Overwolf client crashes with new CEF version

Issue Description: My Overwolf client crashes while using my app. I downgraded to and no longer experience any crashes confirming that it seems to be related to the new CEF version.
Can you reproduce it (exact steps to reproduce): I can’t reproduce it reliable but it seems to be more frequently crashing while using the live search feature of my app which uses the content scripts that were broken in the 0.14 version.
Impact for my app: It’s a big issue if the new CEF version gets further phased out and more users are crashing because of that.
Do you currently have a workaround? Downgrading the client version.

Please reproduce and attach a zip package of your OW client logs
around 10:37 and 11:02

Can you please try the following steps:

  1. Go back to the latest CEF release version
  2. Delete the %localappdata%/overwolf/browsercache directory
  3. Manually launch Overwolf via: %programfiles(x86)%/Overwolf/overwolf.exe

See if you still get crashes.

Has been resolved with the 0.16 version. Thanks for fixing it so fast!
