Does anybody know how to re-enable your own extensions after they were disabled by the Chrome v35 update?
(Mostly greasemonkey scripts in my case, thus simple .js files previously drag-n-dropped in to the extension windows. )

When i started up chrome today i got the warning that some non-chromewebstore extensions were disabled

More info was giving on this link :

Extensions disabled by Chrome

You're seeing this notification because one or more of your Chrome extensions has been turned off to make Chrome safer. The extensions didn't come from the Chrome Web Store or were installed without your permission.

For your protection, you can only use Chrome extensions that you get from the Chrome Web Store.

To see a list of your extensions:

  1. Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Tools.
  3. Select Extensions.

Extensions that have been disabled are grayed out and you won't be able to re-enable them.

I was hoping I could still enable them by activating developer mode for my extensions but still no luck.. Any tips anyone?

P.s. this is not a duplicate from Activating a Chrome extension that is not from the Chrome Web Store as this is related to the chrome v35 update

Best Answer

You can't reactivate them You need to workaround this issue using any of these alternatives (i will list them for grade of difficulty).

Install other Chromium-like browser

Since chromium is open-source there are multiple copies of the project I'm not sure whether chromium has this restriction in place but other projects may not

Moving from Windows/OSX altogether

This restriction was put in place for windows and osx due to security concerns of the entire os The linux builds are not affected You could try every linux distribution
