically wait for 1 to 2 weeks to see if there is any negative feedback.
       
      Thanks

      After updating to the latest web browser with new user interface on LG C9, subtitles on all streaming websites disappears every 2-3mins.
      Video continues to play without subs. The subtitles will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
      Should be a widespread issue as it's also happening on Youtube.com videos with subs. Un-related but Play/Stop button on magic remote also stop working on the new browser.
